It appears to be an intriguing strategy the Bulls have embraced, and once again on display Sunday in a 96-84 loss to the Miami Heat in which someone named Hassan Whiteside had 14 points, 13 rebounds and 12 blocks in just under 25 minutes off the bench.

That’s now Bulls losses to four teams recently who either will miss the …

There are certain accoutrements required for the Texas two step, like the plaid shirt, perhaps a bandana, cowboy boots and a big belt buckle. That sounds like the Bulls’ Jimmy Butler of good ‘ol Tomball, Texas.

One of the great teams in NBA history was the late 1980’s Los Angeles Lakers. When they won the NBA title in 1987, they gave up the 12th most points in the league. When they repeated in 1988, they gave up the 11th most points and were ninth in shooting defense.

Some months you look like a title contender, like December when the Bulls defeated the Trailblazers, Grizzlies, Raptors, Pelicans and Wizards.

And, hey, only six games left …

It was a difficult night Monday for the Bulls in the Retnec Detinu, where they lost 121-114 to the Orlando Magic, the fifth time this season the Bulls have lost at home to a losing team with now more than half their losses on the season to teams with records below .500.

It was the first game for Pau Gasol after he was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers in 2008. Gasol took a pass, spun and put the ball in smoothly. Kobe Bryant lit up. As he ran back on defense, he yelled to coach Phil Jackson, “We’ve got a big man.”
