Chicago Bulls Head Coach Billy Donovan Blames the Team’s Defense After Tough Loss to Timberwolves

Chicago Bulls

Chicago Bulls faced one of their worst losses of the season against the Minnesota Timberwolves yesterday. However, it seems the Bulls’ defense is responsible for this loss, as Coach Billy Donovan indicated their significant defensive drawbacks.

The Timberwolves are usually remaining in the bottom three when they are measured on every significant defensive metric. On the other Bulls are in the tenth position in the point table and have an impressive offense. Still, they have failed to snap a win against the worst team of the NBA. Therefore, it is the most embarrassing loss for bulls.

Chicago Bulls Head Coach Billy Donovan appeared in a post-game interview where he agreed about the team’s defensive drawbacks. He also thinks that the Bulls are totally capable of covering up their defensive downsides. “I just feel like we got to trust each other and have each other’s back on the defensive end. I think we’re capable of that. It’s just one of those things, we’ve got to work on it,” Donovan said about the future prospect.

Chicago Bulls plan on winning

The loss against Timberwolves has attacked the Bulls’ confidence level. Hence, they are planning to change their strategies, and they need to improve in different parts of their playing. “We got a lot of work ahead of us, I’ll tell you that,” the head coach conveyed.

They will need to improve a lot more than their current position. They used to work on their progress and strides, but they stopped working on their improvements. Therefore, they will keep “improving and trying to get better” in their playing styles.

There is no way that Bull can skirt around this loss. Chicago Bulls are standing at the borderline, and they cannot afford to keep losing like that. Otherwise, they may slip from the playoff.
