Woes continue for the Bulls as they lose again.
The Chicago Bulls endured a miserable night on Thursday, losing 99-89 to the Portland Trail Blazers at the United Center.
The return from injury of Kirk Hinrich and Taj Gibson wasn’t enough for the Bulls, who now slip to 36-31 for the season and remain in sixth spot in the Eastern Conference.
In contrast it was a welcome victory for Portland, only their 10th on the road so far this season, as they completed the series win over Chicago.
Damian Lillard finished with 24 points, while LaMarcus Aldridge had a game-high 28 points to led the Trail Blazers to victory.
It was another desperate offensive show from the Bulls, who need star point guard Derrick Rose to return in order to lift them. However, as has been the case for several weeks, in a pre-match interview Rose gave no indication that he would be returning immediately.
Portland travel to Atlanta to face the Hawks on Friday, while the Bulls will hope to bounce back when host the Indiana Pacers on Saturday.
