Bulls check engine light comes on after Pistons sweep weekend series

Friday night’s game was one the Bulls handed to the Pistons after building up as much as a 21-point lead. Sunday was met with the task of an 11 a.m., daylight savings time, Zach LaVine-less road game that spun out of control in the second half. Locked On Bulls is back to break it all down from the weekend.



Bulls check engine light on after series sweep against Pistons - Locked On Bulls

Locked On Bulls is back from the weekend and the guys recap what seemed like the tale of two halves for the Bulls in both losses to the Detroit Pistons this weekend. The guys talk about some of the Bulls biggest mistakes in the third and fourth quarter of both games, Otto Porter’s red hot Friday night, the Bulls bench, and a conversation about Kris Dunn’s performance over the last 15 games.

The guys start with how well the Bulls played in the first half of Friday night’s game. The guys recall Otto Porter Jr.’s incredible second quarter which pushed the Bulls lead to as big as 21 points. The guys describe how well Porter and Markkanen are going to play off each other and all the things that Porter does well beyond just scoring. The guys talk about the lack of adjustments made in the second half, why the Pistons were able to make a run in the first six minutes of the fourth quarter, and how the Bulls were unable to dominate in the paint in the second half.

The guys talk about the glaring issue that the Bulls are facing against some of the better teams and it comes with their bench. The guys talk about how they saw another case on Friday and Sunday where the Pistons bench outscored the Bulls and played a key role in letting Detroit pull away in critical moments that didn’t allow the starters to catch up. The guys talk about Langston Galloway and Luke Kennard contributing as huge factors for the Pistons while Wayne Selden Jr. had to play 5 v. 1 defense for the Bulls bench. How can Jim Boylen find a way to stagger his minutes better so that he doesn’t find himself in situations like he did Friday night?

The guys wrap up the show talking about Kris Dunn and the performances he had this weekend. It leads to a larger conversation about him over the last 15 games and if he’s improved at all? The guys wonder why his numbers looked rather pedestrian this weekend and even on Sunday in the absence of Zach LaVine. Jordan and Matt take a look at Dunn’s stats and you might just be surprised in some of the areas he has improved at and some of the others he has dropped off in. Where do Bulls fans sit with Kris Dunn’s future? Do Bulls fans still hold the same expectation level for Kris Dunn as the other core members of the rebuild or have they adjusted it since his return from injury? All of this and so much more on Locked On Bulls.

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?
