Here's what SB Nation's Seth Rosenthal had to say about the Bulls this week:
That collapse against the Bucks briefly interrupted what has otherwise been a bit of a defensive reawakening for Chicago. Tom Thibodeau's gotten some nice contributions off the bench, in part because he's enabling them with a slightly lengthier rotation over the last couple games.
Chicago has been powered by Luol Deng, who is averaging a team-high 18 points per game and seven rebounds. Richard Hamilton, Carlos Boozer and Joakim Noah are each averaging 13 points per game.
Chicago has a busy week coming up. The Bulls will play the Indiana Pacers and Cleveland Cavaliers on back-to-back nights on Tuesday and Wednesday. Then they'll move on to play the Detroit Pistons on Friday and the New York Knicks on Saturday.
