As The Bulls Turn: No Bogut, No Problem for Milwaukee

You're the Milwaukee Bucks. You just lost your dominant big man (Andrew Bogut) to a gruesome arm injury (a fracture, sprain and dislocation, gnarly!) for the rest of the year. You're playing the Chicago Bulls and the Bulls are desperate for a "W" to try and make the playoffs. Well, at least Chicago should be desperate for a win, judging by their play last night however, the Bulls are desperate for this season to be over (don't worry guys, five games left to go.)

Look at that box score. That's not a box score for a full NBA game, that's a box score for 2.5 quarters of a game. You want a bona fide NBA box score? Try on this Oklahoma City-Utah number. This wasn't some classic defensive battle, though the Bucks are actually a very good defensive squad. The Bulls are just awful right now, 16 turnovers; 4-12 shooting from Hinrich; 5-12 shooting from Rose; 3-11 from three point land. I guess you can applaud the coaches for only playing Pargo for six minutes. The whole team: LOLZ, ROFL, LMAO, et cetera.

The good news? At least the Toronto Raptors lost as well, so the Bulls are still only one game out of the playoffs. Shocking, I know. Also, Chris Bosh sustained a fractured face in the loss, so Toronto's best player is out too. Of course, we're talking about the Bulls, so the entire Raps squad will have to come down with the plague or something for Chicago to even draw even with the Canadian team. Also? The Charlotte Bobcats won last night over a Joe Johnson-less Hawks team, this further cements the Bobcats playoff berth. The first trip to the postseason ever for the franchise.
