Bulls eliminated by LeBron and 100 days of Jim Boylen - Locked On Bulls

Locked On Bulls is back with a fresh episode and Jordan Maly goes solo to recap last night’s loss to the Los Angeles Lakers, 123-107. Jordan talks about the Bulls collapse during the second and third quarter that sparked a comeback for the Lakers down 20-points, LeBron James’ takeover, continuing problems with the Bulls defense, Lauri Markkanen’s struggles in the month of March, and 100 days of head coach Jim Boylen.

What started out as a really good first quarter for the Chicago Bulls quickly went south as the Lakers climbed back from down as many as 20-points to secure a win last night. Jordan takes a look at how LeBron James and Kyle Kuzma were able to lead the Lakers surge through the second and third quarters and why the Bulls were historically bad again last night. Jordan discusses the lack of depth on the bench as a reason for the recent blown leads, how the starters are unable to play all 48-minutes, the lack of awareness on the defensive side of the ball, and the struggles from other primary scorers in the absence of Zach LaVine.

Jordan hits on some positives from this game as well including one of the best games from Kris Dunn in over two months. Jordan talks about Otto Porter Jr.’s ability to space the floor, get out and run in transition, and also the ability to throw lob passes. Jordan questions whether or not Jim Boylen will be able to make adjustments to staggering his starters to combat the Bulls bench giving up leads early on and how the team can prevent third quarter turmoil. Jordan also discusses a bizarre Wayne Selden Jr. ejection that occurred.

To wrap up the show, today marks 100 days as head coach of the Chicago Bulls for Jim Boylen. Jordan splits the 45 games into two parts and looks at how the Bulls have played. Has Boylen improved since taking over back in December? Has Boylen been able to live up to what he wanted to see improved since he was given the job? How are Bulls fans feeling about Jim Boylen with only a few weeks left in the season? Jordan dives into the team stats in both stretches, talks about what it might mean for the offseason, some positives, some negatives, some concerns, and what the future might hold for Boylen and the Bulls. All of this and so much more on Locked On Bulls.

    One other issue is that if you are in a circumstances where you would not have a co-signer then you may want to try to wear out all of your money for college options. You’ll find many grants or loans and other scholarship grants that will present you with money to support with school expenses. Thank you for the post.

Bulls crawling to the finish line as injuries, losses pile up - Locked On Bulls

Locked On Bulls is back with a fresh episode, the guys recap last night’s loss to the Toronto Raptors without Zach LaVine, Otto Porter Jr., and Kris Dunn. The guys spend the second half of the show taking mailbag questions, texts, tweets, and voicemails in their weekly episode of Locked On Bulls mailbag.

Some of the topics include whether the Bulls will look to draft a big man in the second round, some prospects available, would they take the risk on Bol Bol if he slides to the end of the first-early second round, and a scenario of trading up with the Atlanta Hawks for the No. 2 pick.

The guys talk about last night’s game with the idea that LaVine, Porter, and Dunn were out and the Bulls only dressed nine players. Lauri Markkanen only played 16 minutes in the game and left with ‘illness’ in the third quarter. Should the Bulls think about shutting him down for the rest of the season?

The guys talk about the time he did spend on the floor last night and how he was more aggressive but just missing shots. The guys also mention how the Raptors seem to be walking through this game as told by the final score, they mention the final 90 seconds and give props to Shaq Harrison and Wayne Selden Jr.

Should the Bulls be looking to draft a backup big man with their recently acquired second-round pick in the upcoming draft? Would you take the risk on NBA prospect Bol Bol if he started to slide to the end of the first round? What would it take to trade up from pick No. 4 to No. 2? All of these voicemails are answered and so much more on today’s episode of Locked On Bulls.
