What can we pick out as the five best individual outings from any Chicago Bulls player in the 65 games they played in so far this season?
Prior to the NBA placing its 2019-20 regular season on hiatus after Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert tested positive for novel coronavirus back on March 11, the Chicago Bulls were trying to move this rebuild in the right direction. But head coach Jim Boylen and the Bulls weren’t having much luck in even finding some direction in the midst of the third year of the rebuild.
At the hiatus, the Bulls hold a record of 22-43 through their first 65 games. Their last game saw them defeat the Cleveland Cavaliers on March 10 by the final score of 108-103 at the United Center.
The real looming question at the NBA’s hiatus for any team in the same situation as the Bulls is whether they will actually get to play in another game this season?
Depending on what happens with all these precautions to limited the outbreak of COVID-19, the NBA might be forced to just jump straight into the playoffs. Really no matter how many games the NBA season would have left during the 2019-20 campaign, the Bulls are too far out of the playoff picture to make a real run at getting back into contention.
Unless the NBA has a play-in tournament that replaces the usual method of playoff seeding, the Bulls should be turning their focus to the upcoming offseason and the 2020 NBA Draft. The Bulls are going to enter the fourth year of the rebuild with a laundry list of tasks to accomplish to right the ship.
Nonetheless, the Bulls did still have a number of noteworthy performances from their best players that shouldn’t fly too far under the radar during the hiatus.
Here’s a look into the five best individual player performances of the 2019-20 NBA season to date for the Chicago Bulls.
