The Chicago Bulls woke up in the fourth quarter but it was too late

Through three quarters of the game it looked like the Chicago Bulls didn’t give a crap anymore. Bulls players were showing no effort, they weren’t playing for each other, and they didn’t take their match ups personal. Jimmy Butler can’t do everything out there and there was numerous times during the first half of the game where he showed frustration towards his teammates. In the fourth quarter the Bulls finally woke up and crawled themselves back in the game. They rallied from a 19-point deficit. Jimmy Butler had a chance to tie the game with 3 seconds left but he couldn’t convert. Bulls had 18 turnovers in the game. Maybe if they didn’t play so sloppy they could’ve won this game. The Bulls gotta give effort the whole game.  You can’t start caring when you are behind. Once again the Bulls couldn’t control the pick and roll. Every game the Bulls are getting killed by pick and roll and they just seem to not adjust. Right now it looks like teams know how the Bulls are gonna play every game. They need to adjust and that’s not happening right now.  Multiple times during the game where Bulls scored the Wizards came right back within 7 seconds and scored right away. That can’t happen if you want to win. Jimmy Butler had 28 points which was his most since the All-Star break. Bulls are 2-8 in their last 10 games. Robin Lopez had a season-high 25 points and 12 rebounds. Bobby Portis has struggled the last couple of games and it looks like he has lost his confidence. The Bulls should start Nikola Mirotic over Bobby Portis. Bulls next game is tomorrow against the Utah Jazz.
