Bulls Open Season On High Note in 92-85 Victory Over Spurs

I was wondering if the Bulls would be able to keep with the Spurs in this game and it was good to see the team answer the bell on opening night. The Spurs usually give the Bulls along with most teams in the league matchup problems with their big three of Duncan, Parker and Ginobli. However, only Duncan and Ginobli would score in double figures for the Spurs as the Bulls managed to other Spurs players in check.

While the victory was impressive, Chicago fans have to remember that it's only one game and that another tough opponent awaits them tonight in the Boston Celtics. As everyone knows, these two teams put on an epic battle in last year's playoffs that went to seven games. What we may not remember is that defensive anchor Kevin Garnett was missing and the Celtics at full strength for the most part. With the addition of Rasheed Wallace, the Celtics now have another player than can spread the defenses and now allow teams to focus on Garnett, Pierce and Allen.

I hate to be a realist here but I'm not sure if the Bulls will be able to keep up with the Celtics or not at this point in the season. The Celtics are coming off impressive wins against the Cavaliers in Cleveland (where they hadn't won since 2004), and holding the Bobcats to a franchise low scoring output of 59 points. The Bulls will really have to bring their "A" game if they hope to show Boston that last year's playoff meeting was not an aberration.
