Chicago Bulls fade in latest Bleacher Report’s weekly NBA power rankings

The Chicago Bulls had been enjoying some success in recent weeks, but hit a bit of a rough patch in terms of their play last week. A pair of road losses has the Bulls slipping in the latest Bleacher Report weekly NBA power rankings, with Andy Bailey citing that slippage as to what has Chicago dropping from No. 20 to No. 21 this week.

“The Chicago Bulls are about as ho-hum as NBA teams get,” writes Bailey. “After closing the week with back-to-back road losses, they’re 2-2 in their last four, 3-3 in their last six and 6-6 in their last 12. Very Even Steven.”

“That, of course, shouldn’t throw the Bulls off what this entire season has been indicating they should do,” adds the B/R analyst.

“It’s past time for Chicago to get whatever it can for DeMar DeRozan, Zach LaVine and Nikola Vucevic and step into a new era with Coby White and as much draft capital as it can accumulate,” writes Bailey.

Will the Bulls make a move at the deadline to draw their future plans into sharper relief? Fans can only wait and hope — but with Feb. 8 not far in the future, the wait will at least be a brief one.
