|November 3rd: Magic 96, Bulls 93|
Derrick Rose is so talented that he can, with some help from his backcourt-mate Ben Gordon, cover up for Bulls coach Vinny Del Negro's baffling personnel moves. Andres Nocioni is not a viable NBA center, but the Bulls win with him there anyway.
Del Negro will not outcoach Stan Van Gundy. It'll come down to execution. The Magic have been spotty in that area lately, notably for the final quarter against Detroit. Get the ball inside to Dwight, because the Bulls have nobody down low. I need not even append that statement with, "who can stop Dwight." The Bulls quite literally do not have a polished post player, and haven't since... um... ever? Marcin Gortat could start for them.
Tip's at 2 PM so everyone will be home in time to celebrate the new year. Let's end the 2008 calendar year with a bang, just like we did last year. Get a hand in Gordon's face, and go Magic.
