Research Notes

  • From Elias: Taj Gibson is the first Bulls player with at least 30 points and 5 rebounds off the bench in a playoff game (since starters and subs were first tracked in 1970).

  • Analysis: Since the start of 2010, Thibodeau's first season as head coach, the Bulls have had a league-low 47 games in which they have allowed defensive efficiency of 110 points or higher. The Bulls are now 6-41 in those games (0-10 this season).

  • Taj Gibson scored a game-high 32 points on Sunday, including 20 of the Bulls' 40 points in the first half. He had more points in the paint than the rest of the Bulls combined.

  • The Wizards scored 29 points off of 16 Bulls turnovers, second-most points the Bulls have given up this season (30 vs Heat Oct. 29, 2013). The Wizards also only committed six turnovers, the fewest Bulls forced in a game this season. This helped the Wizards to a 16-2 advantage on fast break points.

  • Trevor Ariza scored playoff career-high 30 points Sunday. In the first four games of the series, the Wizards have been much more efficient with Ariza on the court.--Trevor Ariza was 6-of-9 on catch-and-shoot jumpers Sunday, including 5-of-8 from 3-point range. Ariza has the most catch-and-shoot attempts for the Wizards this postseason, and has made 52.2% overall, 50.0% from 3-point range (rest of Wizards: 42.7% overall, 40.0% from beyond the arc).

  • Taj Gibson went 13-of-16 from the field today against the Wizards, making 81.3% of his shots. He's the first player in any playoff game to shoot at least 80 percent from the field while attempting at least 16 shots since Elton Brand did it for the Clippers in 2006 (18-of-22, 81.8% vs Suns).Gibson's 13 made field goals were only 5 shy of the 18 total makes by the Bulls' starting lineup, and no other Chicago player made more than 5.
