Chicago Bulls vs. L.A. Clippers: Postgame Grades and Analysis for Both Teams

The Los Angeles Clippers took down the Chicago Bulls in dominant fashion with a 101-80 win in Los Angeles.

Not only did the Clippers win by a lot, but in the process they opened quite a few eyes, showing the league why they should be taken seriously as they dismantled an Eastern Conference team that will likely make the playoffs.

Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan both contributed well, Chris Paul controlled the pace of the game and didn't need to do much more, while the Clippers bench showed why they are one of the best units in the NBA.

Hell, even Lamar Odom looked good in a little bit of garbage time during the fourth quarter, the only problem was that he was in for a lot of garbage time. I wonder how much it would cost to buy out his contract?

For the Bulls it more or less reiterated what we already knew about this team. Without Derrick Rose they're a decent team, but they don't have what it takes to threaten the best teams in the league. They're left without a dominant scoring threat and an emotional leader.

Once he comes back this game might play out differently, but without him they don't have much of a chance against a visibly more effective Clippers team.

Let's go a bit further and break this one down individually for each team.
