Drink: Hands, Cabernet Sauvignon, 2010
Every diverse office in a big city has that Eastern European chick with a thick accent who does not have a firm grasp on what “business casual” means and comes in with shit like a fish net cardigan over a neon plaid shirt. Tonight, the Bulls were that poor, uninformed lass to the Clipper’s sharply dressed twenty-something.
The Bulls enforced their ugly style of play for all of one quarter, finding themselves down by a mere three points at the conclusion of that period (and that is with seven turnovers and 28% FG). Then the Clippers stout bench came in to face the Bulls’ Jobber Mob in the second. And somewhere around that time Bill Paxton yelled, “That’s it man, game over man, game over!” The lead quickly expanded to double digits and, if memory serves, it was never within ten for the rest of the game.
Your Chicago Bulls were simply out-talented and out-worked in this contest. There is little to say. The Bulls shot 33.7% FG and gave up 100+ points for the third straight game. They now head to Portland for tomorrow night’s game. If you have not been keeping up on current events, Portland is tough at home for any opponent, and the Bulls in the City of Roses have especially looked like dog meat, pal. Anything close to a showing like tonight and we will be looking at dropping two straight.
