'Kings historic rally stuns Bulls,' By Sam Amick
'Brockman back in a big way,' By Sam Amick
CHICAGO - You know you thought this thing was over, too.
But you got the privilege of thinking that in your mind's eye, or saying it to your wife on the couch or your buddy at the bar. I, on the other hand, wrote it for all to see during the third-quarter recap of tonight's in-game blog.
'I'm sure the Kings' plane has already been fired up. They, however, have completely stalled out.'
One 35-point comeback later, I'm eating dark purple crow.
For what it's worth, I do remember hesitating in the slightest bit before hitting the 'Publish' button on that sentiment. But there was a game story to write and so I just went with it. I had the lede all picked out, something about how Andres Nocioni may have sat on the bench all night biting his nails but this was far from a nail-biter.
Safe to say there was some re-writing to do. Gavin Maloof, meanwhile, will surely be reliving this game in his head for some time to come.
The Kings co-owner made the flight to Chicago and I caught up with him as he was walking on air through the United Center tunnels. I've got to run and pack and we'll certainly cover this more tomorrow, but take note of one priceless thing in this video: watch for Vinny Del Negro.
The Bulls coach walks by en route to his postgame press conference and does his best to keep his frustrated face out of the shot.
