CHICAGO - After grinding out three must-win games in a row last week, the Bulls have hit a wall.
Last night's loss in Orlando dropped the Bulls to an even 36-36 on the year and two games out of the playoff picture.
Accountability, poor defensive communication and a lack of urgency all were on the table as the team aired its grievances in a pre-practice meeting that Coach Fred Hoiberg described as 'productive.'
The Bulls have ten more chances to make up ground on the Pacers and Pistons - two of the six teams currently in the playoffs that they'll play down the stretch.
First up - the Atlanta Hawks, who last played the Bulls on January 9th when they were ten games over .500.
Since then, the Bulls have gone 14-24 and are now in danger of missing the playoffs for the first time since 2007.
