Not surprised. Bulls just don't have enough 3pt shooters. No one is making a 3pt shot other than Lavine and they are zoning him every single time. If Lonzo and Coby and others won't take and make those 3pt shots then they will pack the paint and play zone all game long.

On the other end, their 3pt shots are falling which is making their bigs game so much easier and plus ton on offensive rebound opportunities and then cutting game. EVERYTHING is working for Indiana Pacers and we are missing Vuc on the offensive end and Caruso on the defensive end.

We are the kind of team where we are a damn good team if all of our key guys (top 5) are playing. Others are interchaneable (like DJJ, Green, TBJ, Coby etc).

i don’t know if you noticed but they’re kicking our ass dude


Eh. I think our lack of energy is playing a bigger part in why we're losing. It's one thing to hype up brogdon, or sabonis, but holiday?

Like I said, you cant really take anything away from this game. Its going to look bad because nothing is going and we have no legs. A schedule loss. Just get healthy and look to the next game.

Billy should go deep bench tonight. If Marko and Dotson are dressed, throw them out there. These are the type of games where they get some burn.

Need Vooch back in the worst way. He’ll tremendously help with size, spacing, ball movement, and being that third scorer.

For the top defensive team and top team in the standings, Bulls are the only team that gets one of the lowest foul calls go in their favor.

Let’s be honest , this team been hard to watch lately .

They ‘ve been grinding a lot , been on the zach / Demar bailout plan .

They finally got sleep walking . It’s ok I ain’t even mad . This team might give me an aneurysm , it’s been fun winning , not watching .

Even Zach going Saiyen is great but I feel coach don’t capitalize , he had to go crazy just to close out a win etc

Gonna take a miracle for the Bulls to come back and win this down 20 with the tired legs and missing Vuc/Caruso.

Our defense without Caruso is…not so good.

Great game plan by Pacers though. Without Vuc we have no hub in the middle against a zone and PNRs are less effective, so it just turns into iso ball with Zach and Demar.

If the FO is serious about making a run in the playoffs, we clearly need one more rotation caliber big.

Wtf is this post

Many of us saw this loss coming. If you’re going to exaggerate like this with such ludicrous claims that this team isn’t fun to watch then pick another team

Dude half the time nobody knows what this team is doing ? Basically we just figured out we are playing DJj at the 5 etc.

It’s hard for me to watch . If you like helter skelter no identity basketball that’s on you .

No the team from the last 5 years was hard to watch. Even the best teams in this league struggle from time to time, not many teams win every game in blowout fashion.

If you expect any team to be like that, you are going to he waiting a long time.

You do understand that we lost our staring PF and C right?

Bulls are playing small ball but not doing anything that makes small ball successful. No tempo, no fast breaks, no drive and kicks.
