Nearing the season's halfway point, the Chicago Bulls have shown that they can stay competitive without Derrick Rose. Joakim Noah has elevated his game to an All-Star level and Marco Belinelli has been a nice surprise for the Bulls.
However, Chicago seems to have hit a slump recently, losing three of its last four games, including blowout losses to the Hawks and Rockets and a 10-point loss to the Bobcats at home. There's still a lot of season left to be played, but the Bulls have to start performing better if they want to keep a good pace as the season continues.
In what has been an up-and-down season, the Bulls have seen both improvements and declines on their roster.
