The Losing Streak Ends As a Road Trip Begins
The Chicago Bulls snapped their four game skid Monday night with a win at home against the Boston Celtics. The Bulls didn’t just snap their own losing streak, but they also ended Boston’s nine game winning streak. DeMar DeRozan continued his dominance against the Celtics this season, dropping 28 points in the victory. Zach LaVine also added 22 points in a bonce back performance, and Patrick Williams was the third-highest scorer with 17 points. Unfortunately for the Bulls, they will not play in the United Center again until December 7th. Wednesday night, the Chicago Bulls will begin a 6 game road trip starting in Milwaukee. The road trip features games against Western Conference teams that are beginning to put together wins. The Jazz, Suns, Kings, and the defending champion Warriors are a few of the opponents that the Bulls will have to take on in their road trip.
Patrick Williams Shows His Potential
The Bulls finally got the performance they were waiting for from Patrick Williams. Williams showed his aggressiveness offensively, creating his own shots, and scoring when the Bulls needed him to. Williams scored 17 points shooting 6-9 from the field, and 3-4 from the 3 point line. Not only did he produce offensively, but he also played excellent defense. In the NBA, it’s common for players to produce offensively, but struggle defensively. That makes being a two-way player a key trait in the NBA. If Patrick Williams is able to consistently provide for the Bulls offensively, while playing elite defense, he’ll have a presence in the league for years to come.
