After it looked like the Bulls were letting the bottom fall out of their Eastern Conference playoff hopes, things have taken quite the turn over the past 2 weeks.
They look to continues their push when they welcome in the Sacramento Kings to the United Center on Monday night.
The Kings have let the bottom fall out and they are likely going to miss the playoffs after being in the race for nearly 3/4 of the season.
Sacramento once held onto a playoff spot, but things have certainly taken a turn for the worst since then as they are now pretty much in do or die mode, meaning they have to win almost every, if not every, game to get in.
The Kings have slipped to 11th place, 7.5 games off the pace for the 8th spot.
The troubles stemmed from lack of production defensively, but the the offense really had nobody contribute besides DeMarcus Cousins.
On the defensive end, the Kings allow an NBA worst 109.6 points per game. Things have been even worse than that at times, as they typically fail to close out on shooters and their lack of height really hurts them inside.
The Bulls had looked like they were going to fall completely out of the race after the injuries continued to pile up.
However, things have taken a change and now after winning the first 2 home games in a 4 game stand, the Bulls sit tied for that 8th spot with the Pistons. Chicago is actually just 5.0 games back of the 3rd spot, as the East is completely crowded, giving every team a chance to either make a move, or fall out.
While the Bulls had Jimmy Butler and Derrick Rose out, it was the veteran Pau Gasol who was stepping up on a nightly basis, just giving this team a chance.
However, Gasol has now missed 4 straight games, but Taj Gibson has stepped up in his place. Gibson has 3 double-doubles over his past 7 games and recorded 15 points and 10 rebounds in the win over the Utah. Look for him to be a major key in this one as Gasol is likely out again.
