Bulls seeking home game in play-in tourney, visit Pistons

The Chicago Bulls essentially have one thing to play for during the remainder of their schedule.They already know they’ll face Atlanta as the Nos. 9 and 10 seeds in the Eastern Conference play-in tournament. The only thing that hasn’t been decided is which team will host that game.Chicago has done very little to help its cause in recent weeks. The Bulls, who have three regular season games remaining, have gone 3-7 over their last 10 outings.They’ll get a juicy matchup on Thursday when they travel to Detroit to face the woeful Pistons.Chicago (37-42) dropped its regular season home finale 128-117 to the New York Knicks on Tuesday. Coach Billy Donovan was furious at his team for its careless play, which was epitomized during a fastbreak early in the second quarter.Torrey Craig bounced the ball off the backboard, attempting to make a fancy dunk. Andre Drummond, who was trailing the play, thought Craig was setting him up for a slam. Drummond collided with Craig and the ball bounced into the hands of a Knicks rebounder.Craig admitted it was an unnecessary play.”Just wanted to create some excitement, try to give us an edge and create some momentum for us,” he said. “Obviously, I didn’t know Drummond was going to jump out there with me. It was a miscommunication. At the end of the day, I just gotta lay the ball up. I’ll take the blame on that.”Donovan quickly called timeout and ripped into his team.
