Game 7: Third quarter update
Posted By Paul Flannery On May 2, 2009 @ 10:12 pm In General | 1 Comment
After the Celtics  rolled at the end of the first half, you knew the Bulls  would come out with everything they had in the third. The Celtics were able to absorb the Bulls charge for the most part and take a 78-71 lead into the third quarter.
Things got a little heated as Rajon Rondo  was fouled hard twice. First by Joakim Noah  and then by Brad Miller  who topped it off with a little shove. Neither play was ruled a Flagrant foul. For his part, Rondo picked up a technical foul after a timeout.
The Bulls are shooting just 41 percent but are staying in the game at the free throw line where they made all 10 of their free throws in the quarter and are 23-for-27 for the game.
Heading into the fourth quarter, Kendrick Perkins  has four fouls. Rondo, Big Baby Davis and Brian Scalabrine  have three fouls. For the Bulls, Miller has four fouls. John Salmons  and Derrick Rose  each have three.
The question we have before us is simple. Will this be the last 12 minutes of this series or will be go to overtime for the fifth time?
