Bulls Beat Pacers 113-107

bullsbeatpacers.jpgSo much for the days when the Bulls would play tough defense and grind out victories....now it seems they have no defense and....well, they still grind out victories. Anyways, a couple of interesting notes from this game against the Pacers. Before the season I predicted the Pacers would win 25 games and it looked like they were going to get there easily after the first 30 games, or so. Well...now they have 22 wins and, god damnit someone just microwaved something absolutely atrocious and its stinking up my office, fuck. Ok, I'm back, sorry about that, the Pacers will be lucky to get to 25 wins. Next, Pacers forward Shawne Williams had to leave at halftime last night....because of a murder investigation. Nice job Pacers. Third, Kirk Hinrich was benched less than a minute into the second half because of poor play. That's kind of ridiculous. I understand that Bulls coach Jim Boylan wants his players to 'earn' or 'compete' for their minutes, but I think Hinrich has earned a little bit longer of a leash on his mistakes. Fourth, Larry Hughes will not stay hot for too much longer. Prepare for the worst. Finally, it's time to move Drew Gooden (10 points, 15 rebounds) into the starting lineup and move Tyrus Thomas back to the bench. It's not a knock on Tyrus, as he should be the first big man off the bench, but Gooden is playing very well right now.

The Bulls continue their 'quest' to make the playoffs tomorrow night as they face the Gilbert Arenas-less Wizards in Chicago.

Call me crazy, but the more I think about the Larry Hughes trade, the more I like it for Chicago. Ben Wallace and Joe Smith were holding back the young Chicago big men, while Larry Hughes helps increase the height of that short backcourt. And Larry has to be rabidly hungry right now to prove he's not washed up. I kind of worry about Drew's influence on the young big men, though--he never seemed to be a good role model to me.

The problem with Hughes is that the Bulls seemingly are committed to the development of Thabo Sefolosha...on top of the fact that he's extremely streaky.
