Latest Taj Gibson Items
Making a rare visit to the postseason, the Washington Wizards made it look rather easy, dispatching the Bulls in the opening round.
Carlos Boozer has played just two seconds after the third quarter in all four games this series, and his lack of production could force coach Tom Thibodeau to make a change.
Even with the team's "X-factor" suspended, the Washington Wizards had a No. 42 sitting next to the bench. The 57-year-old with graying hair couldn't box out or grab a rebound, but owner Ted Leonsis waved his red towel and egged on a cheering crowd that chanted "Free Nene!"
Taj Gibson's career night wasn't enough to prevent the Bulls from being one game away from elimination.
The Chicago Bulls played the role of spoiler on Friday, emerging with a 100-97 Game 3 victory over the Wizards in a game that, as was the case in the first two meetings, wasn't decided until the final minute.
It seemed logical that the Chicago Bulls, down 0-2 to the Washington Wizards, would change things up for Game 3. It's just surprising forward Taj Gibson provided a preview of those late-game fixes.
Trevor Booker kept the Wizards afloat when Nene injured his knee, and it was his defense on Taj Gibson that eliminated easy buckets late in Game 2.
If the Bulls are looking to make a change following their Game 1 loss, perhaps they should start with the rotation. Reserves Taj Gibson and D.J. Augustin require starter minutes.
Taj Gibson flashed back to the grueling workouts in the searing Southern California heat last summer.
