Bulls

As the Bulls drop in the Eastern Conference standings it's becoming clearer that their team identity may be that they simply don't have one, writes Insider Vincent Goodwill.
The Bulls trailed by as many as 27 on Monday against the Charlotte Hornets in a 108-91 loss, giving them a 2-5 record on their seven-game road trip. Pau Gasol had 22 points and 10 boards in defeat.
Derrick Rose was a late scratch from Monday's matchup against the Charlotte Hornets with what the Bulls called "general soreness." Aaron Brooks and Kirk Hinrich started in the Bulls' backcourt.
