Bulls 151, Bucks 135: What Happens When Both Teams Try to Lose

4/15/08 in NBA   |   CriticalFanatic   |   respect

It was evident from the outset that both teams had a similar gameplan going into last night's contest in Milwaukee -- play zero defense, hopefully lose to boost draft stock.

Two negatives equaled a boatload of points for two teams that very rarely reach triple digits.

Bulls 151, Bucks 135. Chicago even sucks at tanking. Previously tied with the Charlotte Bobcats, the Bulls have now taken themselves out of the No. 8 spot in the Draft Lottery.

How laughable was the game? The Bulls scored 81 points in the first, more than their total output in 10 games this season. Ramon Sessions had 24 assists for the Bucks. Even Larry Hughes was 6-for-9 shooting. Chris Duhon scored 22 points and added 15 points. Chicago shot 67%, 30% over their putrid season average.

The season has been so terrible in Chicago, that interim coach Jim Boylan immediately had booze on his mind.
"One fifty-one? I thought that was a rum."
Surely, more tanking exploits will follow in these final two days. Watch as Memphis, New York and the Clippers fight for the No. 4 spot.

Well that made most of the All-Star games look like defensive battles.
