I Went to a Basketball Game and Took a Few Shots -- Photo Gallery: Chicago Bulls vs. Indiana Pacers, March 24, 2014

I'm rather impressed by--and even proud of--the way the Chicago Bulls have been playing this NBA season.

Most teams who lose their best player--Derrick Rose, a former league MVP--due to injury for the second straight season, and then trade away another key scorer (Luol Deng) would struggle to win very many games. To wit, the Los Angeles Lakers are 23-46 without Kobe Bryant.

But with Joakim Noah continuing to evolve into one of the league's best players, and relatively low draft picks like Taj Gibson and Jimmy Butler performing terrifically, the Bulls stand at 40-31, fourth best in the Eastern Conference.

They are just 1 game behind earning the 3rd seed in the conference playoffs.

So, having not been to a game this season, I was happy to find fairly decent and inexpensive tickets on StubHub for Monday's game against the Indiana Pacers, the team with the best record in the Eastern Conference.

Trailing 34-33 after a low-scoring first half, the Bulls dominated the second and won 89-77.

Including field goals, 3-pointers and free throws, they made 54 shots. Below are a few I took:
