Bulls bounce the T-Wolves



















Last night Kevin Love had to of said to himself, why did I even bother coming back for this game.  I don't doubt the toughness and true grit of the league leader in rebounding, but you almost feel sorry for him and the Minnesota Timberwolves who boast a losing record of 17-58.  The Chicago Bulls didn't have any sympathy, they went ahead and smacked the T-Wolves 108-91 last night.  In his first game back from a strained groin Love was able to muster a meager 16 points and nine rebounds against the seething Bulls.  I can only imagine the nasty mood the Bulls were in after the beating they took Monday night against the Philadelphia 76ers.  Bulls center Joakim Noah sprained his ankle in that game and was a game time decision against the Wolves.  The Bulls didn't need him because from start to finish Chicago just man-handled the T-Wolves. 





















With good ball movement the Bulls created a lot of open shots and ended up shooting 50 percent for the game.  Carlos Boozer led the Bulls attack with 24-points 14 rebounds and four assists.  In the rare occassion of being outshined by another teammate Derrick Rose finished the night with 23 points and 10 assists.  Kurt Thomas who started in place of Noah finished with six points and eight rebounds.  I told you Noah could afford a rest, he didn't have to force himself back.   One thing for sure Kevin Love is very envious of this Bulls team.

“They’re all on the same page, everybody,” Love said. “When they break from the huddle, everybody’s in. You can tell everybody has the utmost respect for each other and they’re all in it to win it. In that regard, I envy that. I salivate for that. I like that a lot.”

Hey Kevin if you get tired of your current situation you are always welcome to don the "Red and Black" (Just kidding).  So far the Chicago Bulls are fine just the way they are.  Night in and night out they have proven that.  You can only envision great things when a team is on the same page like that, so will see where that strong belief in each other takes them.  Hopefully it takes them to a championship....nuff said

Bulls and Pistons Friday night......
