The fall of the Chicago Bulls in the Eastern Conference classification followed this Tuesday (22), with a crushing defeat to the Milwaukee Bucks with a score of 126 to 98. Thus, the Chicago team has only three wins in the last 12 matches. After the game, DeMar DeRozan acknowledged the Bulls’ poor performance and warned of a change in team behavior.
“This must be frustrating. Everyone here hates to lose. At some point, we have to get tired of being kicked like that and turn the switch. All right, that’s enough. So, now is the time to turn it around and show that annoyance. However, we have to understand that the last few weeks have been difficult for us. How can we change this situation? It’s up to us to find out,” the star said after the fight with the Bucks.
The Bulls have come to lead the East throughout the current campaign, but today they are in fifth place and, therefore, are looking at direct vacancies to playoffs threatened by the Cleveland Cavaliers and Toronto Raptors. That’s because both opponents are chasing you on the leaderboard. The Ohio franchise has just one win, while Canada is trailing by two. As a result, with ten games remaining in the regular season, Billy Donovan’s side are starting to feel threatened.
The coach, however, has limited himself to complaining about the Bucks’ terrific performance this Tuesday. “The drama we wish they didn’t make, they did. It was a night where they really enjoyed themselves. Credit to them. And it was a night where we didn’t shoot the ball well.”
Another signing for 2021-22, Alex Caruso also commented on the current phase of the Bulls season. However, the point guard missed 38 games due to injury and has still not been able to contribute to the team’s progress since his return. “We have a lot of talent in our team. It’s not a matter of talent. It’s about running. Winning is winning at any level. So it doesn’t matter what level you are at.”
Despite the Bulls’ poor form, DeMar DeRozan is the only member of the team to be among the top ten names in the race for MVP this season. Recently, Kevin Durant stated that, for him, the Illinois star was one of the favorites for the award. However, like the whole team, their form has dropped in recent games.
However, the winger is in his best career season in terms of points per game. After all, he averaged 27.6 points, beating his 2016-17 campaign for the Toronto Raptors (27.3). Additionally, there were 5.3 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 50.5% shots from the field, in 68 games played.
