Here was my reaction when the final buzzer sounded:
The Los Angeles Clippers are title contenders and the Chicago Bulls are not. I think that probably best sums up what happened in tonight’s game.
After a horrendous start where Daniel Gafford had vaseline on his hands (*this has not been fact-checked) and committed four-straight turnovers, the Bulls manage to get it together. Coby White carried his momentum over from the 30-point performance he posted on Wednesday, Zach LaVine did Zach LaVine things, and Tomas Satoransky provided a season-best performance off the bench. For roughly two and a half quarters, the Bulls legitimately kept things interesting, but then they simply looked like the inferior team they happen to be.
The Clippers finished the night with a 58.1 percent performance from the field and a 43.3 percent from downtown. Kawhi Leonard looked like a robot programmed to laugh awkwardly and drain mid-range buckets, shooting 14-21 from the field on his way to 33 points.
Yeah, not the best way to start a weekend of love, but it is what it is. Onto Indiana (yikes).
