What to Watch For …

•   It was the tale of two halves for Patrick Williams on Monday night. The Bulls second-year stud got off to a dominant start against the Pelicans with a near double-double in the first two quarters, but he proceeded to come off the locker room ice-cold, finishing the game with an 0-7 shooting performance and five personal fouls. We might be able to chalk up some of that disastrous play in the final two frames to his fatigue. The dude looked gassed near the end of his first competitive action since May, and he finished with a game-high 35 minutes of action. With that in mind, it will be interesting to see how long head coach Damian Cotter leaves him out there tonight. While I’m sure Williams’ young legs are ready to go, there is no need to ask for too much in Summer League.

•   How Williams does bounce back from this rocky second half should be telling, though. At times last season, we could see him disappear on the offensive end after a mishap, and part of his development has got to be to have a shorter memory. I look forward to seeing a similarly aggressive Williams when he is on the floor tonight.

•   Ayo Dosunmu underwhelmed in his first professional game (but that’s totally okay because it’s Summer League!). With Devon Dotson bringing the ball up the floor and much of the offense running through Williams or Simonovic, it was clearly hard for Dosunmu to find his niche. I’ll be curious to see if he can get the ball in his hands a bit more and establish himself as a playmaking threat. I also would not hate to see him get more of an opportunity to create his own shot in the halfcourt. A smooth and lengthy ballhandler with a great midrange jumper, Dosunmu knows how to give defenders a hard time off the dribble.

•   Former Dallas Mavericks’ second-rounder Tyler Bey only played 9 minutes in the Bulls’ first game. An athletic freak who feels like he could be in the running for a two-way contract around the league, I would expect him to get more clock tonight.
