Chicago Bulls need to get a productive effort from both point guards. Michael Carter Williams and Jerian Grant combined for 16 points on 6/25 shooting (24%), with 7 assists and 9 turnovers in 69 total minutes in the series. Grant and MCW were both awful in game 3. If Grant and MCW have another bad game then the Bulls should consider putting rookie Denzel Valentine in the game. Bulls are a way better team when they let Jimmy Butler be the primary ball handler.
Jimmy Butler needs to have a bounce back game. Butler had a horrible game offensively in Game 3, hitting 7-of-21 shots and failing to shoot a single free throw. Jimmy is much better when he tries to score points in transition or driving to the basket. If your shot is not falling than drive to the rim and get contact and easy baskets. I expect a big game from Jimmy Butler.
Game 4 is a must win game for the Bulls. If they can win game 4 and get this series up to a 3-1 lead, they will force the Celtics into a deficit that few teams in history have recovered from. Only 11 teams out of 234 have come back from a 3-1 deficit. Don’t let this team have any momentum. We can do this. Go Bulls!
