Chicago Bulls Getting Inside 2008-11-30

Chicago Bulls Getting Inside 2008-11-30
The Bulls' annual "circus" road trip, which coincides with the circus moving into the United Center each November around Thanksgiving, has not been the greatest show on earth since the championship era ended.

From 1999-2004, the Bulls lost 37 straight games on the trip and only once in the past nine seasons did they win more than a single game away from home.

So finishing the Western Conference portion of the journey with a 2-4 record is not a bad scenario at all for the Bulls. Already this season, the Bulls have played five of the six division leaders on the road. So a 7-9 record during a brutal stretch of the schedule doesn't seem so bad.

The Bulls returned home following Wednesday's loss to San Antonio, but still have one more stop before the trip is complete. They will practice twice at the Berto Center before visiting Philadelphia on Sunday.

"Overall, the guys battled," coach Vinny Del Negro said after losing to the Spurs. "Now we have to go home, get some rest and get our legs under us a little bit. I think our guys got a little fatigued (in the fourth quarter)."

Against the 76ers, the Bulls will get their first look at forward Elton Brand in his new home. Brand was the Bulls' last No. 1 overall draft pick before Derrick Rose, but was traded to the Clippers for Tyson Chandler after two seasons.

SPURS 98, BULLS 88: Just when the Bulls seemed to take control by opening a 9-point lead in the third quarter, San Antonio turned the game around and posted a 98-88 victory on Wednesday at the AT&T Center. Ben Gordon (23 points) and Drew Gooden (20 points) produced 14 straight points for the Bulls to build the 67-58 lead with 5:37 left in the third. Then the Spurs closed the quarter with an 18-4 run and opened the fourth by outscoring the visitors 13-2. San Antonio's supporting cast did much of the damage, with Matt Bonner and Ime Udoka knocking down 3 baskets from three-point range in the third quarter, while rookie guard George Hill scored 12 of his 19 points in the fourth.
