Boozer sits down the stretch

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

An interesting aspect of the Bulls' 88-83 victory in Cleveland Wednesday night was coach Tom Thibodeau opting not to put Carlos Boozer back in the game in the fourth quarter.

When the starters returned about midway through the quarter, Thibodeau elected to go small with Luol Deng playing power forward and Kyle Korver (who was hot at the time) playing small forward.

"I liked Lu at the four just because it gave us another perimeter guy and it also would allow us to do some more switching," Thibodeau said. "That was the main reason for that, and they did a good job on him with their double teams, so it was hard to catch him."

Boozer had just four points and three rebounds in 21 minutes in the game.
