As a result of their perfect 4-0 week, the Bulls pulled into a tie with the Toronto Raptors for the third spot in the Eastern Conference with five games left to play in the regular season.

So without further ado, here is a look back at the week that was in Chicago Bulls basketball including game recaps, player of game/week awards along with the upcoming schedule.

    I am concerned that some of the teams with the worst records come close to beating the Bulls.

    • James Tillman

      Thanks for the response. I wouldn’t worry about that. Sometimes teams play up/down to the level of their opponent. They will be ready come playoff time.

  • Valerie Flemings

    As always, great analysis James. Anyway, what caused the Bulls to turn up the heat in the fourth quarter and win as opposed to clinching the game in the 3rd quarter.

      Appreciate the response Valerie. Honestly, I think it sometimes has to
      do with the team they’re playing against. For example,this bunch has no
      problem getting ready for the Miami Heat. On the other hand, they almost
      let the Bucks back into the game after leading by 20 points.
