One might imagine that 10-36 is a better mark than 15-67, but the
Bulls' average score is 85.7-94.4, compared to 87.5-96.6 last year.
No significant change in the scoring.
Ron Artest is suddenly a star this year. Brad Miller and Marcus
Fizer are suddenly serious players. Mercer and Hoiberg have dropped
off, but Anthony has come along, with Oakley, while nobody
significant has been dumped.
With the coaching change, I would agree "the Bulls are better"; but
with Brand they might actually be contending.
