Bulls in good spot at All-Star break _ first place
Joakim Noah and Carlos Boozer seem to be feeding off each other more lately after they missed significant time last season because of injuries, and Bulls players insist they’re more comfortable with each other and with Thibodeau than they were a year ago.
They’ve had time together. They experienced highs and lows last season _ the Bulls‘ best since the 1990s championship era. They raised expectations _ sent them soaring, actually _ only to come up short against the Heat. And now, they’re looking for more.
Are they better than they were last season?
“We’d like to think so,” Deng said.
Are they good enough to win the Eastern Conference?
“All I know is, with what we have this year, I don’t feel like we’ve peaked yet,” Noah said. “We have to take it up another notch to win a championship.”
