If they were worth more, the Clippers might be the best team in the NBA. Unfortunately for them, they aren't. The Bulls went down by seven in the first 1:30, but were + 20 for the other 46:30...

Santa wears red. Perhaps that's why Bulls fans got a parting gift from the officials when they didn't call a travel on Luol Deng at the end of the game when he jumped, clearly landed, and passed the ball away a moment too late...

A Christmas day game. Just one more reminder of how the Bulls fortunes have risen. Somehow, despite the national hype of the big national game and tip off of the season, it still managed to sneak up on me...
