Enhanced Box Score: Bulls 120, Wizards 119 — January 1, 2022

Chicago Bulls

Happy New Year! Remember this?

Well, how about this…

The Bulls were thoroughly outplayed all night. They were sluggish, sloppy, and effortless all night. But true contenders find ways to win ball games no matter what.

The Bulls turned the ball over 15 times, allowed 72 points in the paint, and scored only six bench points, but they kept it close enough for DeMar DeRozan to continue to build his legacy as Mr. Fourth Quarter in Chicago,

You have to be kidding me. I’m literally speechless.

Big kudos to Coby White, who scored 20 points for the second day in a row and scored double figures in the fourth game in his last five. Zach LaVine scored 35 points for the Bulls in their seventh consecutive victory, and Nikola Vučević logged a double-double again with 22 points and 12 rebounds.

This, folks, is what contenders are made of!
