To say the Chicago Bulls have been disappointing to start the season would be an understatement. At just 3-5 on the year, one could look at their record and assume they’ve simply had a tough go of things. But one look at their +/- on the season tells a different story.
Through their first eight games, the Bulls have a +/- of -44, which is the fifth-worst mark in the NBA and an impressively bad one at that, considering they just blew out the Utah Jazz 130-113. The Bulls have been all over the place on both ends of the court, failing to meet internal expectations in any aspect of the game.
The Chicago Bulls Central YouTube channel recently discussed whether or not the Bulls will be able to build an identity over the course of their current road trip.
Chicago’s next game is on Wednesday night against the Phoenix Suns.
