BULLS SLEEPWALK TO LOSS
Wow. I didn’t see the whole game but who would’ve thought that the Bulls would be getting beat by being outhustled. The Cavs had their way with them early and often.
At one point Steve Kerr said “Scott Skiles is furious right now.” He motioned for Malik Allen to come off the bench. Kerr pointed out that the Bulls were just letting the Cavs get to the basket too easily.
As I said, I did not watch the whole game. But from what I saw, Ben Wallace seemed content to let guys get position on him in the paint. And when Kerr commented that Skiles was furious, it had to be about Wallace. He had just let a Cav–I’m pretty sure Varejao–get deep in the paint without any resistance and then get an easy hoop to top it off. Wallace went to the bench and Allen came in.
Let’s hope that’s a blip on the screen. The Bulls play at home against the Pacers and then head for a lengthy road trip that includes games with Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, Lakers, Denver, Philly and New York.
I understand teams with many new players take time to get it together. But lack of effort or energy? That’s unacceptable.
