Bulls Blow It....KG Possibly Out For The Playoffs!

By Sean Mackey

Last night's game was terrible. Chicago fell to the Toronto Raptors 109-98 I don't know who to hate more, the Bulls for not playing hard from the get go or Mike Brown for cowardly benching his starters out in Cleveland.

All I kept thinking about was that playoff changing, last game of the season 2 years ago against the New Jersey Nets where the Bulls fell and ruined their chances of advancing. Instead of a preferred playoff match up against the Orlando Magic, the Bulls now face the defending champion Boston Celtics in the first round.

The only bright speck of light for the Bulls today is the news coming out of Boston . Kevin Garnett was yanked out of practice early this morning by coach Doc Rivers after watching the big guy run down the court a few times. It is now presumed that he will probably miss the entire 2009 NBA playoffs. There has been a lot of speculation from insiders that this injury has been a lot more serious than the Celtics organization has lead on in the recent weeks. There's talk that KG is going to need surgery to repair his knee in the offseason.

If John Salmons can turn it on again, Boston has a reason to be scared.

Game 1 is Saturday at 12:30 p.m. on ESPN.
