Default Did we lose yesterdays (NYK) game on purpose?

So after watching yesterdays game, I was left wondering.....Did Casey intentionally let us lose the game yesterday? I mean, we basicly played out our 3ed stringers in the entire 4th quarter, and for some ungodly reason byucks was just chucking up missed shot after missed shot. Our starting 5 was pretty much benched the entire second half, and even when it came down to the wire at the end, out benches bench was on the court. We could have easily of won that game, but for some some reason I feel like Casey kind of wanted to lose to go play BKN......

Thoughts?

Its a valid question, cause it completely looked like a less obvious tank then what BKN did yesterday.

I'm sorry but, your post does not make sense.
The Bulls lost midway through 3rd quarter of Raptors @ Knicks game. That meant we were locked in the 3rd post no matter what happens in our game. Casey benched all the key players to give them rest and avoid any stupid injury. Win or lose, the game didn't matter at all after the Bulls lost.

Once they found out Chicago had lost, it didn't make a difference whether we won or lost.

It wasn't a blowout, rather an OT loss for Chicago.

I was really impressed with how intense Casey remained all the same. He doesn't stop coaching. The team really does reflect his personality. And Lowry matches up nicely with that never say die approach as well.

Um.....

People do realize that with the late season maneuvering, the Bulls now have 2 picks before we get one, the Nets got the Celtics a 2nd pick before we pick once, so does Philly pick twice before us, and so does Orlando pick twice. And 12 of the 18 picks are to land in the east before we pick.



Well, at least there will be several Canadians visiting Toronto all season from now on.

Correct me if I'm wrong. But with the loss yesterday we remain tied with CHI record wise, which mean we will get a chance to flip a coin or something to determine the 19th and 20th pick draft order.

So that could be one reason why we wanted the L yesterday.

Don't know. What is the tiebreaker? Or do the ignore head-to-head?

Pretty sure it is just a random drawing or coin flip.

So like TheSpider said, Raptors now have a chance to get the 19th NBA pick instead of the 20th.

Last year LA Clippers won the tie breaker over Memphis & Houston won the tie breaker against Lakers(All playoff teams).
