08:12 AM ET 01.13 | A slow-start formula hasn't hurt the Bulls at home, but it did Wednesday on the road. The Bulls (25-13) have dropped three straight away from home to see their road record slip to 8-10. They surrendered 36 points in the first quarter and didn't have enough offensive firepower to overcome the early struggles. ... The Bulls didn't make enough plays down the stretch, but Thibodeau focused on the start. "The big thing about this league is getting ready to play every night," he said. "Everyone says it's the last five minutes. No, it's not. It's the start of the game."

Late February early March and it won't be minute too soon. Not only does he provide the Bulls with energy he was giving you 14 and 11 from the center position. Kurt Thomas gives them all he can but when teams run multiple pick and rolls he just can't cover the ground on that weak side of the floor consistently enough.

I wish the season was only about 60 games long. 82 is just too long and drags on. Hard for teams to stay intense all year.

...wait. What am I saying? Do you mean to win a championship? Come on man. You can't be serious. The only way the Bulls win a title this season is if the entire Celtics, Magic, and Heat teams all drop dead of heart attacks, and the Lakers, Spurs, and Mavs all die of lupus.

LMAO
