Twitter is one of the best websites to go to whenever there is an NBA game. The NBA world owns Twitter and when you follow the right people, a boring game can be turned into an entertaining one and an entertaining game can be turned into a super-duper entertaining game. There’s a lot of personalities on Twitter, if you don’t have one, I suggest you get one. The Twitter world is funny.
Here are some tweets that I liked that will help summarize how this game turned out….
@SherwoodStrauss: This Derrick Rose MVP ceremony has gotten Jamal Crawford roiling, ready to go Hakeem
@NdiiBaBii: Congrats to Derrick Rose, such a humble guy, very much so deserving!
@TheNoLookPass: I wanna see Derrick Rose and Kendrick Perkins do stand-up comedy.
1st Quarter Tweets:
@atlanta_hawks: Underway in Chicago. Hawks strike first with a Horford pull-up.
@jose3030: Every time I see Carlos Boozer’s bald head / beard combo, I get visibly mad
@HPbasketball: Hawks are a little quicker to opportunities on both ends so far, but not getting any points out of it.
@HPbasketball: Jeez, Hawks. Bulls are begging you to take a 10 point lead.
@fergoe: Holman: “Why are they still chanting ‘MVP?’ We get it, he won.”
@HPbasketball: Hawks: “PLEASE, BULLS, TAKE THIS GAME. WE HATE THIS GAME. TAKE IT!” Bulls: “Oh, we will. wait till you see what pull-up jumper we have!”
End of 1st. Hawks: 19 Bulls: 25
2nd Quarter Tweets:
@netw3rk: I’m surprised Larry Drew doesn’t have a nervous tic that appears whenever he talks about the shot selection
@HPbasketball: Another day, another fanbase who Zaza Pachulia has engendered hatred from.
@russbengtson: It appears that Carlos Boozer tripped over a bag in his house and suffered a bunch of terrible tattoos.
@NBAOnESPN: Bulls lead Hawks by 11 at the half. Rose has 16. Noah 12/8.
Halftime. Hawks: 37 Bulls: 48
3rd Quarter Tweets:
@TasMelas: As he’s known to do, Josh Smith has tossed the headband because he ain’t happy. Aaaaaand, he scores his first bucket.
@TheBillWalton: Why is “Pause Derrick Rose” trending? Do Atlanta fans expect they can stop this swift young man by mystical means and magical chants?
@NBAGuru: That J Smoove block and flush on the break was just plain awesome. The poor shot selection…not awesome.
End of 3rd Quarter. Hawks: 58 Bulls: 65
4th Quarter Tweets:
@HPbasketball: Great challenge on Horford by Gibson. Doing great work on Horford tonight.
@jemelehill: Jeff Teague is really playing well. He’s the only Hawk remotely interested in attacking.
@HPbasketball: Korver shoots like crap all night, then lands a ridiculous fadeaway. Guess the outlier play is back.
@Truth_About_It: Kirk Hinrich is friendly to all young players, leaving to give Jordan Crawford time, leaving to give Jeff Teague time….
@jose3030: Every time Josh Smith shoots an outside jumper, a baby seal gets clubbed to death
@TheNoLookPass: It hasn’t been real pretty… especially for the Hawks. But this is still a very doable game. Only down six now.
@jose3030: Another dead baby seal. This has GOT to stop
@fergoe: Still, this was a winnable game. Almost the exact same Game 2 they played in Orlando.
@TheNoLookPass: Mercifully, this game is over.
@swirsk054: Bulls tie up series 1-1 86-73
There you go. Series tied (1-1) as Bulls beat Hawks, 86 to 73.
