LEADING REBOUNDERS: Bulls- Caruso (9), George(11)
LEADING ASSISTS: Bulls- DeRozan and Caruso (5), Clippers- George (4)
CCI STAT OF THE NIGHT: The Bulls forced 20 Clippers turnovers, scoring 25 points off of them.
CCI RECAP: The Bulls made big time plays at crunch time. holding off the Clippers, snapping LAC’s seven-game win streak. DeMar DeRozan, who grew up just 13 miles from the Staples Center in Compton, CA, was spectacular. In his first L.A. appearance in a Bulls uniform, DeRozan scored 35 points, grabbed seven rebounds and dished out five assists. He made 10 of 11 free throws.
Zach LaVine added 29 points and eight rebounds. Alex Caruso made his first start of the season and collected seven points, nine rebounds, five assists and three steals.
Expect a large ovation from the Lakers’ faithful tonight when Caruso is introduced. As is the case at the United Center, Caruso was a huge fan favorite and a favorite within the Lakers organization. I expect the classy Lakers organization to show a video tribute honoring Caruso for his passionate play as a member of the team. The Bulls are certainly thrilled to have him.
The 8-6 Lakers beat the Spurs on Sunday afternoon 114-106 as Anthony Davis scored 19 of his game-high 35 points in the first quarter. Chicago’s Talen Horton-Tucker (Simeon HS) made his season debut, returning from a thumb injury, pouring in 17 points. He is a terrific all-around player.
