Unlike the Milwaukee Bucks, the Bulls are directly on the path that I thought they would take. After 3 games the Bulls are 2-1, and their extrapolated 82 game win path is 52.8 wins and 29.2 losses (according to MWS48) or 51.9 wins and 30.1 losses (according to Pythagorean calculation). That’s about what I projected for them. They had a huge win last night over the very tough Portland Trailblazers.
Below is the Chicago Bulls win breakdown. I did the same thing I did with the Bucks, stretching each player’s performance and minutes so far over an 82 game, 19780 minute season. As you can see, despite the massive amount of shots he’s taken, PG Derrick Rose is not the team leader in wins produced.
