Bulls @ Rockets 7pm

Bulls just got their ass kicked. They play an awful Rockets team tonight. I assume they will right the ship.

Keys to a Bulls victory IMO are:

1) Make our 3's at 36%+
2) Win the RB battle
3) Limit our TO's to below 14

After last game the keys to the game are best said by Scott Skiles “jump”. Just effort and showing up, which they clearly didn’t do.

Side story, had an event at a Cubs game the year after the won the series. It was the game before the all-star break and Maddon gave the team the day off. They gave up 10 runs in the first. The Cubs weren’t playing really at all. That was a worse effort than I saw on Monday, but not by much lol. I can forgive Monday for sure it made enough sense but if they overlook the Rockets and Magic imma going to get more than a bit worried.

Well, that and Houston isn't capable of matching Indy's best, which we saw on Monday. If the Pacers always played that well, they would be Eastern contenders.

Because life is ultimately just a series of pointless exercises followed by death so why bother.

Indy looked their best because they needed a win and the Bulls offered no resistance too, it yes Houston at their very best can’t look as good as Indy for sure.

If you show up to the game thinking it’s a cake walk, you’ll find yourself in a battle. Hopefully the Bulls haven’t lost the chip on their shoulder.

Look forward to seeing Green and Sengun. Think that combo have all star duo potential in a couple years.

Houston is on a 15 game losing streak. If Chicago loses this, I would seriously question their status as a contender.

Hope the Bulls are motivated, otherwise could be a trap game. Houston may be the worst team in the NBA right now, but these are all NBA level players.

Nba teams are still nba teams. Can't look at their record and feel like we can just walk in there and win without effort. Stomp these dudes out early let them know this will just be another loss on their road to getting a top pick in the draft but you can't let a couple guys get hot or get shown up by their rookie.

I still expect us to win going away but it's any given Sunday where just a 10 3pt game from Gordon could mean a win for them and we all over the news for the wrong reason. Dont take them lightly don't take anyone lightly

We probably aren’t a contender. Lower your expectations and enjoy the improvement.

No matter who is on the court, let's get a convincing win. Maybe White plays really well again in a lower-pressure game.

Bulls want to be taken seriously. They need to blow out the bad teams.
