Beyond The Buzzer:
At 98-94 with under 2 minutes to go, the undermanned Bulls seemed to be gaining momentum on Monday night until a 50/50 ball flew out of bounds and the refs called Indiana ball without hesitation and oddly refused to review the play, drawing criticism from the visiting locker room who ultimately succumbed 111-101.

“What’s the rule? Under two minutes, you’re supposed to review, right? Speaks for itself, man,” he said. “We go out there and play hard, we don’t [act] lazy on calls. We go out and play as hard as we can, and for them not to review it, I just feel like that was being lazy. Not taking anything from the referees because that’s probably one of the hardest jobs to do, officiate the game, but for them not to review it — knowing the rules — that’s just self-explanatory. It shows that either they just didn’t want to do it or they’re just being lazy.

The Chicago Bulls had one of the best benches in the NBA over the last two years, but last off-season, for cap purposes, decided to remake the bench with cheaper options. This involved trading Kyle Korver, letting the Rockets sign Omer Asik and not picking up the team options on CJ Watson and Ronnie Brewer. The Bulls did not believe that they would be contenders, since they...
His numbers don’t speak volumes, 7 points and 5 assists per game, but Kirk Hinrich is the Chicago Bulls’ floor general on both sides of the ball with Derrick Rose sidelined – and he will join Rose in the training room for games for at least one week with an elbow infection that flared up from a previous injury last month.

Monday, February 4th: Bulls @ Pacers, 7:00 ET, NBALP: It’s an eight-game Monday tonight, which is different, but there still aren’t any choices that really stand out as far as probable entertainment value… which is pretty much what I look for in my selections.
