Morning Box Score: Bulls Win Streak Snapped
All good things must come to an end, up to and including Bulls win streaks. Here's your morning box score:
The Bulls were without Derrick Rose, and the Celtics were without Rajon Rondo. So who amongst the shorthanded teams emerged victorious? Yeah, you already know the answer to that. Despite an admirable fourth quarter rally which had the Bulls almost erasing a double-digit to come within two, Chicago just couldn't pull off the win. What went wrong? As coach Tom Thibodeau told Sam Smith, "Our ball pressure wasn’t great, our defensive transition wasn’t great, our rebounding wasn’t great. So there’s a lot we can correct.” Here's hoping they do. The Bulls take on old rivals the Detroit Pistons tomorrow.
