That we can still move that much on one game tells us our ranks are still going to need a moderately larger sample before we can confidently say much of what this team is.
I just want to see the team back healthy, though must admit I think some have made too much of MCW's absence.
I think it's combination of missing both MCW and Doug for both offense and defense (where we struggled on both sides off the bench) and since our bench is very inconsistent with young guys, 2 of the better players playing could have been huge in a CLOSE game.
It is what it is I guess. There is no Bulls season without multiple injuries (I rather it be MCW and Doug than Butler or Wade).
As for this game, just don't let Young and Lou Williams go off and we win this game easily. Hopefully guys are not looking ahead to the matchup vs Cavs and ignore this game.
