Coach Tom Thibodeau hopes to run more this season and was pleased with his team's execution on the fast break in the exhibition finale against the Pacers except for a few missed layups.
Derrick Rose and Rip Hamilton give the Bulls one of the fastest backcourts in the league. Center Joakim Noah is as athletic as any center in the league, which should give the Bulls an edge when they do run.
"Some teams will have three guys back so you have to flow into your secondary action," Thibodeau said. "We have to make sure we take care of that. We have to have Joakim run the floor the entire game. Same with Carlos [Boozer]. Our bigs have to get down the floor. You need more than just one guy running all the time. The bigs have to do a better job of running the floor.
"We have to get everybody committed to running. Not just one guy. Our whole team has to run."
