PBT Extra: Bulls more than just Derrick Rose show, too much for Bucks

6 Comments

This Bulls team is not like the last few Bulls teams.

For years, the Bulls have been a defense-first team that ground their opponents down and found just enough offense to get the wins. For a while, that offense was the Derrick Rose show until his injuries changed that.

This year’s Bulls have much more offense — Jimmy Butler, Pau Gasol, and others. That’s what Jenna Corrado and I talk about as we look at how the Bucks vs. Bulls series moves forward with the Bulls up 2-0.

Bulls’ fans in the Chicago area, if you are a Comcast subscriber you can watch a free live stream of Thursday night’s Game 3 between the Bulls and Bucks, just follow this link.

This has been a physical series, but the Bucks don’t have the firepower to challenge Chicago. That lack of firepower makes me suspicious of how the Bulls’ defense looks this series. Cleveland will be a better test.
