The chemistry in the Chicago Bulls team is exemplary, as the players are enjoying their time together on and off the court. It has been a while since the fans have seen this level of success, and are being rewarded for their continued patience.
The Bulls hosted the Denver Nuggets last night with a significantly depleted squad. Both DeMar DeRozan and Alex Caruso were out due to health protocols and a hamstring injury, respectively. Regardless, the Bulls clinched the victory with an impressive second-half run.
Javonte Green, who is also observing the league's health and safety protocol, enjoyed the game, highlighting Lonzo Ball's strong shooting night. The athletic wing took to Twitter to show how impressed he was with Lonzo's shooting, supporting his argument with a hilarious picture.
Zo has revamped his game since he joined the Bulls, and has shown improvement shooting the ball. He was used as a catch-and-shoot guy with the New Orleans Pelicans last season but has gone back to his favored role, orchestrating the offense.
Defensively, he has also been one of the best on the Bulls team. He is playing a brand of basketball that he enjoys and is effective.
The Bulls won their last game against the Nuggets 109-97. Zach LaVine was the standout performer in the absence of DeRozan, registering 32 points, 3 rebounds, and 8 assists. But in all, Lonzo's shooting was the most impressive. He knocked down four three-pointers in eight attempts and finished the game with 20 points. Added to that were 10 rebounds, 4 assists, and 4 blocks.
The Bulls will go on a two-game road trip and will face off against the Cleveland Cavaliers and Miami Heat before returning to United Center on December 14. Zo's shooting will be significant if they are to win on the road, especially without DeRozan. The Bulls are currently ranked second with a 17-8 record behind the Brooklyn Nets.
