Things are going pretty well for the Chicago Bulls right now. The team has their highest win total since winning the NBA Championship in 1998 and are tied for the Eastern Conference lead with 13 games left.
“It’s fun, I can’t really complain about anything right now,” Derrick Rose said. “We’re winning games, playing good basketball. The city is going crazy, we have great fans everywhere, every arena we play in we have a good amount of fans there. We’re loving it right now.”
The Bulls are 9-2 in the month of March and on Monday night made the Sacramento Kings look like a high school team as they cruised to a 40-point victory. The Bulls shot 61.3% from the floor and 70.6% from three-point range, and when that happens there aren’t many team that can hang with them.
“If we shoot the ball like we did [Monday night],” Kyle Krover said, “our defense is usually there. So if we do that, we’re a pretty good team.”
Rose and Korver led the Bulls with 18 points each, but eight Bulls players reached double figures, including all five starters.
The Bulls will play the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday night.
