The sky's not really falling, in fact, I predicted the Bulls would be underdogs on every game on this trip and that there were no easy games. They dropped the two easiest at least partially due to a flu virus that hit the whole team. Was Kirk Hinrich 100% tonight? Probably not, but it's not like a 3/14 night would be so rare for him even if he was and his 0-7 from the three point line didn't do much to help the team.
Derrick Rose played like Derrick Rose often plays, but people don't want to admit. He jacked up a crapload of shots to get his points. He really has little choice given that no one else on the team has a hope of creating their own shot, but you're getting a ton of inefficient offense from Rose who still can't draw fouls and can't shoot threes. Have I said it before? Yes. It's frustrating saying it all the time, but it's even more frustrating watching it.
Joakim Noah got his numbers, but he gave up more than he got on the inside tonight. Luol Deng had a decent statistical night without really impacting the game, but he did go 1/2 from the three point line to continue his run of 40% shooting from the three from a guy who's scared to shoot the three. Stop it.
Tyrus Thomas had a big night prior to fouling out maybe some of the west coast executives saw the game and will want to take a look, but I doubt it.
Otherwise, it's just another loss on the road to a lot more losses. The Bulls are going to end this road trip in a big hole and have to try to dig themselves out before the end of the season.
