Losing to the Nets—at home, no less!—definitely wasn't how the Bulls wanted to end things last week. But, all in all, things still went well for them when you consider that they had to play all week (again!) without the benefit of having Derrick Rose in the lineup because of back spasms. Fortunately, though, they've only got two games this week and then they have a long break for All-Star Weekend. So, the goal for this week is to win at least one of their games, head into the break on a high note, and then get healthy. If they can do that, they're set up nicely for the second half of the season.—Chris Yuscavage
