The Bulls aren't looking to good since Carlos Boozer returned from injury.
Since the return of Boozer and Bulls have been out rebounded and in general manhandled by the class of the Eastern Conference.
In a game they never once had a lead in the Bulls lost to the Celtics for the second time in Boston this year 104-92 and were outrebounded 44-34. Also Rajon Rondo had more assists by himself, 19, then the Bulls as a while team, 18.
The story of the game was the first and third quarters were the Bulls scored 19 in each and were outscored by a total of 22 points. Does anyone else think that Keith Bogans might be to blame for the slow starts by the offense in the first and third quarters? Seems pretty clear.
This team will not take off till Bogans finds a seat on the bench to start the games and someone who can make something happen offensively is starting next to Rose. Korver or Brewer either one I'm good with.
Boozer did look a little bit better scoring 12 while Taj Gibson continues to play well in his new 6th man roll scoring 10 for the second straight game while also grabbing 8 rebounds.
It is going to take time to work Boozer into the fold and these last two games were a clear sign that the Bulls are not ready to be a member of the top tier of the Eastern Conference but with time they might.
This was the last visit to Boston this season, except for a playoff matchup. The remaining two games against the Celtics will both be at the UC, one in January and the final one in April a week before the playoffs start. That January 8th game at the UC will be a very good indicator of how good this team really might be.
