Cash Considerations Podcast: The Bulls might be decent

breath of fresh air Jason and Ricky keep the Bulls optimism going after consecutive wins over the Mavericks and Rockets get them back to 6-8 on the season, which washed the bad taste of the collapse against the Thunder out of the mouth. The Bulls might not actually be good overall, but they’re improving and fun to watch thanks to Zach LaVine’s scoring exploits and contributions from up and down the roster. The new front office is in a fascinating spot with this roster, and it will be interesting to see which way they go. Cash Considerations is part of the Blue Wire sports...

I don’t know what Denzel Valentine is doing out there, but it’s working

Alonzo Adams-USA TODAY Sports it’s a trip Denzel Valentine’s Bulls career seemed to be finished after a disappointing 2019-20 season in which he found himself in Jim Boylen’s doghouse. He had appeared in just 170 games in four seasons to start his career, with the 2018-19 a total loss thanks to ankle surgery. That was the third lower-body surgery of Valentine’s Bulls tenure. Valentine showed flashes of his intriguing skill set when he played 77 games in 2017-18, averaging 10.2 points, 5.1 rebounds and 3.2 assists while shooting 38.6% on 3-pointers. But taking...

the Bulls are streaking, are they actually somewhat decent?

Kamil Krzaczynski-USA TODAY Sports coaching has made the difference The Bulls defeated pedestrian opponents in their last two games, a Mavericks team missing half its roster and an uninteresting Rockets team without James Harden. But that’s how a bad team becomes an average team: consistently beating the bad teams. While the Bulls 6-8 record won’t impress anyone, most fans would have been thrilled with 6-8 after seeing the opening schedule. It won’t count on the books, but the league’s last two minute report shows the Bulls were definitively robbed in two of...

After possibly the most positive 1-3 road trip in the history of the franchise, the Chicago Bulls laid an egg against a rebuilding Oklahoma City Thunder squad. Chicago blew a 22-point second half lead; a collapse that could compete with the ugliest losses of the Jim Boylen era of Bulls basketball. The Bulls quickly put that stinging loss in the rearview mirror making it a...

Photo by Rocky Widner/NBAE via the vets have been a key to success The Bulls smashed the Mavericks 117-101 on Sunday to snap a four-game losing streak. While Lauri Markkanen led Chicago with 29 points, it was the bench that flipped the game in the first quarter and continued pouring it on throughout. The Bulls’ bench racked up 61 points, with the trio of Garrett Temple, Thaddeus Young and Otto Porter Jr. combining for 50 points on a ridiculous 23-of-30 from the field. Temple scored 17 points in the first half, while Porter closed the game down with 12 points on...

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports Lauri Markkanen also played well as the Bulls snapped a four-game losing streak The Bulls beat the Mavericks two weeks ago with both Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis sidelined. Doncic and Porzingis played this time around on Sunday, but Dallas was without a host of rotation players, and it showed in a big way as the Bulls’ bench powered a rather easy 117-101 victory. Garrett Temple had 21 points off the pine to lead a Bulls reserve unit that poured in 61 points on 27-of-41 shooting. Thaddeus Young stuffed the stat sheet with 15 points,...
