Chicago’s biggest enemy is the human body

Time isn’t the friend of this M.A.S.H unit known as the Chicago Bulls. There are six games left in the regular season and there are more unhealthy bodies than healthy ones.

Game Recap: Bulls 100, Celtics 89

Player of the Game: Let’s go ahead and get this over with up front: Joakim Noah owned this game. Noah usually performs well against the Celtics and openly dislikes Boston’s Kevin Garnett.
