The following is an excerpt from Mike McGraw of the Daily Herald. You can read it in it's entirety here.
After the latest low-scoring Bulls win, coach Tom Thibodeau was asked whether he cares if these games aren't necessarily eye-catching.
"You guys are into the aesthetics. I'm into the wins," Thibodeau said. "You've got to win different ways."
The Bulls have been stuck in the same routine for a few weeks now. Considering the injuries, absences and trade of top scorer Luol Deng, they should probably take that as a source of pride.
With Friday's 81-72 victory at Milwaukee, the Bulls have won seven of their last nine games. The highest point total by an opponent during those 7 wins was 91 by Memphis. This was the fifth straight game the Bulls held the other team below 90 and their fourth straight victory.
"We drill it every day. We have a system and stick to it," Mike Dunleavy said. "It doesn't matter who's playing. If you have a chance to go in the game, you follow those principles and we usually get pretty good results."
