The guys dive right into the Bulls game from last night where they came up short against one of the NBA’s best teams over the last few weeks in a loss to the Indiana Pacers, 105-96.

The guys discuss some critical mistakes in the fourth quarter that tipped a fairly tight game in the Pacers direction. The guys mention Robin Lopez’s effective night as well as a difficult night shooting for the Bulls. The guys wrap up by mentioning Kris Dunn’s performance and how they didn’t expect the Bulls to leave Indianapolis winners on Tuesday.
