The Chicago Bulls failed to finalize the deal

If Chicago hasn’t caught your eye this season, you could be forgiven.

The team, which emerged from a campaign in which they topped the Eastern Conference table for most of the season, is now down 6-8. Yes, the Bulls were good on D and finished ninth, but they were just as disappointing on O with 22nd place. Fittingly, Chicago basically has a neutral net rating for the year, meaning the club has scored as many points as it has given up.

In other words, the Bulls were about as average as a team can get. And maybe that’s what’s fascinating about where they’ve struggled so far: They’d probably be pretty good if they didn’t keep screwing up at the end of tight games.
