A lot of ins, a lot of outs, a lot of what-have-yous, a lot of strands to keep in my head, man

Some very good things happened tonight. I give Boylan some credit for benching Wallace, who had nothing after his first three makes and matches up terribly with the Warriors. Thabo is starting to look like the player we drafted. Gordon/Noce were deadly for the first 46 minutes. And that was one hell of a game.

But it was ultimately frustrating. Why? Duhon is not an effective NBA point guard. He was a -17 in his 34 minutes, mostly because Davis and Ellis just abused him off the dribble whenever they wanted. As for Tyrus, the man's tick is so inconsistent that he presses whenever he steps on the floor, picks up ticky fouls, and the gets yanked again. And down the stretch, at home, when the Bulls should be securing wins, our sets look disorganized or we can't hit big shots (see Noce's 18 footer and Smith's gimme that he had stripped away). Too bad too, as this would have been a good one to get on ESPN before Detroit comes rolling through.
