The Bulls reached a new low Monday night by losing to the Washington Wizards. Seriously? First, they play like complete shit against the Pistons on Sunday. They had a 14-point lead and blew it to the Pistons. Rose hits a three to force overtime. They commit about five fouls; none of which were called and they end up winning. They make 21 turnovers in the game but still find a way to win against a 22-win team. Fine.
Let’s go to Monday against the 14-46 Wizards. Oh man. This is going to be tough. First, they get an 11-point lead in the 4th quarter in which, they promptly cough it up. They miss six free throws and commit 17 turnovers. They had quite a few in the last quarter that ultimately, sealed their fate.
I use to say, well, they beat up on the bums but they lose to teams like the Thunder, Sixers and Pacers. In just over 24 hours, they steal a game from the 22-win Pistons but end up being embarrassed by the now, 15-win Wizards. Also, the Heat won on Monday so the Bulls could still piss away the #1 seed but let’s be honest, what does it matter? The Bulls could very well be upset by the Knickerbockers or Sixers. How does anyone expect the Bulls to win a playoff series when they barely beat the Pistons and lose to the Wizards?
