Celtics in 5 even without KG. However I CAN see the Bulls winning the series especially if Salmons keeps it going.

Bulls lead 53-44 in the Garden at the half. Derrick Rose has 13 points and 7 assists. The Celtics look very sloppy

the "big 2" for boston haven't showed up, and boston's defense is nonexistent...very interesting to see if chicago can keep it up for another half

Bulls upset Celtics 105-103 in OT! Derrick Rose drops 36 points (most ever for a rookie in his first playoff game) to put the Bulls up 1-0 in the series.

Goodness!!! Rose, Gordon, Thomas put on a show. Especially Rose, Stacy King (Bulls) announcer was going to crazy every time Rose drove the lane. IMO it's 90% over. Ray Allen played like abosolute s***, at the end of regulation and ot me and my bro kept saying Allen was going to hit a three. Glen Davis is one of the worst basketball players right now, he is god awful.

It's nice seeing that the Bulls are starting to produce in the playoffs. One of the main reasons I became a Bobcats' fan.

They lost at home in the playoffs to the Pistons in the Conference Finals. That was it though.
