Chicago Bulls: A Quirky Month or Sustainable?

Tom Thibodeau has had two primary five man units this year:

  1. Kirk Hinrich-Jimmy Butler-Mike Dunleavy-Carlos Boozer-Joakim Noah
  2. Derrick Rose-Butler-Luol Deng-Boozer-Noah

As per 82games.com each lineup has performed almost identically.

The Rose unit only played ten games together so we are looking at a small sample size.  Chicago has played sixteen games since trading Deng which is a decent sample for group “#1″.  In this time they have gone an impressive 10-6.

We must acknowledge the Bulls coaching staff (plus Noah) for ensuring team continuity despite two separate and major alterations to their roster.  It seems that tenacious defense has permeated the entire Chicago city limits.
