Friedell: Thibs wants Bulls looking inside


"If the Bulls find themselves in the type of situation they did on Wednesday night in the fourth quarter against the Thunder, Tom Thibodeau has given his team a directive to follow for the coming weeks ahead: Get the ball into the paint and see what happens." "Thibodeau's plan would be a lot easier to follow if Carlos Boozer wasn't still out with a broken right pinky, but for the time being Thibodeau doesn't really care how the ball gets there, just that it does. That means that you could see Derrick Rose try to drive into the middle of the floor just as easily as Joakim Noah could handle it on the blocks." Lots of other interesting nuggets in the article, such as why Korver did not/may not see a lot of minutes.
