Post Game Wrap-up on the Bulls Vs Phoenix
The Bulls took on Devin Booker, Deandre Ayton and the Phoenix Suns in a Wednesday night matchup. The Bulls WON the game with the score of 124-116.

Zach Lavine led all scorers with 29 points. He’s on a run to get that Most Improved Player award, and it looks like it’s his for the taking. Jabari Parker played a pretty decent game with 20 pts, 13 Rebounds and 8 assists, almost getting him into Triple Double territory.
All in all, a good win for the Bulls who have been on a losing streak lately. Most notable was the presence of DeAndre Ayton, who looks like he’ll grow into a very dominant center in the league after a few years of experience.
Bulls Injury Updates:
It was announced that Denzel Valentine will be out the rest of the season after he gets surgery later next week. He has been scheduled for a full ankle restoration surgery, which Denzel indicated is going to be just what the doctor ordered. He said he’s had ankle issues ever since entering the league, and it will be great to be 100% in the ankle department when he returns next season.
Hopefully Denzel heals up quick and can be back to playing form for the season opener.
Chandler Hutchison missed the Phoenix game due to back spasms, but it looks to be short-term and nothing that will keep him out of any games.
We’ve also got news that both Lauri Markkanen and Kris Dunn have been working out and hitting non-contact portions of practice. It looks like it will be another 2 weeks or so for both of them. There are rumblings that Lauri will be playing with the Windy City Bulls G-League team by late next week to get ready to make his comeback.
We’ll be lucky if Bobby Portis comes back by Christmas, as his injury has not healed as fast as Dunn’s has. I feel bad for Bobby, as it’s a contract year for him and this will mean he’s going to work much harder to get a good deal for next season, which is when you run a huge risk to re-injure yourself, or play in a reserved way so that you don’t injure yourself again. Either way, Bobby has a long uphill climb ahead of him.

Roundtable Discussion
TANK TIME?

So is it time to tank? I think Gar/Pax have probably been watching Duke basketball, as I have all season so far. In my opinion it’s time to submarine this team and hit the tank button. Once again we are in a post-season fight with the Cavs, but this time it’s to see who can suck the most and get the coveted #…

Ep. 50: Tanksgiving

On the latest episode of BullsHQ, host Mark Karantzoulis (@mkhoops) is joined by Will Gottlieb (@wontgottlieb) to review Chicago’s impressive win over the Phoenix Suns. Topics discussed include: Jabari Parker’s best game as a Bull (4:18), Zach LaVine’s impressive return from illness (8:12), Ryan Arcidiacono hustling all over the United Center (10:55), and the battle in the middle between Wendell Carter Jr. and DeAndre Ayton (14:22).  Later in the show, attention turns to if the Bulls are bad (good?) enough to tank (18:40), Denzel Valentine’s season-ending injury (27:30), where the Bulls player figured in ESPN’s Real Plus-Minus release (32:41), and much more. 

Announcement: BullsHQ moving away from SoundCloud

Hello Bulls fans. Just a quick programming note letting you all know that BullsHQ has transitioned away from SoundCloud as its podcasting host to Libsyn. This news is more for those listeners who are used to following and downloading the show via SoundCloud. Going forward, unfortunately new episodes will not be available via SoundCloud. You will be able to go over the back catalogue here on SoundCloud, however all episodes, including all new shows will now be hosted over at Libsyn. In light of this, I’m hoping this doesn’t cause too much drama for those listeners who have supported and downloaded the show via SoundCloud. You can now get BullsHQ over at Libsyn, in addition to iTunes and Stitcher — which should be unaffected by this change — and now Spotify too.
