What to Watch For

  • Um, well, I don’t have much. Let’s stay healthy, I guess! The Bulls have decided to head into this game with an empty injury report (except Lonzo Ball), but the expectation isn’t for the starters to play many minutes.
  • Speaking of Vooch, let’s give him a little golfer’s clap (yes, I am writing this post from a golf trip, why do you ask?). Vucevic was in the lineup last time out against Dallas and today against Detroit because he wants to play all 82 games for the first time in his career. With today’s NBA being the era of load management and taking games off, there’s something pretty cool about not only Vooch playing all 82 games, but insisting on staying in the lineup these last two nights because it’s so important to him.

  • It feels like I’m basically just becoming a Coby White fan blogger at this point, but damn he was good again in Dallas! 24 points, 11 assists, and 7 rebounds on 10-17 shooting against the Mavs. I’m sure this won’t backfire at all, but I’ve seen enough. It’s time to extend him in the offseason and give him the first crack at starting PG next season. He’s earned it. He’s been phenomenal the last month or two and seems to have finally taken the next step in his development.

(Elias: Agree on Coby White being awesome and trying to extend him. Not sure I agree with the starting point guard point, but he might be worth another try if the Bulls can’t find anyone in the offseason).
