The “try-hard” Bulls are seemingly dead. Much has been made of the lack of effort by the Bulls in games against bad teams like the 76ers and Timberwolves. Does a mediocre Hornets team mean a mediocre effort from the Bulls? Noah is expected to play tonight so it will be interesting to see if his role expands at all, though he hasn’t done much to earn more minutes.
As always, we will watch Rose closely in this game. This will most likely happen every game until he gets hurt or starts performing like an MVP again. Probably not fair to a guy with that many injuries on his resume, but when you’re getting that paycheck it should be expected.
