Bulls fall to No. 24 in ESPN’s NBA Power Rankings for Week 12

The Chicago Bulls currently sit at 16-21 as the No. 11 seed in the Eastern Conference following a 145-134 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers as Donovan Mitchell dropped 71 points on their heads.

ESPN’s NBA experts update their NBA Power Rankings every week, which landed the Bulls at No. 24 for Week 12, falling one spot from last week’s ranking.

Jamal Collier explains:

After winning on buzzer-beaters against the Hawks and Knicks a few weeks ago, the Bulls suffered back-to-back close losses to the Cavs this week — on a DeMar DeRozan missed jumper at the buzzer and when Donovan Mitchell’s 71-point game erased a 21-point Chicago lead.

The roller coaster of their season continues as the Bulls have a tough upcoming schedule, taking on the Nets, 76ers, Jazz, and Celtics in the next four games.
