Luol Deng and the Chicago Bulls are riding high after defeating the Miami Heat. The victory ended Miami’s 27-game win streak, while offering insight on what they can learn as the season is in its final laps.
Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau is doing his best keeping the team prepared and ready to play on most nights. As long as they can avoid a debacle similar to the 42-point defeat in Sacramento versus the Sacramento Kings, they will be fine.
Thus far, we have learned just how resilient they are.
When the Bulls are short-handed, instead of making excuses, they play harder than their opponents do. How else can you explain their 39-31 record? They take on the defensive identity of Coach Thibodeau.
How much resiliency they have is not the only thing we can learn from the remainder of the season. In fact, several things will be discovered by season’s end.
