    As much as I’m disappointed in the Bulls slow starts, very inconsistent and sloppy play … and resulting loss last night, I have to give credit to ATL’s Joe Johnson last night. He was unbelievable with clutch three’s (5/5) and seemingly made a big hoop every time the Bulls threatened to pull away in the 3rd. Jamal Crawford was also pretty clutch for the Hawks. Disturbing that ATL shot that well … IN CHICAGO … but it happened.

    More disturbing is probably the condition of Derrick Rose’s ankle. 🙁
