Whoa buddy. You better slow down there Joakim. The way things have been going for Chicago lately, guaranteeing a win is the last thing he should be doing. The Bulls at one point were up 3-1 in the 7 game series, but after last nights loss to Brooklyn, it is now tied 3-3 and headed back to BK for the deciding game. There are no guarantees in sports, especially in the playoffs, but you have to admire his confidence. Check out what he said after the jump.


According to CSN Chicago:

Noah was quoted after the loss last night. “I’m ready to play. I’m ready to play right now. That’s my emotions,” Noah said in a serious tone. “We’re a team of fighters. We keep getting punched in the face, but we fight back. I’m proud of this team and we’re going to go into a hostile environment in Brooklyn, and we’re going to win.

Only problem for Noah is it seems the Bulls can’t catch a break lately. Despite missing Derrick Rose all season, Luol Deng wound up in the emergency room earlier today. Kirk Hinrich is battling an injury, and the rest of the team seems to be having symptoms associated with the flu. Chicago is gonna need some things to finally fall their way if they want to leave Brooklyn with a win.
