Thibodeau to Healthy Bulls: Run More

Tom Thibodeau has been barking out a simple directive to his Chicago Bulls team throughout the first few weeks of training camp.
The mantra also serves as the bedrock for some of the new wrinkles in Thibodeau’s offense. With Derrick Rose back in the fold, Thibodeau wants to use Rose’s speed to the Bulls’ advantage whenever possible.
“I think the important thing is to be well-balanced,” Thibodeau said recently. “Obviously, you want to get as many easy baskets as you can. So how do you get them? And the obvious (answer) is the fast break. I think the quicker you move the ball, the quicker you make decisions, get your body in motion, that also leads to second shots. We’ve always been a high-assist team, it’s a five-man offense, five-man defense and that’s the way we want to play. So if we can beat the defense down the floor we want to attack before they get set.”
