Last call for beer here at the UC. So unfair.
Bulls seem to be on the cusp of one of their patented "we really want to score but aren't sure how" stretches.
21,752 is the official attendance at tonight's game. The United Center has had its moments but my goodness is it down on itself (errr...the Bulls) right now. Down 8 with 3:53 to play in the 3rd. What needs to happen here?
61-52 at the end of 3. We're heading into the 4th quarter, which could potentially be the Bulls' last one if they don't go on a gigantic tear.
Aaaaaaand Twitter explodes (monitoring #Bulls) after Gibson goes down, is helped off the court and into the locker room. A lot of "season's over" as I scroll through. Hmm....
Hinrich with a gigantic 3 to cut it to 3. And then who else? John Wall with a big 3 of his own. Wizards lead back to 6.
Noah has 15 rebounds. FIFTEEN. And Boozer has 9. Everyone else? Nowhere close.
Offensive rebound after offensive rebound after offensive rebound. But Wizards don't take advantage. 1 minute to play. Bulls down 3. Here we go.
16.2 seconds to go, Wizards up 3. Free throws coming for Andre Miller.
So the Bulls needed the Wizards to miss two free throws. And it happened. And they didn't get the rebound. WHAT THE HELL?!
Well, that will just about do it, folks.
Bulls down 6 with 7.8 seconds to play. Timeout Chicago.
Game over. Bulls lose and are eliminated from the 2014 NBA Playoffs, eliminated in 5 games to the Washington Wizards.
Postgame videos from the locker room coming from me and my partner-in-Basketball-crime Chris Sosa. Stay tuned, if you're into that sorta thing.
