Why doesn't anyone post in this thread? I mean it is the Bulls after all
Great win today, loved the bellineli gamewinner.
It'll be interesting to see where we're at closer to the playoffs with the possible return of d-rose
Yeah, agree. If he does return (and that is an IF) i think he'll play limited time off the bench. Still, i like the way we've been tracking in his absence, carlos boozer has stepped up big time, if we keep to this standard how far can we go?
To think that we could win in Atlanta by 17 points on the second night of a back-to-back without Hinrich, Boozer and Noah (and obviously Rose) is incredible. Taj comes in and gets 19 and 19, Deng 25 and 14 and Butler continues his rapid development
We're only just past the half-way point of the year, games played wise. If Rose can get back any time soon (eg) After another let's say 10 games, and have 30 games leading into the playoffs, I don't see why we wouldn't still be having a crack at it this year. No-one is expecting a 100% Rose to come back, but we still hold, as we always did, a massive advantage over the team to beat Miami, being our size. Given that defensively we match up as well as anyone can against them, fully fit we're a show.
As for Mirotic, no chance next season, I think the one after is the hope, which would be 2014/15 and also leading into Boozer's final season - a perfect amnesty option. Or perhaps even a valuable expiring contract if it gets to that stage.
