New Post on Bulls-76ers Game 2 at Hickory High

Go check out the new video breakdown of Philly’s Game 2 dominance over Chicago.

A few possessions later, the Sixers had the ball and ran something the Bulls had seen before. Andre Iguodala initiates the offense, and Lou Williams looks like he’s setting up for a slip screen pick-and-pop. After Williams slips the screen, Lavoy Allen sets a screen as Williams curls to the basket. Taj Gibson is concerned with Iguodala off the dribble and Luol Deng stays attached to Thaddeus Young underneath the basket. Neither of them are able to help as Iguodala shows off his passing ability with an alley oop to Williams.

The Knicks Pay the Price for Ignoring Taj Gibson

The Chicago Bulls might not receive much recognition on the offensive end of the floor, but they have the third most efficient offense in the NBA. Part of the reason they aren’t viewed as an elite offensive team is because their efficiency is built on the “sneaky” strengths that get teams extra possessions.  The Bulls have the highest offensive rebounding rate and the 6th lowest turnover rate in the NBA.  Against the Knicks on Monday night, Taj Gibson helped seal the game in the fourth quarter by hitting the offensive boards and stealing those extra possessions.  Let’s take a look at how it happened.
