TOMLIN: BULLS 1-0, WILL TAKE WINS HOW THEY COME
Words by Terrence Tomlin
Even with the debut of Hoiberg’s new offense, the Bulls snatched their first win of the year, 97-95 over the Cavaliers in their trademark grind-it-out fashion.
Call it a Thibodeau hangover, but for a team undergoing an identity makeover, still trying to shake Rose/Jimmy beef rumors, and dealing with injuries to key players, they’ll take wins however they come. Early on, at least. For the Bulls, 1-0, provides much welcomed evidence that they are moving in the right direction.
“It’s huge.” Rose said on the Bulls win over the Cavs. “Especially for the team that we have and everything that we’ve been going through as far as coaches. Guy’s like me, Joakim, and Jimmy becoming veterans, that’s huge for us. We want to build off of it.”
