Hop Off the Bandwagon
- In the locker room before Game 4, Tom Thibodeau implored his Bulls team to shake off all mistakes and frustration and move on to the next play. He demanded they show fight from the start to avoid a debilitating hole in the Eastern Conference final.
They answered that demand. And they wound up with nothing but a debilitating series deficit to show for it.
The Bulls battled through four quarters but swooned in overtime, succumbing to the Heat in a 101-93 defeat that sent them spiraling to a 3-1 hole in the Eastern Conference finals, with an elimination game awaiting them in Game 5 at the United Center on Thursday night.
We saw that the Department was already in the process of restricting Time Due the week of 12 June in case of a Finals appearance by the Bulls. Rumors of furlough cancellations were also in evidence. We imagine a lot of sighs of relief are coming out of the fifth floors at HQ and City Hall tonight.
