Thibodeau: ‘Defense Is Getting the Benefit’

This is (Tom) Thibodeau’s third Chicago meeting, since taking over the Bulls in 2010. He sounded eager to hash out some rules interpretations, the sort of thing he probably does for fun in his spare time anyway.
“Each year it gets better,” Thibodeau said. “After a summer of watching our games [from last year], watching how the restricted area’s being officiated is always something I’m concerned with. I think initially the offensive player was getting the benefit and they were throwing themselves into the defensive players and getting to the free-throw line.”
“Then I think the officials adjusted to that – but now maybe going the other way. There are a lot of guys who are fouling in the restricted area and the defense is getting the benefit of the doubt. So I’m curious to see how that changes.”
