The city has been seeing so much red over the past few months because the Chicago Bulls are so good. In fact, they are one of the best teams in the entire NBA. They defeated the Atlanta Hawks on Monday night by a final score of 130-118 to extend their winning streak to four. They are now 21-10 on the season which is extremely nice.
This was one of those games where Bulls players put up video game numbers. DeMar DeRozan led the way with 35 points, 10 assists, and five rebounds. Zach LaVine wasn’t far behind as he had 30 points with nine assists and four rebounds to go with a steal. To round out the big three on the night, Nikola Vucuevic had 24 points, 17 rebounds, and six assists to go with four blocks and a steal.
It was a magical night for those guys but Vucevic deserves a little bit of extra love. He was outstanding in this game. It could be argued that this was the best game he has had with the Bulls this season. He got off to a slow start this year but is all the way back now. With him playing like this, the team is flat-out scary.
The four wins in a row came over these Hawks, the Indiana Pacers, Houston Rockets, and Los Angeles Lakers. Every win on this streak has come at home except for last night against the Hawks which was in Atlanta. They have shown that they can beat almost everybody in almost every building. This is has been so fun so far.
The Chicago Bulls are really having an impressive season so far in 2021-22.
The Bulls and Hawks are both coming back to Chicago to play the second half of a home and home. It is a really good chance for the Bulls to add another important win over a team that they should be able to beat anytime (especially right now).
There are going to be some tough ones down the stretch so these wins are extra important. If they are able to stay healthy, they are one of the best teams in the entire NBA. Nobody is crowning them yet but they will be a really hard out once the postseason rolls around.
