The Chicago Bulls have shown their worst and their best in their last two games, following up a blowout loss with an impressive performance as the team continues to build a new identity under new head coach Fred Hoiberg.
They’ll now look to stay in the win column against a Minnesota Timberwolves team that they’ve beaten in 11 of the last 12 meetings.
The Bulls were one of the best defensive teams in basketball under former head coach Tom Thibodeau, and many questions arose when the team lost to the Charlotte Hornets 130-105, but they followed that performance with a big win.
The Timberwolves go back out on the road after dropping back-to-back games at home.
The franchise hasn’t won its first three road games since 2001. The team has shot just 41.5 percent from the field, and culminating with a season-low point output in a 96-84 loss to the Miami Heat on Thursday.
Andrew Wiggins hit on 5 of 18 shots from the floor for 12 points and Karl-Anthony Towns connected on 3 of 13 shots for six points in that loss to Miami.
For Wiggins, he scored 22 points and hit on 8 of 21 shots in his lone game against Chicago as a rookie.
Against the Hornets, the Bulls allowed 100 points by the end of the third quarter for the first time since 1990, and in the end, gave up the most points they’ve allowed in regulation since a 132-108 loss to the Utah Jazz back in 2010.
Derrick Rose scored only four points on 2-of-8 shooting, but the team followed that up with a 104-98 win in which they limited the Oklahoma City Thunder to a season-low 45.2 percent shooting from the field. Rose scored a team-high and season-high 29 points.

The Bulls have really upped the tempo of their offense under coach Hoiberg, and that has meant higher totals. That’s come at the expense of their highly touted defense.
