Fri, 8 Mar 2013|
Mark Schanowski and Kendall Gill break down the Bulls' late win over the Utah Jazz, saying sometimes it's better to be lucky than good - 3/8
You'll know our expert analysts the flying Illini great Kendall gill and the expert analysis of Carlos -- one -- finish out we got there about is that that's that's the way it happens latent yeah. Sometimes it is not does is better be -- they do and that's exactly what the Bulls were today I mean how do you explain. Shooting 37%. From the field for the game and they're winning a basketball game especially a playoff contending team is a big loss for Utah Jazz look. It was very interesting in the fourth quarter Tom Thibodeau are with a very unconventional lineup he would Marco Belinelli playing point guard Jimmy Butler at the two along with -- all -- Carlos Boozer and Joakim Noah. I think with that said is it in like the way the office was functioning with Nate Robinson at the point he took an unconventional method to try to win the game. Today did not think -- he's pretty much had it would made no way he runs the offense late. In basketball game you can see that -- league this combined related on the office of ensor has that hey let me try to got to the point guard. And fortunately enough for the Bulls and luckily luckily enough for the Bulls who worked out you know. And Nate Robinson one of four for thirteen from the field with four turn over so at the end decided to go with a bigger lineup. Utah does bring a lot of size that you particularly in the front court -- trouble handling that lets take a look at some of the key plays down the stretch he kind of went back and forth. He figured it was Marco Belinelli hit a couple of big shots here's the first four. You didn't. That was the -- of what about ready for 83 but they're a lot of work left to go on next game and there's always joke you know goes and gets the offensive interference and they'll call them. Good call I was actually in the film of this book. The thing about it -- -- what I like about the Bulls now that Marco Belinelli and things can step up in his. Because you see out Devils and they got right did not lose a guy you have to play because the -- -- from -- Marco Belinelli did a great job they wanted him in the starting lineup per game in a -- hitting point two points tonight. Giving twenty points and then knocking down 53 point shot right here. Very good for the Bulls big hit this wind because go to California now and now you have a little bit of momentum we hear possibly coming back on this. And look at the Bulls though were fortunate there because Gordon Hayward on the step back move had Belinelli beat but he stumbled coming out of this move yeah I kind of broke his ankle remove it and you've always buy them off by as well you know what. The thing about it is that the Bulls need to get this win especially coming off a loss to Indianapolis who lost. For the Spurs and now you come home I think -- you would have been devastating had they lost his game. And of course Marco Belinelli is the hero for making that clutch three point jumper but when you look at that play. The Huskies -- joking notre rundown on the offensive rebound taps about Jimmy Butler goes up strong to get possession in the kicks in -- Well all the intangibles the things that you don't see in the stat sheet that's would joking no it doesn't mean he's making your career on the yes. He's been playing great basketball by getting the rebounds scoring. Getting blocked shots but now you saw him make a play tonight. Weeks he did that it doesn't help -- -- got to look at him go out of bounds right there and I can't tell you how many tests we've seen him do that this -- fade ball. Valuable possessions when they borne out -- -- Joseph what his limits Mets limited somewhat peak. -- and foul trouble try to contain big Al Jefferson anyone know Joseph did with nine points thirteen rebounds he also had five fouls and the health Jefferson is a load. Jefferson some mouth as we sit in in the pregame show. He is the most underrated big men in my opinion. In the NBA he has all of the moves can step outside and -- you that's why don't you know that's so lets you know with. That's why he has so much trouble with -- everytime he plays -- You seem like got so you've -- the fat man move all along Larry Johnson play the best player I've ever played with wouldn't see me do you hope they. It's the other night and all right there not been caught -- What did they give also I think he -- still you know yes. Right here and follow through the wind -- to go to the free the give them a three piece chicken -- get it right here and there. But the thing about this guy so he might listen. In San Antonio and traded all my goodness it would have been over you guys a little thin the trophy. Down to San Antonio because they were gonna win the championship if there that Al Jefferson forward Tim Duncan Tony Carl Manu Ginobili. We're not Oklahoma City and I think -- beat the heat today I would been a fan you know an image you see where Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap wind up next season because both those guys are going to be free agents. Lot of teams with some cap room including the Atlanta Hawks the Dallas Mavericks those guys I would imagine we'll have new homes next season. You know then we should talk about is the player Nazr Mohammed he won and playing nineteen minutes nine point seven rebounds. Because of the size that Utah's affront not only in the starting lineup whether they bring in cancer and Derrick Favors offense. Tom Thibodeau decided to go. Big -- even play. Not the -- joking the other time right here you can play small ball on -- game because you start Jazz were not playing small at all at all their big guys. Coming off the big -- that thought did a great job than what I expected of them young had at the very good free season. I thought that he was going through the -- these type of minutes. Throughout the whole season but no it's good didn't step up -- -- opportunity so of course there really is capable player valuable. This is the beginning of the Pistons and things. The -- got a good game tonight was. Carlos Boozer played all those years in Utah with the Jazz tonight he had 22 points ten rebounds. He was especially effective early game those confused Paul Millsap a little bit by making quick decisions. Going hard today or anything like this team has got somewhere in there OK okay we haven't practiced with them every day of practice he knows who. Strength and weaknesses we'll Paul Millsap and just took advantage of those opportunities. In LA I think he should do this every day mark live in the lady had to move he has his skills that they get it done each and every night. Fortunately for the Bulls tonight and if you've got to go through.
