Deja Vu All Over Again

The inevitable arrives.

Scott Skiles searches for the answer to the Bulls' shoddy play. What does he find? The A-Drain, baby!

Unmentioned, but sure to follow, is moving Ben Gordon to the bench to cure his shooting woes. Maybe we can also see about luring Antonio Davis out of retirement. His veteran presence would really be a lot more steadying than Tyrus Thomas' electrifying play.

As for activating Thomas Gardner, hell, so long as he's taking Sefolosha's spot, I'm all for it.

Also, Henry needs to learn how to read a chart. Joakim Noah's plus/minus (11.6) is below Duhon (16.1) and Aaron Gray (13.7). But no, folks, the answer is not to sit Gordon in place of Duhon, and shepherd in a new Twin Towers Era with Noah and Gray in place of Wallace and Ty Thomas. It's early. Ben Gordon will shoot better. Luol Deng will shoot better. Assuming his knuckle is what's bothering him, Kirk Hinrich, if he can get healthy, will shoot better. Bad as Saturday was, those types of shit games will happen, particularly, as Sweets noted, if you empty your bench with 20 minutes to play. Let's all take a deep breath, and take heart in the fact that water seeks its own level.

Henry screwed up today. Duhon and Nocioni haven't been "bright spots." More indicative of Deng, Gordon, and Hinrich's poor play than anything else.
