Bulls vs Cavs Recap
The Bulls played the Cleveland Cavs tonight. The Bulls XXX the game by the score of 117 to 111. It seemed to be the Tristan Thompson vs Otto Porter show for the first half. The Bulls maintained a steady 8-10 point lead and let the Cavs get back right before halftime.
The 3rd quarter featured a lot more back and forth, with the Bulls and Cavs trading leads on several series and exchanges.
In the 4th, Tristan Thompson took over for the Bulls/Cavs and sealed the game down the final 2-minute stretch, closing out the game with 23 points 10 rebounds, 5 blocks.
Kevin Love had 17 points, 20 rebounds and 6 assists for the Cavs.
For the Bulls it seems like we’re calling the storage armory and getting out the TANK.. ALREADY.
Lauri Markkanen had 16 points and 8 rebounds
Otto Porter Jr had 15 points 5 rebounds and 3 assists and for a long stretch seemed like he was the only Bull really trying hard out there.
Thad Young played well in the first 3 quarters but became a liability down the stretch.
What is Luke Kornet doing Granted he had 9 points on 4-6 shooting, but just 2 rebounds for a 7 foot 1 guy?
Coby White had only 8 points in 20 minutes on the floor. Shooting just 3 for 12 and only 1 assists.
Team Performance
The Bulls are -57 rebounding through 5 games, the second-worst rebounding margin through 5 games in the last 7 NBA seasons
Tomas Satoransky and Kris Dunn are a combined 16-of-51 overall and 2-of-16 from 3 to start the season.
Lauri seems to be less and less of a driving playmaker in the games this season. 
Zach said he was mad that they were pissing away games and that they should have a flipped record of 3-1 (yesterday) right now.. And he goes out and basically shits the bed in Cleveland on 6-14 shooting, no rebounds and 2 assists.
Way too early Rookie of The Year Odds
There is an updated odds card already making the rounds for Rookie of the Year candidates, or at least according to who Las Vegas thinks it will be.
Coby White is actually 4th on the list of favorites, with Zion right above him at #3 with Ja Morant the #2 favorite to take rookie of the year. The top pick of the bookies for ROY this year is NY Knick Duke standout RJ Barrett. 
So Right now with White at #4 with +700, I would be able to go to Vegas and lay down $100. If Coby wins it, I win $700. Vegas must have hacked into the Pelican’s front office or at least Zion’s doctor. If we were to lay down $100 on Zion, we would take home $400 if he won it. NO ONE would have guessed this a month ago. We were talking about the next LeBron.

We Have A Problem (Bulls/Cavs Post-Game)

Trying Not To Panic

Cash Considerations is back to talk about the Chicago Bulls’ disappointing 1-3 start. Jason and Ricky are doing their best not to panic after an ugly meltdown against the New York Knicks, but there are some big-picture concerns to address. The Bulls need more consistent production from top guns Zach LaVine and Lauri Markkanen, and any production at all from Otto Porter Jr. and Tomas Satoransky. Jim Boylen also has to figure things out with his defensive scheme and rotations, among other things.


Losing To The Knicks Is A Double Loss

On a new episode of BullsHQ, host Mark Karantzoulis (@mkhoops) shares his thoughts about the Bulls’ most recent stumble, a melt-down loss to the New York Knicks.

Rather than venting on his own, Mark wanted to gauge the pulse of the fan base through a series of listener questions. Many came in, focusing in particular on Jim Boylen and his defensive scheme, Zach LaVine’s continued defensive lapses, what the hell is wrong with Lauri Markkanen, the mystery surrounding Otto Porter’s health, the Kornet-Gafford conundrum, and so much more.
