Bulls jump to No. 22 in ESPN’s NBA Power Rankings for Week 13

The Chicago Bulls currently sit at 19-23 as the No. 10 seed in the Eastern Conference following a 100-97 crunch time loss against the Washington Wizards on Wednesday night.

ESPN’s NBA experts update their NBA Power Rankings every week, which landed the Bulls at No. 22 for Week 13, jumping two spots from last week’s ranking.

Jamal Collier explains:

The Bulls have started to right the ship lately, winning eight of their past 12 games after a disastrous loss to the Timberwolves. Chicago’s offense has finally woken up and ranks sixth in the NBA in offensive efficiency during that span. Zach LaVine is starting to look like his old self, averaging 26.9 points on 52% shooting (47% from 3) in the past three weeks.

Chicago has played their best basketball of the season over the last few weeks, but the recent injury to DeMar DeRozan could hinder their play-in chances if he’s out for several games heading into the trade deadline.
