How well the Bulls are doing. Little by little moving away from the hype From the first days, the Chicagoans are showing that they are a good team in the face of every challenge that comes their way. Last night it was time to go to the Staples Center to fight with the Clippers, a team that came together with seven consecutive victories. They couldn’t get the eighth. The pair formed by DeMar DeRozan and Zach LaVine combined to score 64 points and the Illinois men prevailed in California 90-100.
We fight and we fight. Everyone who entered the field helped. It was a match in which everyone played their part. So yeah, I’m happy with the way we defended tonight, ”says Billy Donovan.
It is normal for the head coach of the Bulls be happy. While DeRozan went to 35 points and LaVine achieved 29, the rival duo formed by Paul George and Reggie Jackson remained at 11 of 42 in shots from the field; that is to say, little more than 25 percent of correctness. The Los Angeles All-Star forward would end his performance with 27 points and 11 rebounds, but he was not satisfied at all.
“I couldn’t make shots, I just couldn’t get them in. There were a lot of pitches that practically got out of hand. I found good positions, it just wasn’t my night, ”explains George.
Despite the wide difference in shooting from the field (44.2% for the Bulls and 35.8% for the Clippers), the game had a moment when it seemed to fall to either side. Donovan’s got off to a better start. At the end of the first quarter they won by 13 points and until the beginning of the last period they had incomes that were around ten points. Such a situation did not stop the Californians, who gritted their teeth until they were able to get ahead (78-77 with 10 minutes remaining). There they ran out of gasoline. The visitors pressed again and closed the game.
Our boys got tired. I was wrong and put some guys in for many minutes… This loss, and anything about it, is my own. Now it’s time to start a new winning streak, “says Tyronn Lue, Clippers head coach.
Regresa Coby White
Chicago is in luck. With a balance of 9-4, he is in the first places of the Eastern Conference, a fantastic scenario to which they must now add the return of Coby White. The guard, who has not made his debut this course after undergoing shoulder surgery, is ready to return; as Billy Donovan has confirmed when ensuring that he has been authorized to have minutes in the team’s next game against the Lakers. Yes, the best Bulls of recent years add another weapon to their arsenal.
