Chicago Bulls vs Golden State Warriors Team News
Jamal Collier of ESPN writes an article that attempts to describe the Bulls’ resurgence and its entertaining style of basketball. The NBA scribe explains how Chicago’s fun brand of play has taken the NBA world on notice and why the UCLA combo of Zach Lavine and Lonzo Ball has the potential to become more lethal as the season progresses.
“The Ball-to-LaVine combo has become a near nightly connection in Chicago; “Chi Slama Jama” color commentator Stacey King has dubbed this new era of Chicago Bulls’ basketball. Ball has collected 10 assists to LaVine in transition this season, trailing only Devin Booker and Mikal Bridges of the Phoenix Suns (11) for the most frequent passer-to-scorer combination,” Collier notes.
Speaking of fun, Andrew Wiggins appears to have finally found a team where he can finally experience the true bliss of playing basketball. The former No.1 pick, following a rocky start to his career with the Wolves, has grown more comfortable in his role with the Warriors this season. It becam evident on Wednesday when Wiggins threw out a coming-out party against his former team as he exploded for 35 points on a staggering 74.7 percent field goal shooting.

The Warriors, meanwhile, put up another impressive outing against the skidding Timberwolves. As mentioned, Wiggins had a memorable night as he effortlessly destroyed his former team’s defense with thunderous dunks and crafty individual play. Stephen Curry was more than happy to take the backseat in that game, scoring a pedestrian 25 points in under 35 minutes.
