It seems like every game, regardless of the quality of opponent, there are stretches where I have to remind myself of regression to the mean and that the opposing team can't keep shooting 95% from the field.  Since it feels like this happens every game...is my irritated fan perception just biased (and this happens with all teams in all games) or is there something legitimately problematic with our defense?  A lot of the times, it even seems like we're playing decent defense with a hand in faces and solid rotations...

What a finish by Smart with the left hand!

31 in the first quarter to the Bulls is embarrassing.

Shemmy upset with Smaht. Wonder who would win in a boxing match.

The perimeter defense is much more suspect than it was earlier in the season. Teams start getting in a rhythm much more.

So, why are we now back to not staggering Al with the second unit at the beginning of the second quarter? Just no consistency whatsoever with these rotations.

Portis has been really good this year.  Rozier was officially a mistake.

How do the Bulls have a better bench than the Celtics?

Theis makes Al largely redundant
