” All I can say is the Bulls are back. One night opponent, Tim Hardaway Jr. do not hide his enthusiasm ahead of the start of the season in Chicago cannonball.
On the night, the Illinois franchise won against the Mavs, signing their eighth success of the season in 11 games. This new victory, after that obtained at the expense of the Nets, thus erases the two consecutive defeats conceded against the 76ers.
The Bulls, who had taken advantage of a favorable schedule to sign four straight wins to start, thus keep their good momentum while opponents of a higher standing are linked.
After 11 matches, Chicago is number 1 in the Eastern Conference, tied with Washington, and on the right path to return to the playoffs for the first time since 2017.

Not to mention the remarkable 7/10 from a distance from Lonzo Ball who scored all of his points behind the arc. ” We are moving in the right direction ”, notes the titular leader, who received congratulations from his coach for his address. “It’s a whole new team. We’re trying to build a new culture here. 8 wins – 3 losses, it’s not that bad. ”
