Da Bulls

The Celtics beat up on the Bulls pretty badly last year, but I’m expecting a (mildly) competitive game tonight. Remember Luol Deng gives Paul Pierce fits. I wish I could back that statement up with facts, but I’m not so good with research on this internet thingy. New Bulls coach Vinny Del Negro has shaken up the starting line-up, at least he did for the season opener against Milwaukee. He started #1 pick Derrick Rose and 6-7 Thabo Sefolosha (who?) in the backcourt. Ben Gordon and Kirk Hrinrich are coming off the bench. Look for the Celtics to pick on Thabo whether he’s covering Ray or Paul.

There are a couple of good head-to-head matchups in this one: Rajon Rondo vs Derrick Rose and K.G. vs Tyrus Thomas – who happens to be best friends with Glen Davis.

“Glen and I talk four or five times a week, and he knows whenever I play somebody who makes you play, who brings it, I like it,” Thomas said. “That stuff helps my confidence and helps me get better. I love going against ‘K.G.’ “

Anyone going to tonight’s game? Better yet – will you be wearing a costume? We’d love to see pics.

  1. pretty sure Deng’s held Pierce to single digit scoring nights a couple times now. He’s silly long w/ that wingspan.

    No prob though. Just pound it down low to #5.
