Welcome to the Daily NBA Fix for Friday, March 14, 2014. Smoke and mirrors are the only explanations for the continued success of the Chicago Bulls. Lose former MVP Derrick Rose? No problem. Get rid of a key contributor and uber hard worker in Luol Deng? No problem. They’re now 36-29 after a dismantling of the Houston Rockets and are the No. 4 seed in the East. Smoke and mirrors, man.
We’ve got highlights, game capsules, the top and bottom five players, the Goose Egg, Clean and Sober and Ironman Awards, we’ll look at who’s circling the drain, we’ll throw in some random tidbits, we’ve got the NBA schedule and we’ll even look at daily lines with some predictions for the gamblers out there.
Check out the highlight package below first, then get into the game capsules (home teams in CAPS).
