CTL on Bulls' collapse against Milwaukee
Tue, 27 Nov 2012|
The CTL panel share their thoughts on the Bulls' second half collapse against the Bucks on Monday night - 11/27
The good news today is the Derrick Rose released -- final installment is a deep this series called the return. Well last night his teammates film a new video called the collapse then at 27 point lead in the third quarter and the -- well erotic get going. And going. And going like Energizer bunny at 314. Run brought Milwaukee level and that some cold shooting by the -- helped the Bucs hold on late QB Kolb to by the Bulls didn't relied on its starters for most of the second half of the reserves playing a grand total of ten twice three over the final two quarters. When asked if there was a reason for the reserves staying on the bench they're normally eloquence that one alert well. Was he sending a message brass -- bench isn't as good as them lobby said the past two seasons. Well tell me whether it's a new message are facing reality that I think one is -- He's been. You know sort of fiddling with -- the line a little bit. Looking for the right combination of players and clearly this is not so. The bench attitude that the Bulls had in the past couple years -- goes -- -- -- -- take it. Interchange a lot of players and and not -- certain not. Lose a beat and in many times it would pick up well on a lead that they had originally. The -- -- -- thirty minutes altogether in the first half so you got some older guys on that team there were worn down Miami and a and again none of them play defense -- a couple play defense from them but then they can't get a basket because there have been exhausted exhausted so you mean they go -- minutes for somebody were Hamilton's 36 among the five. Autism and other. They're the -- just warned army clearly -- we we talked earlier about you know. To try would've loved to have the -- -- -- again and I'm sure you know what he's saying is that by him you know playing only in this little bit of time -- he made a mistake you guys above me. Yeah I don't agree with who they have on eighteen you know. My first reaction was just how much here Bruce this means and how much this. You hit that the Bulls miss a guy like Derrick Rose of the other into the court how it has to change the rotation for a guy like Tom Thibodeau and maybe he has to have. A few more offensive player offensive guys that are on the court. To maybe generate some points for these guys have some shortcomings of the defensive and I mean. He can to meet the Bulls are just a team exposed to -- fans. This winter. -- -- -- -- you know the depletion of the bench. You know represented the economics of the game when we always focus on the marquee players of that team. Who is able to yet and are not able to get because of finances but -- -- guys are just as important at some sang and they were not able to keep all the bench guys because a financial reasons for the most part wasn't. Just the decision how we're gonna get rid -- these guys have helped us whose whose financial knew those Ronnie Brewer and you lose Korver and you lose a Sheikh. Those guys Korver sought -- -- to think guarded people are still did have some big threes. From time to time so yeah I mean I bet they are a much weaker team. And we thought there were going to be when you obviously you lose -- it was one of the great players in the game today. Somebody wins you have it back and tell you can pick this season right now. -- who incidentally the more I see this team the last I like are they get 500 I'd be surprised right now. And it just slightly above 500 maybe to get 45 points. You know and not thinking get to that they they so struggle that the defense event they also struggle at times to score. You know what Carlos Boozer is it on his game hitting his fall away gaining some buckets inside. What they struggled to get don't know what's been an uncharacteristic as has been of the court defense obviously. How did Patterson strangled allowing over a hundred points and it's. That's just not comfortable faster now then -- -- they have enough problems scoring themselves so they're not gonna win. A lot of games that way you've got to play real. -- -- -- It's and his -- Shaquille O'Neal will play out there about the heat argument this is an eighty game season now it's not a fifty or sixty game season a fifty game season like last year so local if you're not plan that bench those old starters are gonna get a lot older by the end of the year she.
