That’s a Team-Effort, Fourth-Quarter Comeback: Bulls 110, Spurs 109

Chicago Bulls

Well, that was a weird game.

The Chicago Bulls somehow pulled out a victory tonight against the San Antonio Spurs with a final score of 110-109. In the midst of a pretty messy game, the Bulls were able to bounce back from an incredibly poor 3rd quarter (shocker, I know), outscoring the Spurs 35-24 in the final frame.

Watch the pretty wild comeback here:

If you watch any of it, make sure to fast-forward to the last two possessions. LaVine drew the foul to take the lead at the free-throw line, and then the Bulls fouled DeMar DeRozan on the Spurs game-tying shot attempt. DeRozan missed the second shot, the put-back, and the Bulls won.

While Zach LaVine continued his heroic ways, tonight’s game truly felt like a team effort.

Seven Bulls scored in double figures, including all five of the Bulls starters. Denzel Valentine single-handedly kept the Bulls in the game down the stretch, scoring 16 points off the bench with 4 rebounds, and 3 assists. He finished the game with a team-high +19, and the next closest was Luke Kornet (who had 12 points and 9 rebounds) with a +12.

The win meant Boylen’s second victory over his former boss, Gregg Popovich.

As I said, this was one heck of a weird game … weird, but kind of fun.

More tomorrow!
