Chicago Bulls not pleased with performance vs. Clippers

Jennifer Stewart-US PRESSWIRE

Performance vs. Clippers might have been worst of the season by Bulls.

The Chicago Bulls shot 34 percent from the field, 14 percent from 3-point range and lost to the Los Angeles Clippers 101-80 on Saturday.

Bulls players and coaches were disappointed with both the offense and defense, particularly in the second quarter, in the loss.

"The second quarter was the difference in the game," coach Tom Thibodeau told ESPN Chicago. "We gave up 35 points and the tone of the game changed. We put them in the open court. We had 12 turnovers in the first half, too many of those turned into layups and dunks. The second half was not much better. Our turnovers and their blocked shots got us."

The 80 points were a season-low for the Bulls and Chicago had also not lost a game by more than seven points prior to Saturday's game.

The Bulls are now 1-1 on their five-game road trip. They play at Portland on Sunday.
