Welcome to the NBA Playoffs, Marquis Teague

Take a look at the Chicago Bulls’ box scores from the first round of the NBA Playoffs. Riddled with injuries and plagued by illness, the Bulls somehow managed to put enough pieces together to close out the 7-game series against the Brooklyn Nets. The Bulls have navigated through the entire season without star point guard Derrick Rose, but it has been the other smaller injuries since the start of the playoffs that have provided the latest challenge.

Last night, a former Kentucky Wildcat got his chance to contribute to the Bulls’ effort. Marquis Teague, a reserve point guard for the Bulls who has seen limited action throughout most of the season, played in a series-high 14 minutes last night. When asked about his head coach’s decision to give him an expanded role last night, Teague replied, “I wasn’t surprised. Thins goes with whatever is working. He felt I was competing at a high level.” ¬†Teague finished with 4 points on 2-5 shooting from the field, 3 assists, 1 steal and 1 block.

Teague could see more minutes in the future as the Bulls take on the league favorite Miami Heat in the next best of 7 series. Starting point guard Kirk Hinrich is still questionable for Game 1 against the Heat. “Time will tell,” Hinrich said. “I’ve been doing everything I can but it (calf) isn’t ready yet.”

    Another kid that got paid to go to uahk. He should kiss his bro’s beanbag for Nike and Wes getting Jeff a new shoe deal right before Marquis committed to UK. Nice clean way to funnel money to a collge kid without getting into trouble. Jeff average 2 points per game when he got that new deal. I’m sure it was well deserved. Nothing to see here, move along.

    6) We won the title and didn’t have to have 7 nba players to do it. Cal is a pathetic joke of a coach.

    7. So I guess he sucked last year and ’96 when he took UMass to the FF. Have fun watching us raise #9 next year, you Crown Royal-sippin’ linebeard.

    7, and it took Pitino how long to win one at UL? Don’t forget, players like Behanan and Ware you got bc Cal wouldn’t let them commit. You’re welcome for the leftovers.

    Back to Teague; he will be next year’s Eric Bledsoe on that team as he gets ready to be D Rose’s understudy.

    I expect him to get 10-12 mpg next year and he just needs to be patient as he could be wanted by other teams any time. Houston needs a PG; The Lakers need a PG. Just keep working hard he’ll at least be an asset.
