Defense keying Bulls' revival
With those numbers, you might surmise the Abomina-Bulls are back for an encore performance, forcing Windy City fans to endure year six of the Curse of Krause. Yet here they are at 30-27, challenging for a top-four seed in the Eastern Conference.
The puzzling part is how they're pulling this off after half a decade of ineptitude. Certainly, they've played much harder under coach Scott Skiles and dispatched a few players who weren't buying into the program. But playing hard or not, there still seems to be an awfully big shortage of points here. Can you name the last playoff team whose leading scorer averaged only 15 a game?
