Wizards Over Bulls – A Sweep in the Making

Posted on 23 Apr, 2014, by in NBA

The coaching staff for the Washington Wizards did an excellent job of scouting and analyzing the ways to beat the Chicago Bulls, coming up with a 101-99 win in overtime which wouldn’t have been possible if it wasn’t for Bradley Beal igniting in the fourth quarter with no one able to stop him, while Kirk Hinrich missed two free throws at the end of the game that could have given us a little bit more basketball instead of sending his team into a 2-0 hole.

Chicago Bulls – Derrick Rose Being the Barometer Without Even Playing

Posted on 6 Dec, 2013, by in NBA

There seems to be a connection between how the Chicago Bulls do during a season and the optimism coming from Derrick Rose regarding his comeback chances. Last season, when it seemed he’d be coming back early, the Bulls went on a run that got them pretty near the lead in the East. Now that Rose is announcing he might be back for the playoffs, we’re suddenly getting the best from his team once more, beating the Miami Heat by 20 points. More

Some might argue that without Nate Robinson, the Chicago Bulls don’t make it out of their first round series against the Brooklyn Nets.

The Brooklyn Nets have now won in Chicago, forcing the Bulls to travel back to New York and play in a game 7, hoping that Hinrich will be healthy by that time. More
