When was the last time you were this excited about a preseason game? Derrick Rose is back, the Bulls are back, and they're ready for a big season. Joakim Noah missed the game which isn't the best sign for the start of the preseason but probably isn't worth worrying over...
There's been a lot of talk about how much tougher the East is and where the Bulls will sit in it. I think only a complete homer puts Chicago ahead of Miami, but after that it's fairly close. I'm taking Chicago over Brooklyn, Indiana, and New York though...
The Indiana Pacers will battle the Heat tonight in a game seven. Anyone remember the Bulls playing the Pacers in a game seven? Were you worried at all that Chicago might lose that game? I expect Heat fans will (rightly) feel similarly tonight...
The Atlanta Hawks controlled their own destiny. Two wins, and they had fifth. However, if they're really aiming for sixth they still control their own destiny since two losses puts them in sixth regardless of what Chicago does. The Hawks appeared to throw their game against Toronto as they played with minimal energy, rested Horford, and barely played their starters...
The Chicago Bulls beat the Orlando Magic last night keeping alive their slim hopes for a fifth seeded matchup against a Nets team they've beaten with the D-League portion of their roster...
The Chicago Bulls have fallen to sixth and are a game back of Atlanta with two to play. The Hawks play a Raptors team that's playing like it gives a crap followed by a Knicks team that will likely be in full rest mode. If the Bulls are to have a chance at passing Atlanta, it's likely because Atlanta blows it to the Raptors followed by the Bulls winning out...
The Bulls aren't going to finish 2nd or third in the conference this season. Barring an epic collapse, they also won't finish seventh or eighth as they have two games and the tie breaker on a Boston team that's struggling to win games not to mention a soft schedule remaining and Milwaukee's all but eliminated from catching them. They're squarely in the 4-6 slot in the bracket which gives them four potential playoff matchups...
Carlos Boozer returned for the Bulls, but Chicago couldn't find enough defense to slow the Pacers down and ran out of gas offensively. In a game closer than the score due to Chicago keeping up the fouling game well past when it had a chance to work, Chicago fell to Indiana in one of the more home-cooked refereed games I've seen in awhile...
The Chicago Bulls will head into Indiana with a one game lead over the Pacers for the division crown. They'll try and build onto that lead without Joakim Noah and Kirk Hinrich while Carlos Boozer is a game time decision...
What can we say about that Rockets loss? At least it was fun watching Nate Robinson single handedly try to bring the Bulls back from a 30 point deficit and do an admirable job of at least providing a glimmer of hope in the game. That said, the Bulls were simply crushed due to a defense that let them down for once...
