BULLS PROJECTED STARTERS
It hasn’t been announced officially yet, and I’m not sure about why there is drama surrounding this, but I’m assuming the MVP will again rest. Hoping to see him on the bench, however he might prove to be a distraction for teammates. I’m actually worried with Taj being out for this one. Tyrus is athletic and can bother Booz. I’d like to be able to go to Taj for some offensive/defensive matchups at the 4. Maybe we see Deng and Jimmy on the floor together? Hey we need all hands on deck here. Thibs is going to have to unleash Jimmy, he’s a gamer and he stays ready to play.
Augustin and Kemba will have to be well defended. Their stats don’t show it, but they can both hit big shots. Henderson is also someone who can get hot. They’ve got 6 guys averaging double figures… We’ve got five and CAN be anemic offensively, so Bulls definitely need to defend the perimeter.
Look for the Bulls to do better defensively tonight. Thibs was none too happy about Bulls giving up close to 100 pts. to Phoenix the other night. Also, Bobcats are hungry for a win, and always play the Bulls tough. Let’s watch out for the trap game. Gotta keep the win train rolling…
I’ll be in-game tweeting from @ChiTwnBullsBlog so follow me for updates! Take care, let’s go get this win and LET’S GO!!!!!
Note: A win tonight surely keeps us atop the NBA Power Rankings lists, regardless of what happens tonight between Miami and Philly.
