Counting Game 1, the Bulls have been outrebounded 11 times in their last 19 games with one tie.
Thibs: “We’re a team that normally doesn’t foul, so that’s concerning.” Wizards' 35 FTAs were second-most by Bulls opponent this season.
Bulls were 9-0 following losses until Game 1, which followed regular-season finale L in Charlotte. 1st time 2 straight Ls since Feb. 1-3.
Thibs: "There’s an appropriate time to make a point to an official if you think he missed something but you have to wait for a dead ball."
Thibodeau: "Offensively, if you feel like you’re driving the ball and not getting calls, you have to make sure you drive it harder."
Thibs jokes he doesn't want to talk about Noah's DPOY award until appropriate time. Says he wants to save his money. Press conference at 4
