Thibodeau Puts Bulls on Path to Victory
Tom Thibodeau always believes he has more than enough to win with.
It’s more than just a tired cliché for the veteran head coach; it’s a mantra.
No matter who is on the floor, no matter who is healthy, no matter how games his team has played in a row, Thibodeau always believes the Chicago Bulls can win.
He believes he has taught his team enough fundamental principles that no matter the talent level on the floor, they will always find a way.
That was the case Saturday night as the Bulls pulled off one of their most impressive wins of the year in a 93-76 decision over the Atlanta Hawks. Playing without Joakim Noah (plantar fasciitis in right foot), Carlos Boozer (right hamstring) and Kirk Hinrich (right elbow), the Bulls completely dominated the Hawks.
The Bulls have proven that all season without Derrick Rose, but especially so on Saturday night. Without three starters, the Bulls played the type of dominant game Thibodeau is always preaching about. They did all the little things they had to do, and it showed.
