VIDEO: Taj Gibson delivers the boom in preseason vs. Pacers

Adding Mike Dunleavy for ridiculously cheap was an underrated move by the Bulls this year. Not only can Dunleavy shoot exceptionally well, but he's a good defender and has some maneuverability.

Notice the nice job coming around the screen, and the recognition of the lane instead of just hoisting. That gap's going to shorten in the regular season as guys get used to busting screens, but still, it's a great move and great pass by Dunleavy. And a monster slam by Gibson.

It's also good to see Gibson moving this well after a year he dealt with knee and ankle injuries the entire season.
