Butler just blew past McDermott for what appears to be game-winning layup. Losers ran ladder.

Mike McGraw

Game is Butler, E'Twaun, Mirotic & Nazr vs. McDermott, Snell, Bairstow & Adrian Griffin.

Scott Gleeson

Doug McDermott knew he'd made it to the NBA when he saw Taylor Swift usat.ly/13kJTDg via @forthewin

Chris Herring

Lol RT @KC Johnson: McDermott said his welcome to the NBA moment came when he saw Ben Stiller and Taylor Swift sitting courtside.

McDermott said his welcome to the NBA moment came when he saw Ben Stiller and Taylor Swift sitting courtside.

Zach Lowe

When Bulls put Mirotic and McDermott on the floor together, you felt the spacing effect. Best shooting of any Rose-era contender.

Josh Newman

Doug McDermott looks like a nice fit for a Bulls team that has a ton of veteran pieces. Twelve points on 5-for-9 FGs and five boards is fine

Magic Johnson

This is the deepest & most talented team the Bulls have had with Rose with the addition of Gasol, Brooks and McDermott.

Earl K. Sneed

Doug McDermott will be in contention for Rookie of the Year. Dude has some serious game.

Carlos Areneta

GIMME DAT PUJIT MCBUCKETS!!!

Brian Mahoney

Doug McDermott now in double figures in his NBA debut, looks like a nice fit. Bulls up 98-65.

Ohm Youngmisuk

Dougie McBuckets is dunking on the Knicks now. Only 81 more games.

Mike McGraw

Could you put money on McDermott dunking in his first NBA game?

Sam Smith

One of key stats for Thibs is plus/minus and Bulls leader at plus 15 thus far is McDermott at 49-39 Bulls

Mike McGraw

#Bulls also happy to see both McDermott and Mirotic knock down 3-ptrs during their first official NBA playing time.

Alan Hahn

Dougie McBuckets is the new WallyBall. RT @Bobo3324: @Alan Hahn looks like @Wally Szcerzbiak found a time machine

Jonah Ballow

Thibs has surrounded Rose with shooters & a rebounder. McDermott, Dunleavy, Mirotic, Gibson.

Adam Zagoria

McBuckets with his first NBA 3-pointer. Now has 5 points. Bulls have 2 potent rookies in Doug & Nikola Mirotic.

Adam Zagoria

Dougie McBuckets just scored his first NBA points on , get this, a layup. Not a jumper.

Joe Cowley

Great fake by McBuckets to set up Brooks 3.

Sam Smith

Welcome to NBA Doug McDermott. Defending J.R. Smith. Smith hits jumper immediately, though seemed McDermott distracted reading JR's tattoos

Joe Cowley

McDermott just taken to J.R.'s school of shooting.

Josh Newman

FUN FACT: The first McDermott triple will more than likely trigger an automatic @Adam Zagoria story, so there's that

Sam Smith

Rotation shaping up with Gibson and Brooks in for Noah and Rose and then McDermott now for Hinrich and probably later for Dunleavy.

Nick Friedell

McDermott enters the game for his first professional appearance in a regular season game. Creighton fans everywhere rejoice.

KC Johnson

Doug McDermott makes his NBA debut at 3:12 of 1st. Was very relaxed and confident at shootaround.

Joe Cowley

McDermott in the game.

Adam Zagoria

Andrea Bargnani & Travis Wear are inactive for #Knicks. It's also the NBA debut for Bulls rookie Dougie McBuckets.

KC Johnson

McDermott said this will be 5th time playing in Madison Square Garden. Said it's his favorite arena to shoot in because of spotlit court.

Tom Haberstroh

A reminder that Anthony Davis is younger than Doug McDermott, Shabazz Napier and Mitch McGary.

KC Johnson

2 Tribune Blogs for price of 1. Butler update: trib.in/1rxOkPq Doug Collins thinks McDermott should start: trib.in/1xAZW8U

Joe Cowley

McBuckets with a Euro-step and then a bad bail-out call.

Sam Smith

Nice play run for McDermott to open 4th quarter with Noah finding him for driving score. McDermott much more than just spotup shooter

Joe Cowley

McDermott keeps playing like that around the rim, the nickname "Billy Ho'' isn't far off.

Joe Cowley

McDermott is allergic to dunking.

Sam Smith

Nice sequence for McDermott: Shot not going down, so drives for a score, chases down miss and finds Rose for baseline floater.

Sam Smith

With Brooks, Mirotic, McDermott, Snell and Gibson in 2nd qtr there may have been some passes, but they're difficult to recall.

Joe Cowley

M&M boys coming in - McDermott and Mirotic.

Sam Smith

I think it should be much better because of McDermott. That's why I'd like to see him in the starting role. @Kele_Sports

KC Johnson

Rotation is askew with Butler out. And I assume Snell in before McDermott an LeBron issue. But something to ask postgame.

Nick Friedell

So Thibs goes with Snell off the bench first instead of McDermott.

Michael Pointer

ICYMI: McDermott and Fowler remain solid on Butler, despite coaching uncertainty.

Michael Pointer

#Butler fans: Nothing major on recruiting front, but commitments Sean McDermott and Nate Fowler make official visits this weekend.

Sam Smith

Thibs had Dunleavy and McDermott at wing as Hornets got back within 9. Not seeing that one again. Snell in; Butler out with thumb sprain

Joe Cowley

Thibs getting his subs in order tonight. First going with Taj and Hinrich for Rose and Noah, then adding in McDermott for Dunleavy.

Rick Bonnell

Hairston-McDermott head-to-head.

Sean Highkin

Shout out to the girl sitting courtside in a McDermott shirsey with a "TEACH ME HOW TO DOUG(ie)" sign.

Joe Cowley

Second unit looking more and more like they may need Dunleavy there to help stabilize it. That means McDermott a starter.

Nick Friedell

Bulls' offense not looking great after 1. Best stat for them is probably the fact that McDermott already has 6 rebounds.
