Locked On Bulls is back with a fresh episode, the guys spend the first segment of the show talking about the last leg of the road trip from hell and the ninth consecutive loss in Denver. For the breaking news on Wendell Carter Jr.'s injury, fast forward to 48:52 mark. According to the Chicago Tribune, Wendell Carter Jr. is being recommended surgery on his left thumb he injured in Tuesday night's game that would keep him out 8-12 weeks likely ending his season.
Locked On Bulls discusses how the Denver Nuggets coming into this game were at the top of the Western Conference as one of the best teams in all of basketball. Jim Boylen and his Bulls made little to no adjustments to their game and were blown out in the third quarter.
The guys discuss how Lauri Markkanen's impressive first quarter was overshadowed by another embarrassing loss mixed little effort and an awful game planning. The guys break down some advanced analytics during the Bulls nine-game losing streak and how this possibly could get worse.
The guys spend some time taking voicemails from Bulls fans to end the show, you can interact with Locked On Bulls at (331)-979-1369 or on Twitter @LockedOnBulls. First voicemail asks the guys about how the players need to start taking more accountability for their performances. The guys discuss how LaVine and Dunn have ghosted on this road trip, the inability to get to the free throw line, and the terrible offensive first quarters under Jim Boylen.
Second voicemail details a Bulls fan who no longer believing in Kris Dunn as the starting point guard of the future. The guys describe how Dunn's play has lacked over during the road trip, since his return from injury, and why all of a sudden it seems like his mentality is to score first rather than to facilitate? Has he been worse for LaVine and Markkanen's development or all of these guys just trying to do it themselves? The last voicemail asks the guys who the front office will choose if it comes down to Zach LaVine vs. Jim Boylen if their relationship continues to crumble.
The final 10-minutes of the show is dedicated to the breaking news of Wendell Carter Jr. potentially missing the rest of the season. How will this affect the Bulls on the floor and are the Bulls cursed? All of this and so much more on Locked On Bulls.
