The bulls win!!! 6-11

An excellent thing happened in the past 24 hours. The bulls strung together two wins in a row! Not only that, but they've improved to 2-0 against the hated Pistons this season. Everyone who got in the game contributed a solid effort that led to the win.

The star of the show for the bulls was Andres Nocioni. So far, I consider him the MVP for the bulls in this young season. He has definitely been the best overall player for us and has been a spark plug for us all season long. Nocioni chipped in 22 points off the bench, dished out five assists, pulled down three boards, all in 26 minutes of action. Chris Duhon also came off the bench and notched 12 points, including a big 3-pointer down the stretch of the ball game. Joakim Noah had 11 points in 16 minutes of action. Nocioni and Noah were killing the Pistons on the screen and roll and the bulls might want to keep that combination going. Ben Wallace had a great game with 10 points (8-9 from the free throw line), 13 rebounds, 4 blocks, and 4 assists. I guess bringing Ben back to his old stomping grounds put a little pep in his step. Luol Deng added 17 points and pulled down 9 rebounds in a solid effort. Joe Smith led the bulls in rebounding with 14 boards, Ben Gordon had 11 points, and Kirk Hinrich scored 9 points, dished 6 assists, and had 3 turnovers. However, Kirk was NOT the Terr-a-bull of the game. That distinction goes to......

The duo of Tyrus Thomas and Thabo Sefolosha!

Thabo's game has been on a milk carton all season long and got zero minutes of run on Friday night. Tyrus is chained to Scott Skiles' dog house and also didn't see any burn against the Pistons. Since we won the game, I can't really complain...BUT...Tyrus Thomas is too talented to be picking up DNPs. Trade him or play him. Simple as that.

Enough with the b.s. though...the mighty Boston Celtics touch down in the U.C. tonight. I'm hoping that this big win over one of the better teams in the East will carry over into tonight's game against Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Ray Allen. The Celtics are coming off a game in which they blasted the Raptors, who have also blasted the bulls twice this season. I'd love for the bulls to turn the C's 16-2 record into a 16-3 record. C'mon, Chi.
