Schedule Favors the Bulls
After a couple of tough losses at home to Orlando and Portland, the Bulls play Sacramento tonight, New York on Tuesday, then road games at Philadelphia, Atlanta, Orlando and Miami...with some significant time off in between games next week.
You want to take advantage of these games since the Bulls have not won more than two in a row all season. They really need to put together a streak of 4,5 or 6 games and they need Luol Deng to do that.
They are hoping to get through tonight and the Knicks game without Deng. If so, Luol will not have played in over a week, so that will give him time to respond to treatment for his injury.
