Hoiberg Pulling a Familiar Move

Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg must be watching Grizzlies coach David Fizdale. He criticized the refs and is hoping things will change for game 5.

“Let me say this, Isaiah Thomas is a hell of a player,” Hoiberg said. “An unbelievable competitor — he’s a warrior, everything he’s going through right now. He had a hell of a game tonight. But when you’re allowed to discontinue your dribble on every possession, he is impossible to guard.”

This is a notice to ref’s that Thomas carries (in Hoiberg’s opinion) and this is something that will be called against Thomas in game five. The players have already reacted positively to his comments which mean that the Bulls will go all out in game five.

The Bulls are not the better team but after two straight wins by the Celtics, this line is inflated. Also refs will call Thomas for the carry which will take him off his game. The end result will be a very close game and that is why the Bulls are the best bet in this game.
