In the latest NBA power rankings from SB Nation's Tom Ziller, the Chicago Bulls check in at No. 4. The Bulls were 2-1 last week with wins over Sacramento and Boston, plus an ugly home loss to the New Jersey Nets. Here is Ziller's comment on the Bulls:
It takes some real pluck to lose to the Nets. But hey, how about Luol Deng: Point Guard? The South Sudanese forward had back-to-back double-digit assist games this week.
The Chicago Bulls got Derrick Rose back in the lineup on Monday afternoon and bounced back from the Nets loss to defeat the Atlanta Hawks. Chicago will host Milwaukee on Wednesday in its last game before the 2012 All-Star break.
