For all the criticisms of Jim Boylen’s breach – and best are acceptable – the Bulls accept been acutely bigger defensively beneath their new arch coach. Both statistically and beneath the eye test, the Bulls defense, which ranked 22nd beneath Fred Hoiberg, has bigger acknowledgment to Boylen’s absorption on that end of the floor.
There accept been some hiccups and poor showings – 112 credibility at home to the Magic was not absolutely ideal – but the Bulls will lath their alike to Portland on Wednesday with the NBA’s 14th best aegis aback Boylen took over for Fred Hoiberg a little added than a ages ago.
The 16-game sample admeasurement isn’t massive, admitting actuality in advanced of contenders like the Sixers and Warriors, and actuality alike with the East-leading Raptors is a absolute sign. And they haven’t artlessly feasted on any accessible abhorrent schedule: Aback Boylen took over the Bulls accept played nine amateur adjoin teams who currently rank in the top 16 in abhorrent efficiency.
That arresting accomplishment (a agilely acclimated appellation about to how the aggregation was arresting above-mentioned to Hoiberg’s dismissal) will now be put to the test. The Bulls commence on conceivably their best difficult amplitude of the season, a slate of bristles amateur in nine canicule adjoin teams that are 68-32 at home. They’ll additionally face some of the league’s best offenses while aggressive the rigors of a West Coast alley trip.
“It is a big challenge,” Jim Boylen said afterwards Tuesday’s practice. “We talked about that in our coaches affair yesterday.
“We charge to accept a concrete courage on both ends of the floor, embrace acquaintance and comedy through acquaintance and not let bodies booty us out of what we appetite to do or abuse us on the arresting end. That’s area we’ve got to abound and all you can do is assignment at it, so that’s what we’re doing.”
The Bulls activate their alley cruise adjoin a Blazers aggregation ranked 11th in abhorrent ability and two canicule after face the Golden State Warriors, who admitting their struggles are still putting up celebrated abhorrent numbers (that are additionally the best in the league).
Their best adventitious for a achievement will be in Utah adjoin a Jazz aggregation ranked 21st in abhorrent ability and will acceptable be after Ricky Rubio, who pushes best of their pace. A slower bold will comedy into the Bulls’ hands. The Lakers will acceptable be after LeBron James, who is still alive his way aback from a beam abrasion suffered on Christmas Day. Los Angeles has struggled mightily after James, baronial 26th in breach aback James went bottomward and accept absent bristles of seven.
They end the cruise in Denver adjoin a Nuggets aggregation ranked seventh in abhorrent ability and is accepting healthy, with Gary Harris and Paul Millsap abiding to the starting calendar this week.
A 2-3 accomplishment to the cruise would be a best-case scenario, but the truer analysis will be how Boylen’s aegis endless up adjoin some of the game’s best. Jabari Parker’s connected absence in the calendar has helped the all-embracing defense, but arena after Justin Holiday has fabricated affairs added difficult.
Expect connected account for amateur Chandler Hutchison, while Shaq Harrison should get affluence of run as the small-ball baby advanced on the additional unit; adjoin these almighty offenses the Bulls will amount aegis over offense, while Bobby Portis’ acknowledgment will accord Boylen and the Bulls some of that much-needed brainy courage they’ve formed home in convenance the aftermost week.
