The Bulls are up to the sixth slot because they have won five-of-six and may have found some offensive identity in the process. The Bulls have not been the model of consistency this season, to put it kindly, so I’m not going to say they’ve found their groove. Or that the internal squabbling is over. But they are taking steps in the right direction.
The Celtics fell to 12th this week because they lost to the Lakers and Nets in the same week. Boston has no business losing to those teams. That said, this is just a minor setback.
