* This is the sixth and final game of the Bulls’ annual Circus road trip. After losing the first four, they beat the Pistons in Detroit on Wednesday, 99-79. Of Chicago’s seven wins this season, five (including the one versus the Cavs) have been by 14 or more points.
* Since Tony Snell was inserted into the starting lineup two games ago, the rookie out of the University of New Mexico has averaged 11.0 ppg on 50 (8/16) percent from the floor. Coming off the bench, Snell had put up 1.1 ppg on 33.3 (3/9) percent shooting.
* Taj Gibson had a career-high 23 points on 11-for-13 shooting in Wednesday’s victory over Detroit. That 84.6 field-goal percentage was the highest in a game by a Bulls’ bench player (minimum 10 FGA) since Jason Caffey went 11-for-13 (.846) against the Clippers on December 5, 1996.
