Team came out flat from tired legs.
Got abused on the boards.
Could not get enough stops.
Could not make buckets when they got stops.

Awful game all and all. We need Vuc and Caruso back. And a PF who can make an impact.

They did and they clearly didn't care. The exceeded expectations this year and took the night off. Not saying I love it, they haven't proved enough yet to do that but it is what it is. They can't play like they are GSW or Lakers and think they can take nights off. Yet I will excuse it too because you don't want burn out. If this keeps them fresh and they do play crazy hard they can take these once in a while. This was like every third game in the past so I forgive it. The first game they really laid an Eggs. They kinda did it with GSW too but that was more of maybe just taking a loss to take it. Can't go 100% all 82 so as long as they pick their spots its fine.

Hey. Don't get spoiled. It's a long season. It was just one of those games. It happens. Get ready for Houston. They'll learn from it.

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).

Schedule loss

Well crack these dudes in the head next time

For the record if it was inevitable we would split these 2 , def rather beat the knicks then lose to the Knicks and beat the pacers lol

Got 2 relatively easy ones coming up with Vucevic likely coming back

But I literally take nothing from this game it was 3 games in 4 nights going into the Portland game, then 1 day off and getting the Nuggets then coming back from the road 1 day off and a back to back at home. That was a brutal stretch. We came out of it top 3 in the east with a easier Schedule on the way couldn't ask for anything more.

Honestly I don't even think it was tired legs. They never tried. Thats why AC took the night off. Vuc might have been able to come back to, but this stretch is easier and they are resting for the next stretch IMHO. Just don't let it become a habit, because a 7 game series will not allow for games like this. I understand it though. Silly to burn ourselves out and everyone can stomach this loss. Just don't drop the next two but looking at this I expect a split almost before Miami. Can't overlook the weaker teams and just think you can turn it on. Good teams might take a night off here and there, but you can't take a bunch. You lose the groove and have to stay sharp. I'll take this one but I will scream to him heaven if they start coasting because they have over performed so far. This is a chip on the shoulder type team, have to keep the chip there. Anyway tonight was fine as was Portland. just keep this few and far between. We want to be healthy for the nest tough stretch and I get that.

Right. Heading into this b2b I was hoping for a split with the Knicks game being the win.

They play 5 games in the calendar week coming off the long trip. They go an entire month with our 2 consecutive off days. Insane
