PBT Extra: Three reasons for the Bulls to be optimistic about Game 6

23 Comments

The Bulls are on the brink of elimination heading into Thursday night’s Game 6, but I tell Julie Donaldson there are good reasons for Bulls fans to be optimistic they can live to play another day.

The best news for Chicago is the return of Pau Gasol, who gives them needed scoring and depth up front. Gasol has not been brilliant this series — the defense was four points per 100 possessions worse when he was on the court in the first two games — but they need his offense and the depth more than anything.
