This episode previously aired on Dash Radio Thursday, April 27th, 2017, 6-7 a.m. and 11-12 p.m CT.
The guys are back with their reaction from Game 5 in Boston. A very winnable game turned so quickly into one that the Bulls should want to forget. Jordan and Matt discuss what was working for the Bulls early and why they trended away from that in the fourth quarter. Is Fred Hoiberg being out coached? Jordan seems to think so and he explains why.
The possibility of Rondo returning in this series is discussed. What changed the outlook of Rondo’s return? An update on Rondo’s injury status and why it will be extremely unlikely he returns in Game 6. How Isaiah Canaan was inherently asked to fill a role fluttered with expectations and how he fared in Game 5.
The guys talk about Dwyane Wade and his impact so far in this playoff. Wade had a boxscore sort of night but Matt and Jordan seem to think Wade has begun to hurt the Bulls late. How can the Bulls find a way to pull off a win at home on Friday? Will Fred continue to juggle lineups? Who will be the experiment to get legitimate playing time? Will Fred finally decide to let his lottery pick play?
All of this and so much more on The Debate-A-Bulls.
