In case you missed it, here's what the TNT crew had to say about the Bulls during Thursday night's telecast of their 89-80 win over the Celtics at the United Center:

Kenny Smith: "[The Bulls] have the "it" factor. Everybody is playing at a championship level."

Charles Barkley: "Even when Derrick Rose is out [of the lineup], they are not going to get blown out because they have depth and they're the best defensive team in the league right now. They are playing championship defense."

Reggie Miller: "They are still winning games with their MVP [Derrick Rose] on the bench. That shows the depth and camaraderie of this team."

Barkley on why the Bulls are so good: "[The Bulls] play the best team defense and [Head] Coach Thibodeau holds his players accountable."

Celtics guard Rajon Rondo on playing the Bulls without Derrick Rose: "I try to stay aggressive offensively against [C.J.] Watson. He's one of the best backups [point guards] in the league. I have a lot of respect for him. It's not a night off."
