Wins and losses hold little significance in preseason games, what matters is the execution on both sides of the court, and the players learning their roles from game to game and building familiarity that can carry over into the regular season.
The Bulls had some nice takeaways from the first preseason game, with plenty of things to work on, so with a single off day in between, it will be interesting to see if quick progress is made between the two games.
Points to watch for in this preseason game:
1: Can Kyle Korver do it again? Korver played excellently, knocking down shots, coming off screens, and the Bulls ran lots of plays to get him looks to great success. After one game, I think it's fair to say Korver's happy with his decision to come here as he was quoted after the game as saying he couldn't remember the last time he had so many plays run for him.
2: Can the Bulls defend the paint? They struggled mightily with interior defense against the Bucks allowing all kinds of shots on the inside. They also struggled on the glass on both ends of the court, something you'd expect to be a strength of the Bulls, particularly with Bogut not playing. The Bulls rebounding simply needs to improve.
3: Will C.J. Watson rebound? He had a fairly horrific game one, but he plays much better than that. I expect to see a much better C.J. Watson this game.
4: Will we see the roster hopefuls get some minutes? Last game John Lucas was the only guy fighting for a roster spot to play any minutes at all, and that was about seven seconds after C.J. Watson fouled out. Is there any chance for Lucas, Powell, or Weaver to make the team? I'd think so, and they should start getting minutes soon if that's the case.
Other than that, I'll, of course, watch to see which players step up, play well, and try to get a feel for the offensive and defensive schemes used.
