Last week reports ran that Bulls Coach Tom Thibodeau could be coaching his last season in Chicago. Now, as D. Rose and the Bulls are deep in their battle with the Cavaliers, could a trip to the Eastern Finals secure Thibodeau’s job?
The Bulls season is on the line Thursday night down 3-2 against LeBron James and the Cavs, I think there is one man that is able to keep the Chicago Bulls ball rolling alone with keeping Coach Thibodeau’s job secured, Derrick Rose. Just 15 games back since his return from his thrid knee surgry, Rose has given strength to this series and single handly kept the Bulls in contention to win and advance to the next round. Rose is averaging 25 points, 6.5 assists and 5 rebounds while shooting 42 percent from behind the arch. His game winner in Game 4 even the series at 2 games a piece. But, in the Game 5 LeBron shifted the momentune to the Cavs as he also hit a shot to give the Cavs a 3-2 lead in the series.
I believe the Bulls will win Game 6 and force the series back to Cleveland. Although the Bulls fight and claw with passion, the toughness of LeBron and his guys will advance the Cavaliers to the next round of the Eastern Conference Finals.
