After running all over the Miami Heat this past Thursday, the Bulls seamed to struggle a lot against the Detroit Pistons.
The Bulls lost to the Pistons with a score of 92-75 on Saturday night at the United Center in Chicago.
Brandon Jennings had a big night for the Pistons in scoring 33 points and dishing out five assists. Taj Gibson, starting at the small forward spot in place of Luol Deng, scored 21 points and 10 rebounds, but it wasn’t enough for a Bulls squad that had a hard time scoring all night.
Expect more nights like this for the Bulls. Without Derrick Rose, Jimmy Butler and Deng out, The team is going to have problems putting points on the board. There just aren’t a lot of options for the Bulls, especially when Carlos Boozer and Kirk Hinrich play as poorly as they did. With all the injuries the Bulls have sustained this season,the group must play solid defense and run crisp offensive sets in order to win games this year. They didn’t do either of those things during large chunks of Saturday’s contest.
Here are the highlights to the game Saturday
