Default EC PLAYOFFS RD 1 : (1)CHI BULLS vs (8)PHI 76ERS

STARTERS:

CHI

Derrick Rose
Rip Hamilton
Luol Deng
Carlos Boozer
Joakim Noah

PHI

Jrue Holiday
Jodie Meeks
Andre Iguodala
Elton Brand
Nikola Vujevic

KEY ROTATION PLAYERS:

CHI

CJ Watson
Ronnie Brewer
Kyle Korver
Taj Gibson
Omer Asik


PHI

Lou Williams
Evan Turner
Thaddeus Young
Spencer Hawes


Key Matchups:

The one upside PHI has going in to this series is they can play to a standstill one of CHIs biggest advantages, which is their bench. CHIs bench is arguably the best in the NBA, but PHI comes off the bench with 4 guys all capable of putting 15+ points in any particular game.

Derrick Rose and rebounding(as in most cases) will be the key in this series if PHI wants to win games though. I expect Iguodala to shut down Deng as he usually does, so if Jrue Holiday can play decent, and if Rose is still not fully healthy, PHI may actually have a shot at winning a game or two in this series.

PREDICTION:

CHI in 5. CHI SHOULD receive a bigger test than they may imagine as PHI doesnt match up all that horribly with them, but I think the main internal test for CHI is to try and get the Rose/Hamilton backcourt in stride heading in to the next tough 2 upcoming rounds.

Left Knee.


Good thing is, he could sit the rest of this series and Chicago would still win.

Reports out that Rose has an torn ACL and MCL in his left Knee. Done for the postseason.

It's kind of sad since the game was already over.

to thibodeau's credit, a 20 point lead was trimmed to 12. that might be enough reason to keep rose in there with a minute and a half left.

well, the rose-less bulls are stilla pretty solid team. they'll get past philly. but boston must, indeed, be pumped.

I can't even watch the Bulls without Rose. I hate every single player. While Rose is my favourite player in the league.


NOOOOOOOOOO

Also, given how the injury came with no contact, and resulted from a play Rose frequently attempts, I think there was potential for some part of his leg to give way at any time in the series. If not today, maybe a few days from now. He's just been really injured this year without a lot of time to rest. Due to the way he plays, he was probably an injury waiting to happen, until he gets proper rest.
