Locked On Bulls is back from the weekend and the guys are back to help break down an incredibly wild weekend for the Bulls in what turned out to be a marathon game on Friday and a close loss on Sunday to the Atlanta Hawks.
Jordan Maly and Matt Peck kick off the show talking about how they prepared Bulls fans on Friday's episode for what they might see offensively from both the Chicago Bulls and Atlanta Hawks this past weekend. The guys start off with some positive notes about Friday's four overtime win, 168-161 backed by Zach LaVine's career high 47-points. The guys talk about how the Bulls had multiple opportunities to close this game out in the fourth quarter and the first few overtimes and also how Atlanta had their fair share of opportunities to win this game.
Jordan and Matt seem to be split on the idea of this game being a solid win for this Bulls team. The guys discuss Lauri Markkanen's offense being absent in overtime, Zach LaVine having to take over, and Otto Porter also being stopped in the overtime periods. The guys discuss some critical mistakes by the players and coaching staff that contributed to the marathon of this game. Locked On Bulls talks about Trae Young's unbelievable night and how they were wrong about him last summer as a potential prospect.
Locked On Bulls shift their focus to some more positives from the overtime win on Friday including the defense played by Lauri Markkanen and Zach LaVine. Jordan brings up some advanced analytics from the overtime periods that may surprise some listeners and also talk about what he saw from both Markkanen and LaVine late. The guys discuss how the Hawks adjusted to the Bulls two best scoring options on Friday as well as Kris Dunn fouling out in the first overtime period.
The guys spend the back end of the episode discussing Sunday afternoon's game in which it looked as if both teams were still a bit gassed from Friday night. The guys talked about most notable storyline coming from this game in Trae Young being ejected and if they felt it was justified or not (hint, they don't think it was). Why does Alex Len seem to play at an All-Star level against the Chicago Bulls this season? Did the Bulls bench mob almost cost them lottery placement on Sunday? How are Bulls fans feeling after this weekend? All of this and so much more on a new episode of Locked On Bulls.
