Bulls vs. Pistons recap: lack of a defensive substitution dooms Chicago in final minute

Bulls vs. Pistons recap: lack of a defensive substitution dooms Chicago in final minute

Could’ve been a stolen win The Bulls used 100 possessions Saturday night against the Detroit Pistons. Only one mattered. As good as Zach LaVine’s game-tying three-pointer was, the outcome of the next possession ultimately determined the game. We knew the defense would be bad. It was always going to cost the Bulls games. That proved true in a 118-116 loss to the Pistons. The Final Possession Isolating a single possession and using it as the sole reason a game was lost can be misleading. But in this instance, in the dying moments of a tied game with shot and game clocks virtually...

Chicago Bulls fall short despite Zach Lavine’s brilliance

Bulls vs. Pistons game preview, lineups, start time: Opening at Home

The Bulls look to bounce back against Detroit at the United Center Thursday’s season opener showed us signs of things to come for this Chicago Bulls team. On one hand, Bobby Portis and Zach LaVine had outstanding offensive performances, resulting in a 41 point first quarter. But on the contrary, their defense looked like how we thought they would on their way to a 127-208 loss. Without Kris Dunn, the Bulls were shorthanded on defense and it showed. And unfortunately Dunn is out again tonight (with Cameron Payne remaining the starter), but at least the opponent is a bit less scary in the...

At least Zach LaVine’s scoring powers carried over from preseason

At least Zach LaVine’s scoring powers carried over from preseason

LaVine is by far the Bulls best player Zach LaVine probably isn’t going to drop 30 points on a nightly basis. But through five preseason games and now one game that actually counted, the fifth-year guard has established himself as the Bulls go-to scorer and best player, already showing major improvements from last season when the recovery from an ACL tear routinely hampered his performances. “A year after tearing my ACL I feel like I’m back to myself – athletically, speed-wise, quickness,” LaVine said via NBC Sports Chicago. “I’ve got my legs under me. I just needed y’all...

Cash Considerations Podcast: Bulls Opening Night

It sucked! The Bulls were really fun to start their season opener against the Sixers, then they got absolutely waxed after the first quarter. Jay and Ricky discuss both the good and bad (mostly bad) of the opener, and they ponder whether Cam Payne is the worst NBA player in their lifetime. Zach LaVine and Bobby Portis get some love, while Jabari Parker gets taken to the woodshed after a rough official Bulls debut. Plus a brief look ahead at the upcoming schedule. We promise we will be on iTunes and hopefully other outlets soon.

Zach LaVine was a weapon in Charlotte, but the Bulls defense kept shooting themselves in the foot

another poor showing for the Bulls It was more of the same on Monday as the Bulls continued to show little to no resistance on the defensive side of the ball in a 110-104 loss to the Charlotte Hornets. The Hornets lead shrunk during garbage time, but this one was never close when it mattered. Isolating poor defenders and exposing their weaknesses for easy points, the Hornets led by as many as 23 points deep in the third quarter. We knew defense was going to be a problem after the roster was assembled, and it’s proving to be true with each passing game. After giving up 116 points in both...
