The Bulls stand at 23-16, but their record could—and should be—a little better. Their struggles at home and inconsistencies against good and bad teams have hurt them.
A recent injury to their current leading scorer Luol Deng is just another hurdle that Chicago will have to try to overcome as the season wears on.
The Bulls have been rather impressive at times but quite disappointing on other occasions. It's still early in the season, however, and the Bulls have yet to reach their full potential. With a few offensive tweaks and some consistency, Chicago can get there.
