The Chicago Bulls have been able to win games down the stretch and their success can fall on these three reasons.
The Chicago Bulls have found ways to win big games down the stretch and have stayed competitive against some of the top teams in the NBA for four quarters.
Many questions surrounded the team as they entered a season with no identity after missing the NBA bubble the year before.
The Bulls went through a big transition period this past offseason as there was a big front-office shakeup, paired with the changing of a head coach. Then they made a couple of small offseason roster moves that didn’t have much hype and their No. 4 pick had many fans scratching their heads as he was only 19 and didn’t have much college experience.
However, despite the lack of major moves, the Bulls have continued to grow together and found an identity under their new coach, and have shocked a lot of fans around the world in their first 30 games.
After their win on Monday night, the Bulls are tied for the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference and are winners of four out of their last five. Their ability to compete has been evident and should be reassuring for Bulls fans who have watched their team struggle for the past couple of years.
With the playoffs within reach and the team trending upward, there are a few components that can be viewed as reasons for their success.
