Bulls’ Thibodeau Searching for Answers
Tom Thibodeau is a man who prides himself on always being able to come up with an answer for what ails his team. No matter what the problem has been over the past two seasons, no matter which player has been out of the lineup, Thibodeau has always found a way to fix whatever problem arose.
After watching the Chicago Bulls struggle for the second consecutive night in a 102-94 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers, even the veteran coach is searching for answers. His team continues to struggle offensively, but it’s his tried-and-true defense that has become the larger issue. For the fourth consecutive game, the Bulls gave up more than 100 points.
“The defense right now, the intensity, we got to get that part right,” a frustrated Thibodeau said. “We got to get that right. The rebounding’s not good, the turnovers … so the defense the rebounding and the turnovers, all three are a problem right now so we got to correct that. Those three things put you in position to win. Then the inside out and sharing the ball. So we got to correct that.”
