What We Learned from the 1st Quarter of the Chicago Bulls' Season
USA TODAY Sports

How many of you had the Chicago Bulls with an 11-9 record after the first quarter of the NBA season?

The NBA Central’s current first-place team has been one of the league's surprises in the season's early stages.

Not only have the Bulls been competitive, they are playing a familiar brand of basketball anchored by effort and defense. Head coach Tom Thibodeau has the Bulls ready to play every game. The formula has worked well to this point, leaving open the possibility that the Bulls can be contenders if Derrick Rose is fully recovered from his ACL tear.

The Bulls have plenty of room to grow.

Joakim Noah is a better player than he was last season. Luol Deng is a better all-around player as well. The Bulls’ defense is still among the NBA’s elite, and if their offense continues to grow, look out—they may have something good brewing. Here is what we learned about the Bulls in the first quarter of the NBA season.  

 

All statistics were taken from NBA.com and are accurate as of 12-12-12.
