Bulls make hot start despite Covid, injuries

To many, the Chicago Bulls have been a huge surprise through the first half of the NBA season.

The offseason additions of veteran guard DeMar DeRozan, Lonzo Ball and Alex Caruso have helped shape this young team into a title contender.

DeRozan has been playing one of his best seasons in the NBA this year and plays an intriguing part in their title hopes.  Although this season has been chaotic to say the least, with players out due to injuries and Covid Health & Safety Protocol, the Bulls have been able to whether the storm well, and they are currently sitting near the top of the Easter Conference halfway through the season.

Injuries to other teams have helped the Bulls blow past opponents; however, the Bulls now have to contend with injuries on their own roster.

If the Bulls can play up to their potential and stay healthy for the rest of the year, then they will put themselves in a good position to make a deep playoff run.

With offensive juggernauts like the Nets, Bucks, and Heat posing as potential matchups in the later rounds of the playoffs, only time will tell if the Bulls can carry on their regular season success to the playoffs. But with the team looking its best since the Derrick Rose era in Chicago, fans have a lot to look forward to for the rest of the season and the next couple of years
