Chicago Bulls to use three day break to practice before Christmas Day game
The Chicago Bulls have lost three-straight games and frustrations are mounting.
Following a loss to the New York Knicks on Saturday, shooting guard Jimmy Butler sounded off to the media about head coach Fred Hoiberg. The Bulls followed that up with a lack-luster performance which resulted in a loss at home to the Brooklyn Nets.
With three days until their Christmas Day game against the red-hot Oklahoma City Thunder, the Bulls will be taking no breaks. Instead, they will use those three days to practice even more according to beat writer K.C. Johnson:
Bulls are practicing all 3 offdays this week as of now. That's not typical.

This is almost nothing new to the Bulls who probably did this a lot under former head coach Tom Thibodeau. So far the Fred Hoiberg experiment hasn’t gone to plan and the Bulls are really looking to turn things around in a much-improved Eastern Conference.
The Bulls and Thunder will tipoff on Christmas Day at 1:30 p.m.
