This week in Bulls History…
April 3, 1998 (21 Years Ago)
Michael Jordan reached 29,000 career points in a 107-93 win over Minnesota. At the time, Jordan joined Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Wilt Chamberlain as the only players to reach that plateau.
April 6, 1975 (44 Years Ago) – Bob Love Leads Bulls to First Division Title
Coming off an All-Star season, Bob Love lead the Bulls to a 47-win campaign and their first division title in 1975. The Chicago defense was stifling and the backcourt duo of Norm Van Lier and Jerry Sloan was enough to take the Bulls to Game 7 of the Conference Finals.
Last Week’s Overall Predictions: In the last 3 games, we both predicted a 1-2 record.
[Wyse Prediction] 1-2 for the week
[Marcus Prediction] 1-2 for the week.
Sat March 30 – Bulls vs Toronto Raptors (LOSS) (Wyse L, Marcus L)
Newcomer Walt Lemon Jr., the Chicagoan called up from the G League Windy City Bulls the previous day, led them with 19 points and added six assists and four steals against the Raptors. Timothe Lawawu-Cabarrot added 18 points and 10 rebounds, Shaq Harrison had 15 points and eight rebounds and Antonio Blakeney scored 12 points as the Bulls lost their fourth consecutive game to stay within two games of the Cavaliers (19-58) for the third spot in the draft order.
Mon April 1 – Bulls @ NY Knicks (LOSS) (Wyse W, Marcus W)
It looks like the Bulls out-tanked our expectations in New York, losing the Battle of the Tanks against the Knicks! Lemon Jr., Shaq Harrison, Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot and Wayne Selden were starters.
Former G-League Windy City Bulls players Rawle Alkins, JaKarr Sampson, and Brandon Sampson made up a big portion of the team’s bench.
Yet the one regular who actually suited up for the Bulls on Monday did what he could to keep his team close, or at least, competitive. In fact, it was his best offensive effort of the season, as Robin Lopez went for 29 points in 30 minutes of action, all of which came on his birthday.
Those efforts still weren’t enough for the very short-handed Bulls even against the struggling Knicks, who led the majority of the game in a 113-105 victory that snapped their six-game losing streak.
Wed March 3 – Bulls @ Washington Wizards (WIN) (Wyse L, Marcus L)
Bulls vs Wizards Post Game Analysis.
The Bulls took on the Washington Wizards in DC. The Bulls WON the game by the score of 115-114 on a limited roster for the Bulls. This game was actually close the whole way with the Wizards clearly lowering their play down to the level of the Bulls.
For the Wizards:
Our old pals Jabari Parker and Bobby Portis played their usual game. By usual, I mean Parker went 0-5 in the first quarter and left with a left knee sprain.
