Here is the "Skinny" the Bulls Brass wanted more players used in the Rotations and minutes cut off their top players and when the lead man doesn't get along with the brass and vice verse the lead man has to go and I get that. That Bulls "D" though has to get better if they want to compete on an Elite Level in the East and in the "Fight for Larry" 2K16.
Having said that the Bulls opened up in Win less Charlotte tonight and was stung repeatedly by either Hornets or Killer Bees or both as Queen City Hoops whips "See Red" 130-105. The only thing that saved the Bulls on this night was the Hornets simply ran out of time on the game clock or the whippin' would have been catastrophic!
Bulls were down 69-47 at the break as Charlotte cruised after that with a 25-point "W"! Seven Hornets were in double figures including former UConn Star and winner of a new three-year $21 million deal Jeremy "Silence of the Lambs" with a team-high 20. Nicolas Batum added 18 points and eight boards leading the starters!
Chicago just fell in that early hole 37-20 after one and never recovered. Jimmy Butler led Chicago with a game-high 26 points with Doug McDermott adding 17 off the Bulls Bench Mob. Bulls shot nearly 50% from the field and the arc but the problem was Buzz City shot 60% from the arc 51% from the field and 95% from the stripe. If Chicago doesn't play "D" and get back to the hard hat approach they will be middle of the road...period!
Hornets get win #1 of the 2K15-16 season as the Bulls fall to 3-2....
