The Chicago Bulls had three consecutive wins just a few days ago, taking down the Golden State Warriors, Detroit Pistons, and Atlanta Hawks.
That meant the team was getting closer and closer to evening their record and hitting .500 again.
Bulls had a chance to get back to .500 this week, instead they dropped back to back games to Indiana and Charlotte

But as Jamal Collier pointed out, the Bulls dropped the ball and lost back-to-back games against the Indiana Pacers and Charlotte Hornets.
The team is now 22-26 and struggling at 11th place in the East.
Thursday night’s defeat at the hands of the Hornets was most concerning because it happened even with DeMar DeRozan and Zach LaVine on the floor playing hard.
DeRozan scored 28 while LaVine did 18.
Meanwhile, Patrick Williams scored 15, while Ayo Dosunmu and Nikola Vucevic put up 12 each.
In the previous game against the Pacers, DeRozan and LaVine were also solid with 33 and 14 respectively, and they still lost.
The Bulls are floundering and struggling to get a solid footing in the East.
This is leading many to question what the team will do next and what sort of changes they will make.
There are multiple players within the roster who might be departing shortly before the trade deadline.
And head coach Billy Donovan might be losing his job too, as the front office has demanded a lot from him and his squad has repeatedly come up short.
The bottom line is that the Bulls will likely be changing in the weeks and months ahead.
If the rest of the season plays out poorly, there is no way the organization will let things stand as they are.
Will names as big as DeRozan or LaVine be leaving?
At this point, anything is possible in order to rebuild this team and make it competitive again.NEXT: The Bulls Might Send Away A Beloved Star
