First time the Bulls have played in front of a home crowd this season FWIW. They're on a B2B after beating Charlotte.

Jaylen out (ankle sprain); TL questionable (turf toe); TT and Langford probable.

Bludgeon the Bulls.

Man this sure feels like a must win. I know it's not, but dropping two to Chicago down the stretch would be really rough when you're just on either side of the 4/5 matchup or in the play-in game and Chicago is coming off a B2B. Offense hasn't put up less than 104 since Fournier came back. Keep scoring.

I'm sure LaVine will get his points, but it would nice if Marcus bothered him a little.

Really, really, want to grab this win before playing two against Miami. Pretty close to a must win in the quest to avoid the play-in IMO. Miami is playing Minnesota tonight so probably need to win to keep pace.

Robert Williams is out due to Spontaneous Combustion. He's day-to-day.

Hope Kemba and Fournier keep playing well into the play-offs(or play-in).

Brad just said they might call on Tacko tonight.

Hopefully, Kornet and or Parker can exact some revenge on the Bulls

Here’s a radical idea if TT is in foul trouble, and the other centers are getting destroyed by Vuc. Play ultra small and use Smart on Vuc and try to shoot him off the court.

Refs should just give TT with ball in the post an automatic turnover.

I hope we see a lot of Kornet tonight. I like him a lot more than others on this board do.

Good to see Fournier playing well too

Ball moving really well without the Jays out there. Good to see.

Still need Smart to shoot less.

Ah, the fewer three-point shots from Smart, the better ... his shooting from distance has been horrid lately.

It looks like Brad took my advice to defend Vuc with Smart

Why would Smart throw up a quick three, after all this great ball movent?

Answer: Because he’s Marcus Smart

Bad coaching. Celts had a foul to waste and didn’t take one, although PP could have easily fouled Satoranaky

the kick out from the paint (Kornet) that ended up with a wide-open 3 from Fournier was the highlight of Q1

TT needs to do that when he gets the ball in the middle

With Nesmith playing like this, my days of watching Ojeyele play the most timid basketball on Earth may finally be over.
