Champs

Chris Duhon probably wasn't supposed to start the season like this. Duhon was supposed to have slid into a slot as Chicago's backup point guard by now while Kirk Hinrich came into his own and Ben Gordon cracked the starting lineup after a summer spent working his way into shape. Instead, Hinrich has leveled off, Gordon has struggled to score and Duhon has held it all together. After racking up a triple-double in the Bulls' season opener, Duhon has played consistently well this season, culminating in last week's averages of 16.7 points (on 61 percent from the floor), seven assists and 1.3 steals.

After a rough start, Duhon's Bulls have won three straight, including an impressive W in San Antonio, to improve their record to 6-5, the sixth-best mark in the East. Tyson Chandler has re-established himself as a dominant force on defense, able stay in front of all who dare enter his lane, while also able to hustle to the weak side in time to pull down a rebound off an errant shot he contested. Hinrich, while short of producing a breakout campaign, has been steady, and Gordon is starting to find his shooting touch again. Knicks import Michael Sweetney looks like a rock in the low post.



nice to make the "champs" section and not the "chumps"! :biggrin:
