The Magic Number

You'd think Detroit, of all places, would know all about the Big Three.

You can say what you'd like about Ty's big night and Peej's nice game, but this was all Kirk, Ben G. and Deng. Combined, they shot 24 of 44, and combined for 65 points. (Kirk only shot 40 percent, but dished out 13 dimes.)

It's pretty simple, really. If those three can play at this level (or close to it), the Bulls can make NBA history. If not, they won't. All the pressure's off at this point, and actually should be for the rest of this series, Game 7 or no. They weren't supposed to make it there, so they may as well have fun, shoot the fucking lights out and see just how tight them Pistons' buttholes can get.

UPDATE: My namesake seems to agree about the lack of pressure now

This gem from K.C. Johnson's recap . . .

"And they will [play] again on Thursday night at the United Center, pushing these Eastern Conference semifinals to a sixth game with a total team effort.

The Bulls received more contributions than a charity. Even Michael Sweetney cheered well."

That makes two of us.
