Bulls Get Back Noah But Lose To Toronto

Toronto-The Bulls looked rusty playing the Raptors Wednesday night.  Even with the return of Joakim Noah, Chicago didn’t play defense and took many bad shots.  The Bulls led for most of the game but gave it up in the 3rd quarter and even with Rose having a big 4th quarter, Toronto held onto the win.

Toronto out shot the Bulls making 58% of the attempts.  Bull’s coach Tom Thibodeau was asked after the game what most disappointed him, “What didn’t? Every aspect. Start with defensive transition, keeping the ball out of the paint, challenging shots, every aspect of our defense out the window.”

Noah pulled down 16 rebounds in his first game back since having surgery on his right hand.  Rose had 32 points and 10 assists, even with his 4th quarter resurgence; not playing defense came back to bite them.

Hopefully the Bulls play defense and take good shots against their tough opponents, the Miami Heat who will be coming into Chicago to play at 7:00pm.
