Charlotte Hornets fall to the Chicago Bulls in overtime, 119-111

Charlotte Hornets fall to the Chicago Bulls in overtime, 119-111”

How have the Hornets managed to lose twice to a Chicago Bulls team with four total victories this season? On Friday night, they kept their poise and finished strong. Providing 20 points, 6 rebounds, and 12 assists, along with 3 steals, Dunn was a key reason for this victory. As has been the case for practically the entire season, Lauri looks like the Bulls best player. "He was awesome down the stretch, making big, clutch plays for us". He's projected for 10.3 rebounds and 31.6 FD points in that one. The Bulls - these Bulls, not the champions Hornets owner Michael Jordan once made famous - scored 56 points in the paint. The Bulls outscored the Hornets 13-5 in the overtime period.

At a price of $7,200, Howard's 26.4 FanDuel points failed to meet 5x value for the third straight game. Chicago's best player, Lauri Markkanen, is a 20-year-old rookie that wasn't even selected in the top-six of this year's draft.

We should know by the end of December whether the Hornets are going anywhere. Walker made a pair of free throws with 5.3 seconds left to force overtime in a back-and-forth game that featured 17 lead changes and 20 ties.

The extra period belonged to the Bulls, who never trailed. "Hopefully those guys will be OK because we got some home games coming up and we'll need them".

"We just didn't make enough plays down the stretch". So we have to regroup and get ready for tomorrow. "It felt good, and we should start something new".

Right, scoring. Especially in the fourth quarter, Graham showed flashes of offense that has to be encouraging both for Silas and loyal Hornets fans. Elite defensive teams do not give up 50-plus points in the lane.

Finally, after nearly a month and a half out of commission due to injuries suffered in the Bobby Portis practice fight, Nikola Mirotic made his return on Friday night. They have talented veterans, such as Kemba Walker, Dwight Howard, Jeremy Lamb, Nic Batum, Frank Kaminsky, Marvin Williams, and Cody Zeller (though he's now out for a while with a torn meniscus). "At the beginning of the second quarter we weren't getting the ball moving offensively and playing with the right pace", associate head coach Stephen Silas told the media.

In their next outing, the Hornets will host the Los Angeles Lakers in the second night of a back-to-back. "Guys are going to have to come off the bench and play more minutes than usual". They will return home to host NY on Saturday.
