I don't even think it's a bold statement to say the Warriors are clearly better than the Bulls. It's not to say the Bulls can't improve, or that they're not surpassing most people's expectations, or that they're not fun to watch. Sometimes you run into a better team. There's been few NBA champions that have gotten wrecked like this even one game during a title run. The Bulls already have been blown out twice- even in their own building.

We as Bulls fans shouldn't be used to this. The only way this team even gets to the Finals is if injuries to the true top teams in the conference have depleted rosters.
Not that I disagree with you concerning the Warriors, and that the Bulls are unlikely to win a championship this year, but NBA champions absolutely get wrecked like this during the regular season in their title runs..Including the best team in history.

This. It’s not about whether or not the warriors are better than the bulls(they are), it’s the notion that because team A beats team B by X amount or more, they are somehow the clearly better team every time. That’s just bullshit

Likely a 4th straight L
Yep I'm ready for it.

Zach, Ball, Caruso, Green, Jones Jr, Cook all out.

Grizzlies are one of the hottest teams in the NBA right now.

Mentally prepared to take another L, but maybe we'll be pleasantly surprised

Wouldn't they put Ayo on him?
I guess since both Coby and Ayo now have to start, you’re probably right. I think my mind is trying to deal with this trauma by blocking things like that out or something

Or maybe it’s because I have to go to downtown Memphis for the game, one of those(all apparently)southern cities that doesn’t measure up to Cleveland lol

I don't really think it matters who guards Ja, though Ball would be better.. Ayo will get a learning lesson today. I imagine if Ayo has any effectiveness, they'd start to force switching so Coby is on Ja then.

For sure…ball with his size and length would at least give Ja less vision on the court, and would fight through those screens better.

I imagine Ayo goes to the bench with two fouls around the 8:21 mark of the first quarter lol

I’d go as far to say that Ayo is the best player on the team getting around screens. Well, Caruso is probably the best but Ayo is damned good.

Either way, Ja is going to get his no matter what.

Ayo gets called for fouls when he does it tho…gets that rookie 2nd rounder treatment lol
