Chicago Bulls fall 98-91 to Grizzlies

Bulls had their chances but couldn’t convert as they lose 98-91.  Rajon Rondo led the Bulls with 17 points, 6 rebounds, and 8 assists. Bulls are now 32-36. Bulls did put up a good fight but just didn’t have that last push in them. Dwyane Wade left the game in the fourth quarter with an elbow injury and didn’t return. According to Fred Hoiberg, Dwyane Wade has a sprained elbow. Will get an MRI in the morning.  Jimmy Butler had just 14 points on 4-for-16 shooting. Jimmy gambled a lot on defense which I didn’t like. He just hasn’t looked like himself since the All Star Break. Jimmy Butler had just 5 points on 1/9 shooting in the second half. Bulls coach Hoiberg had used some 12 and 11 man rotations of late because the front office has an unrealistic dual goals of winning and developing untested players. Bulls have lost six of their last seven games. Bulls pick and roll defense was horrible and the Grizzlies kept exploiting them with pick and roll offense.
