Live-Blog: Bulls Vs. Pistons, Game 5, Third Quarter.
This is the big quarter. So far... Historically, the good teams come out of halftime with adjustments that carry them to victory. Can't wait to see what they have come up with. More trapping? More zone? We haven't seen much of Noc, will he get in more or less? Thomas has played great, along with Thabo. Here we go!
10:06 left in the third. The Bulls have had alot of success fronting the post guy. That's it.
9:28 left in the third. With the paint closed, Detroit passionlessly hit their jumpers. Constant pressure.
7:36 left in the third. Billups just picked up his fourth foul. Hinrich took the charge. I take back what I said about flopping.
6:24 left in the third. More boards for Detroit. But Hinrich hits a three for a 75-64 lead!
5:41 left in the third. 'Sheed gets a tech and begs to get tossed. I love it when they go to commercial, they show the last good play the Pistons made. Jerks. They are losing by 11.
4:17 left in the third. Detroit is feeding Wallace the ball, but the fade away isn't falling. With Hinrich on the line and the Bulls up by 16, 'Sheed and Billups are on the bench. we could really extend this lead.
Holy crap!! As I wrote that last bit, with 3:21 to go, Thomas stuffs a Deng miss over a Pistons defender. YES!! That kid is a freak, I can't wait till he 'gets it.'
By the way, we are up by 18, in Detroit. Getting very interesting...
2:30 left in the third. Gordon strokes a three to put us up 21. I've become nervous about anything I type that might be bad luck. We are smoking them...
1:45 left in the third. Gordon is on fire. Another three!! 90-67 Bulls lead. My goodness...
1:00 left in the third. Tyrus Thomas is jumping over everyone. Another dunk-O-rama. Props to Skiles for just sitting Noc, who's clearly hurt, and playing Thomas. And props to Thomas for being a stud.
End of the third, the Bulls lead 92-71. I'm not gonna blog the fourth, I'll just write a recap.
Start thinking about what a Bulls win would mean.
