Aggrey Sam and Sam Smith break down the Bulls' 93-88 win over the 76ers, and talk about why Philadelphia struggled and how they may be different when Andrew Bynum returns - 12/1
And I agree Sam CSN Chicago dot com here at the united and after the Bulls narrow victory over the seven -- I mean it was Sam Smith basketball hall of Famer. -- and from -- Beckham. Sam obviously they had a hit many places that's true obviously -- 76 in the Bulls in this thing a lot of the cast of characters that were around for the last playoff series. For the Bulls we all know that their growth silent right now for the sixes and missing out of the country without Lou Williams old friend Elton Brand and obviously is Bynum they're big free agent movement some acquisition. You know and yeah if only he might be he might get lucky strike downtown and fifth at at the hopefully that knee is okay. Put the Sixers know their new look team right now no drew out of this kind of leading the way but they also on the surprise of the Eastern Conference so far this season when would you make. Them so far. Also and that's something -- I know you haven't talked about you haven't noticed really also at Chicago you know the bench mob does not your -- it is yet and I forgot about -- forgotten about earlier hasn't been brought up yet you're in Chicago and there. Not a Sixers are kind of surprised because when you're watching him decide what you mentioned the fact that half the team is gone and they were expecting to have a team built around Bynum. And they're gonna play through Bynum from their whole offseason was built on an annual after the trade of rooms tennis and on their top four team in the east. So you know emotion was how it gonna score so you know I mean it's obviously you can see the way they play how physically so hard so tough to -- -- Doug Collins kind of team. Doug just kind of dragging him through the question is how long you can last planned that way don't -- -- questions about the Colts and Chicago about that style of play maybe. Coach in Chicago -- gone through the coach of the year I think they're only 500 already they you know with no bench mob then and who knows what else. But it is an equipment question I mean there and their interest in team but they're really missing signs mean I was the whole thing with them in the offseason but couldn't get Bynum they're gonna get size they're going to be a factor. Now pause is really not played well. He's another one of these guys who got paid. You know unlike I think that's why you know where you work and I worked -- paying us extra because they want us to play you know continue to report at a high level journalism. A lot of these guys were getting there in new contracts like you know -- particularly as one of those guys and Lavoy Allen you know even though I think he's the temple guy yet despite that. You know he struggled some but -- I played OK okay is there an a tonight and he's a great got Evan Turner's been good you know JJ -- -- or should start to hit some shots. It is a tough team you saw Bulls played a very good defensive game as a team has started to score and make shots. When they're open they'll make shots and in the Bulls played a little more physically tougher than usual and had -- -- -- -- I'm surprised there where they are and I think -- that was to sort of really wanted this game -- Without a doubt obvious. You know the whole mini controversy early in the week about. How was no Toews is this evening minutes and no this daughters may be now playing enough in this thought is playing too much no back and forth either way. One of those guys those kind of the middle of that was rip Hamilton and he suffered a move that would appear to be a minor foot injury looked like a sprained left foot according to both public relations. Everything you know exactly what it was. Now he did come back in the game to make some clutch free throws late but obviously with how old afterwards in the locker room. If we're -- with any amount of time as much people have been complaining about him how how will that affect his boasting. Well Jimmy Butler -- to plant some. Some minutes and and Tom we'll have to spell Belinelli is game again -- get him in there. Not. Joseph came back. Not to say it's equivalent but Joseph came back and have playoff game and then didn't walk for two months after that so I'm not saying that that's the case. But you know he had the -- X rays got MMI Sunday as he told us you know after the game. The worst in part for me although -- -- -- -- that usually is an injury to us since I was supposed to hand. But if he he you know that he said he heard something pop. And it's usually you know if you do if you are not blowing bubble gum while you plan here and some pop is not a good thing. So old you know I think that's still question about you know where he's going to be weather is going to be played they'll look to me like he's going to be out. I don't know six for a while but he's not going to be playing in the next game. And so you know now the question I think race itself they have a open spot you know that they were I don't think they were looking in them and reduce some but if they had an injury. Now what was that Dallas forget that guy's name was here back and forth last year for awhile. Kind of liked him from Houston shooting guard -- -- -- -- so we haven't finally we have finally Mike James and -- it's going to be -- gets happy somebody who's been in Houston or New York. But but you know -- -- maybe that might be checking where Mike James it's there for the time being. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I don't think it's posted before wood's price -- -- his game Milloy is a guy this performed in the playoffs. Now just looking ahead and -- I guess looking behind a little bit not see the Bulls struggle there we were on that road trip you know those three losses rove well first in the regular season on that some. But looking ahead you know this but this gets me is pretty crucial. Know you have this homestand right now they ended with Indiana on Tuesday in a somewhat -- -- -- Cleveland Detroit that they should be offensive you know when both of those games of the extremely winnable games and it gets tough you know if the Bulls know can survive -- this month of December I think that you know all of our predictions will. No maybe not come to fruition this yet but we can kind of see the landscape moving forward do you agree that you know this month in December is really going to be. -- -- -- -- Well you know it's all going to be. Tough for them because you -- the other than the Milwaukee game which was really aberration and then there's just got away and gave us 34 days -- you know to bash people it was nice. You know it was gonna gonna happen like this is. But it is thrown under the excruciating games all like this and this one kind of got me really at the end gonna miss and miss a couple of free throws to lose this game at the end. You know and to make some great shots dribbling behind his back becoming -- foot -- we don't see that very often -- and you know I've pretty good stuff. Later right start next Saturday but that is it isn't this Saturday with the with the New York game the eighth. You know he I think they have eight or nine straight teams that are playoff type teams for this year Clippers are and -- you know Clippers who stared -- really out there jumping all over the place. Brooklyn whose play on the -- right so you know it's really a tough stretch and and frankly going to look at that schedule they've come out of that 500 I think they're doing well.
