Only thing exciting about this game was seeing Derrick Rose on the bench. Thibs also surprisingly mixed up the rotation and we got to see more Nazr, Teague and Radmanovich. They kept the Bulls in it, but George Hill had a great night offensively and West is tough to stop, even with Taj. Kirk managed to miss another game with injury. This time a sore foot. He’s similar to Rip, just an older body that can’t take the rigors of an NBA season. Spare parts. Check out ESPN’s recap.
Overall, Bulls doing as well as can be expected. They bounced back after the Cavs loss with wins over Philly and Brooklyn. Pacers just have too many weapons and Chicago is so limited offensively that Bulls are now pretty easy to defend.
Bulls in San Antonio on Wednesday. The Spurs lost Tony Parker for 4 weeks, but they are so solid that they should still do ok. May be questionable against teams with elite point guards, but they can hurt you in different ways so we’ll see.
Take care til’ next time Bulls fans. –ct
