The CHGO Bulls crew break down the Bulls 145-134 overtime loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday night. Donovan Mitchell went nuts, scoring a career-high and NBA history-making 71 points. He got some help from the officials, who called LOTS of fouls. But it was the Bulls who coughed up a 21 point lead, and completely fell apart in overtime. Plus, Patrick Williams made a crucial mistake at the end of regulation, failing to box out Mitchell after his intentionally missed free throw. Matt, Big Dave and Will discuss where the fault lies in this loss. Plus, is this the new low point of the season? The guys wrap up by asking the question on every Bulls fan’s mind: what are Arturas Karnisovas and Marc Eversley thinking as they watch this, and what is their plan as we near the midseason trade deadline?
