If you didn't see the Bulls -vs- Celtics on Saturday you miss a good one. The point guards put on a show that you surely won't forget. "Shocked" is a good word to describe the feeling around Boston after Saturday afternoon's Game 1 loss in overtime to the Chicago Bulls. The defending champion Boston Celtics were supposed to take Game 1 in a wash, but that was far from the case.
The rookie, in his first Playoffs game, torched the Celtics for 36 points, 11 assists and four boards as the young Bulls ran past the defending champs 105-103 in overtime in Game 1 of a first-round series.
After watching what Rose did to the Celtics -- which was pretty much whatever he wanted -- it seems silly that there was even a debate last June as to who would go No. 1 overall in the NBA Draft, Rose or Michael Beasley. That's no knock on Beasley. But nofew rookies have had the kind of season Rose has had, and only one has had the kind of postseason debut Rose did.
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Wow this one may take a turn for the worst. Ouch Ouch. Not my Celtics.
