Four-Game Losing Streak
The Chicago Bulls have entered a season-long four-game losing streak following their loss to the Orlando Magic on Monday night. Following staying put at the trade deadline, the Bulls have dropped four games in a row. The Bulls continue to play mediocre, hoping that “continuity” sorts out the rosters issues.
Over the last four games, the Bulls have shot abysmally from distance. The current roster has shown an inability to knock down three-point shots consistently. An issue that went unaddressed at the trade deadline.
On top of the Bulls’ current woes, DeMar DeRozan has been diagnosed with a grade 1 thigh strain. DeRozan has stated that the issue has bothered him for over a month, but head coach Billy Donovan has stated that the injury is not significant. DeRozan has been ruled out for tonight’s game in Indiana, but his status for Thursday’s matchup against Milwaukee remains unknown.
The Pursuit of Russell Westbrook
Chicago Bulls head coach Billy Donovan has reportedly reached out to Westbrook to let him know that Chicago should be the place for him. NBA reporter Chris Haynes is unaware of the extent to which Donovan has contacted Westbrook, but he has sent the message to Russell that the Bulls are interested in signing him. Westbrook by no means would help the Bulls’ terrible three-point shooting but could provide the playmaking lost with the injury of Lonzo Ball.
