Chicago Bulls Take Out Philadelphia 76ers in a Rare Blowout

Chicago Bulls: Glad To Be Home And Took Care of Business Against The Sixers

David Banks – USA TODAY Sports

This hasn’t happened much this season where the Chicago Bulls could rest comfortably in the middle of a game. The Bulls took on the Philadelphia 76ers and won in a rout, 103-78. This was one of the rare games the Bulls put it all together for the whole game. It was a very good sight to see even against the lowly Sixers.

The Bulls are playing some of their best of basketball lately. They have won seven of their last nine games in 2014. This was a very good game to have for the way they lost against the Washington Wizards. Against the Wizards they couldn’t make the plays or big shots in crunch time. This game the Bulls jumped on the Sixers in a hurry and never looked back. The offense was very efficient with ball movement and the defense was in their usual locked down form. This was a great performance all around for a Bulls team that’s been up and down.

Joakim Noah has taken over the reigns as leader and led the team in this blowout win with 21 points, 16 rebounds and four blocks. He continues to play at an All-Star level and doesn’t seem to stop. Carlos Boozer also helped out by chipping in 15 points and 13 rebounds. The Bulls shot 49 percent from the field, collected 52 rebounds, 10 steals and 10 blocks. The defense held the Sixers to shoot 35 percent from the field and only 10 percent from three-point territory.

The Bulls did whatever they wanted to in this game against the Sixers. They played with pace, energy and the type of defense coach Tom Thibodeau loves. The Bulls know they can play these type of dominating games, especially against bad teams. When the Bulls play their all world defense, it leads to easy points. The Bulls need more games like this and they are playing very good ball.

President Obama's Got Jokes About Warriors, 1995-96 Bulls

The Golden State Warriors recently visited the White House to be acknowledged for their 2014-15 NBA championship. As you may know, President Obama is a huge fan of basketball, and especially his beloved Chicago Bulls. While introducing the team, President Obama joked that he was in the presence of one member of the greatest team in basketball history with Steve Kerr on stage. The Warriors head coach was a member of the 1995-96 Bulls team that many think of as the greatest team of all time.

Bulls' Noah Comes Nowhere Close To Making Jumper

Joakim Noah is a tremendous hustler and a gritty basketball player who does all the dirty work. That being said, this jump shot was terrible. This was the worst attempt that I've ever seen in my life and I don't expect that Noah will be shooting any more than layups for a good while.
