Noah disappointed, feels for understudy Asik

PHILADELPHIA - Although Joakim Noah was dressed, warmed up and was available to play in Thursday nights Bulls season finale, he didnt set foot on the Wells Fargo Arena court during the Game 6 defeat to the 76ers.

I tried everything I could, a dejected Noah said afterwards. But it wasnt enough to play a basketball game.

I wanted to be out there real bad. Im disappointted right now. It hurts. Its only going to make us stronger, he continued. We fought hard. Its disappointing because I know how much we put into this. Its just hard. The seasons over. Thats tough.

Noahs replacement for the last three games of the series, Omer Asik, missed a pair of free throws with 2.2 seconds remaining, the second of which was rebounded by Sixers All-Star swingman Andre Iguodala, who then drove the length of the floor, got fouled and made two free throws to make it a 79-78 game, the final score.

I thought Omer played a great game. He works really, really hard. Hes my teammate. I hate to see any of my teammates down, said Noah. "When one of is down were all down. We win together and we lose together. Its all of us.
