How 'bout if they start losing, they stay in motel 6 and take a regular flight out of O'Hare with the other mere mortals.

Whomever put this schedule together wasn't being kind to the Bulls. There are plenty of cream-puff Western Conference teams this year that the Bulls will likely beat, but I don't see one of them on this trip. This team could easily lose all of them.

San Antonio was the only team on the list that looked like a win, but they seem to have made adjustments for all their injuries and the backups are learning their roles.

In years past The clips were included in this trip, that would have been a good confidence boost as they are back to being the Clippers. Memphis, OKC are another couple that come to mind that would have been nice to see.

Again, outside of SAS all teams have winning records at home.

It could get ugly, especially tonight.

Boston(Bullsfan)'s right on the mark. Where are the clips when you need em'?Sometimes you can mask certain weaknesses at home, but on the road that's not the case. I think Thomas and Noah's inconsistent/poor play could really hurt us on the west coast/circus trip. On the other hand, maybe Derrick will keep playing like he has been which will mean entertaining basketball to watch none the less. I'm hoping the Bulls can win one or possibly two games, but only if Noah and Thomas quit being such a drag on the rest of the team. Tyrus looked absolutely apathetic during moments of the Indiana game. If we see more of that from him, he should not leave the bench no matter what. Ben better not think he's going to dribble/handle the ball like a point or that will kill the offensive flow as well. Pass the balll/move without the ball, that's how we might sneak away with one or two of these games. And playing better team 'D' which Hughes, Derrick, Noc, and some others have been doing as well. Be ready to be abused by the Lakers tonight though. Getting Gasol for them was really unfair, like Boston handed K.G. Oh well, here we go.

Ah yes. Do things the Chicago Way and blame bad playing on the circus or on the goat or on west coast teams or Green Bay or ...
