Noah’s Career Night Boosts Bulls

Posted By Logan Williams On Dec 8 2012 @ 12:34 am In Chicago Bulls | No Comments

Joakim Noah had a monster night in the Bulls 108-104 win
over the Pistons Friday night with 30 points to go along with 23 rebounds
setting career highs in both categories to will the team to the victory. Joakim
Noah provided the energy the Bulls needed because they were getting outplayed
for most of the first half but Noah stepped up as did the rest of the starters
on a night where the bench only had 9 of the Bulls 108 points. The showing by
the bench once again highlights the rough spot for the Bulls and even though
they got the win tonight the Bulls are eventually going to need their bench to
step up because not every night will you have every starter score in double
figures. Aside from Noah the Bulls got solid performances from Carlos Boozer
with 24 points to go along with 6 rebounds, as well as Luol Deng and Marco
Belinelli who both chipped in 16 points, and the fifth starter to score double
figures was Kirk Hinrich with 13 points. The Bulls as a team were on fire tonight
as they shot a ridiculous 52.4% (43-82) from the floor and were also solid from
the line shooting 81% (17-21). This was a game where both teams shot over 51%
as the Pistons shot 51.4% (36-70) from the field which on any other night would
have probably been good enough to get the Pistons the victory but the Bulls
were just able to hit more shots and fight back from a 17 point deficit they
faced in the second quarter.

The Bulls improved to 10-8 on the season including 5-3 on
the road during this young season and I am sure they are hoping that they can
get similar production from their starters every night now since their bench
has been inconsistent and pretty much terrible this season. The Bulls are still
in search of the one player to lead and be a consistent scorer with Derrick
Rose out and maybe they can try to involve Noah more in the game plan to help
fill the void. Noah was able to put up 30 points and as Pistons coach Lawrence
Frank noted after the game it was without having a single play run for him.
