Bulls lose a tough one at home 111-105, playoff hopes fade.

By Sean Mackey

The Bulls blew a really close one on Tuesday night, losing to the Phoenix Suns 111-105. Rose was fantastic with 23 points, 10 assists and 5 rebounds. Noah and Gibson both had great games as well, also racking up double-doubles. The Bulls held a 3 point lead early in the 4th but after a few bad possessions and a three from Channing Frye, the game was over.

This loss put the Bulls 1.5 games behind Toronto. The Bulls would have to be near perfect for the next 9 games or Toronto and Charlotte would have to have an epic collapses if they want to attempt to sneak into the playoffs. Toronto has an easier schedule for the next 4 games making it even more unlikely the Bulls can catch up. Toronto plays an LA Clippers team that has dropped 14 of the last 17.

I hate this time of the year.
