Bulls need to get to .500 soon.
This year the Bulls can't afford to play catch up all year like they had done so last year. Last season they won 12 of their last 14 games and still ended up with only a .500 record. It seems like the team always plays like they mean it at the end of the season, while they really should play more consistanly in the beginning to ensure a play off berth sooner than later. The team should be at least three to four games over .500 by the end of December, especially since it's the easiest month for the Bulls. Worst case scenario the Bulls finish off 16-15, but them being 18-13 before January is very possible. I think asking for any better would be too much at this point early in the season.
