Studs and Duds from the Chicago Bulls' 1st Slate of Games
Mike DiNovo-US PRESSWIRE

The Chicago Bulls' first five games have given fans reasons for optimism, but there have also been some negative signs which present concerns.

The 3-2 Bulls have played four of their first five games at home, only netting victories against subpar opponents (Sacramento Kings, Cleveland Cavaliers and Orlando Magic).

One of their losses came against a depleted New Orleans Hornets team, which was unquestionably disappointing.

The other loss was more understandable, at the hands of the defending Western Conference champion Oklahoma City Thunder. The Bulls battled admirably against OKC, but a late scoring burst by Kevin Durant doomed them.

Their first slate of games have featured both "stud" and "dud" performances. We will unpack those here while seeking to draw some implications as the season progresses.
