The Chicago Bulls have lost 5 in a row and this team is almost unwatchable at points. The point of this season is to see the young players develop and to improve their games. With all the injuries that have taken place, it has been hard to see exactly what the Bulls have and how they all gel together.
The core 4 have played 7 games together this season and they have been victorious in one of them. Kris Dunn, Zach Lavine, Lauri Markkanen, and Wendell Carter Jr. have all the talent in the world, they just need to put it all together.
The Bulls are currently 10-31, which is halfway through the 82 game season and sitting in 13th place in the Eastern Conference. The next 5 games prove to be difficult as well. The Bulls will play Golden State, Utah, L.A Lakers, Denver, and closing it out with Miami. Four of those games are on the road and the Miami game is at home.
Playing and gelling together for this young team is very important and hopefully, this roster can remain healthy going through the 2nd half of this season. One thing is for sure, Jim Boylen needs to stick to a plan and decide whether or not he wants this team to play fast or slow it down. Hang in there, Bulls fans. 41 games left, let’s hope we see some improvement.
