2) The main way the Bulls are getting it not-done: offense. Their attack ranks 28th in the league, thanks almost entirely to a freakishly-low eFG. Their defense ranks below-average as well, as they foul a lot and let opponents run riot on the glass. Aggression will serve us well tonight.
3) Want a short-hand measurement of how underrated Andris Biedrins is? Joakim Noah's having a breakout year that's not the equal of any of Andris's last three, and yet he's getting national feature articles and All-Star whispers. John Hollinger calls Noah the seventh-best young center in the game; Biedrins is not among the sixteen total guys he mentions. Hey, Hollinger, I think you need to boost your Usage Rate... of my dick.
4) If things get squirrelly with Monta and we feel the need to swap him for another big-money young 'un, the two guys that jump out as plausible returns are Andre Iguodala and Luol Deng. Deng has a bigger contract, health concerns and less offensive upside, but he defends and rebounds his position well. In a Maggette-less world (something that should come, with apologies to Corey), Monta for Deng wouldn't be a tragedy.
5) Tonight... is the night... when Randolph should staaaaaaaart.
Warriors Player To Watch: Morrow. Would be nice to see him get back on that horse.
Bulls Player To Watch: Derrick Rose. Would you trade Anthony Randolph for him? Think carefully about this.
