Grading the Bulls: Mike Dunleavy

Grading the Bulls: Mike Dunleavy
Last grading: Taj Gibson Offense When Mike was signed two years ago, his offensive role was simple. Shoot the long-ball, and handle the ball more than Kyle Korver.

What's the plan for Game 2?

What's the plan for Game 2?
You can look at Chicago’s Game 1 in two different ways. One being the Bulls coming through and getting the job done, which they did.
