Taking the Bulls By the Numbers: Road Warriors

After their game on Sunday the 12th against the Boston Celtics, the Chicago Bulls will have played 30 games, nearly half of their 66 game slate, and more remarkably, two-thirds of those contests will have been on the road.  The team opened the season with four games with a four game in six night California road trip, it is presently on a 10 game in 15 day trip.    This hasn’t affected their standing as they are 10-5 on the road, the best mark in the Association.  Among playoff caliber teams, only the Indiana Pacers, the Bulls division rival, have played such a preponderance of games on away from home.

The takeaway from this is that if the Bulls continue to win at this kind of clip on the road, then they will be a near lock for the #1 seed in the Eastern Conference.  Not that that mattered last season but it’s always better to have game one and game seven of a playoff series on your home floor.


About jmartin437

I've worked in and around the world of high end cheese for 27 years. I've been everything from a department manager who hired and fired and trained staffs to a weekend warrior who shows up ties on an apron the middle of a rush and talks to customers and cleans up the place. I enjoy it all, and I especially like my current situation conducting informal seminars about cheese at area bars and in class at the 92nd St. Y. The current schedule is always up at thejoyofcheese.blogspot.com. In addition I conduct private events that are perfect to lead off birthday parties for foodies and sommeliers and also they make great entertainment for corporate team building events and associates meetings at law firms. In addition, I've been a freelance journalist for 27 years. Currently my profiles of leading musicians and filmmakers appear in the Wall Street Journal and www.theroot.com. I also wrote about sports for the Root, and for five loooong years, which included the entirety of the Isiah Thomas Knicks era, I wrote about the NBA for the New York Sun. I enjoyed writing about basketball so much that I now do it here at rotations for free.
