Chicago Bulls is currently 48-16 with two more games remaining on their schedule. They currently hold a ½ game lead over the San Antonio Spurs for the best record in the league. For starters, getting the best record after the regular season would give a team the home court advantage throughout the playoffs as long as they are able to move into the championship round. San Antonio has three more remaining games but they are currently on a seven-game winning streak, making it even more difficult for the Bulls to have a sigh of relief. If Chicagois able to maintain their current grip of the first spot, they would clinch home court for the second season in a row. Chicago Bulls tickets would definitely be selling like hot cakes once again when the team gets the home court advantage.
Bulls’ hold of the number one ranking in the standings for most of the season is quite an achievement for the team already especially with their superstar out for more than 20 games. Derrick Rose has already missed 24 games, the most of his career in a single season, due to various injuries such as in the toe, back, groin, ankle, and foot. Despite Rose being sidelined for almost half of the games of Chicago, the team has been able to stay atop the standings. The Bulls is truly an embodiment of the word “team” especially with how they handled the reigning MVP’s injury situations. Even though the team has been successful sans Rose, there is one glaring problem brought by it. Their offense is taking quite a hit.
Defense has been the staple of the Chicago Bulls ever since Tom Thibodeau took over the coaching duties. Bulls’ defense alone can already make the team win but it is still important for them to score the ball regularly and consistently. Their offensive numbers is in the bottom half in the league with their 96.3 points per game ranked 17th. According to a statistic of Elias Sports Bureau, Chicago is perfect in the past 28 games when they were able to score more than 100 points. This is the longest such streak in the whole National Basketball Association. The problem with this one, though, is that Chicago has made it to the century mark only twice this April.
One of the causes for the Bulls’ struggles with their offense this season is that Rose has been sidelined for a ton of games. Rose is the team’s leading scorer and the leader of the offense. With him out, Chicago is left with no one who can create his own shot. The likes of Richard Hamilton, Luol Deng, Carlos Boozer, Joakim Noah, and other Bulls players rely heavily on Rose setting up the offense. The team is able to cope up with the absence of Rose by rotating the ball until someone gets open but this technique has its flaws. To fix the offense, it is better for Chicago to take more shots instead of making too many passes.
