COBY! COBY! COBY!
What an incredible night we all got to witness on Tuesday 11/12 when Coby White set and NBA Rookie and Chicago Bulls record by hitting 7 3’s in the 4th quarter to seal the win, and seal Coby’s legend in Chicago history. It was one of the most exciting individual performances we’ve seen in the last few years as Bulls fans. Something truly worth getting excited about.
With Coby’s College Coach, Roy Williams in attendance, Coby once again re-ignited his Sub-Zero attitude, shooting a cold-hearted 7 for 11 from three and ending the night with 27 points.
One of the highlights was seeing Ryan Arcidiacono turn around to raise his hands in the air before the ball even made it halfway to the hoop. He knew it was going in the whole time. When asked about it, Arch said, “
Jim Boylen on Coby White’s historic 4th Quarter: “We honored what he was doing – we kept feeding him, we kept getting him, kept finding him. And I thought that group did a hell of a job. Obviously, he was terrific, and we helped him be that way, which is what I think good teams do.”
After the game, Wendell Carter Jr was once again vocal about being a leader within the team. It appears as if WCJ is emerging as the true alpha of this team now..
Wendell Carter Jr. said, “We see exactly what we’re capable of doing. So now, that’s my expectation — nothing lower than that. Whenever that doesn’t happen, I’ve found my voice on this team where I can talk to each individual player in a manner where they will understand.”
WCJ also says he would like to find something to juice the #Bulls up every game if he can. That was part of his motivation in vowing that Bobby Portis wouldn’t go off on the Bulls again.
Injuries are taking their toll early in the season
The injuries seem to be mounting up. Zach turned an ankle and is probable for the Bucks game on Thursday. Otto Porter Jr is still out of action with his foot injury and listed as day-to-day, though is already ruled out of action in the Milwaukee game. Cristiano Felicio is suffering the worst injury of all with a broken right wrist.
