Sean Highkin

Wonder if this is enough to get McDermott some minutes. Not holding my breath.

Mike McGraw

#Bulls might be onto something with the multiple-shooter lineup. Dunleavy has hit 3 in a row while Snell or McDermott were also on floor.

Chuck Swirsky

McDermott sees first half action

Sam Smith

Nice applause for Doug McDermott checking in late in 2nd qtr as Thibodeau looks down bench and with some shock realizes he is there

KC Johnson

McDermott becomes 11th player used by Thibodeau tonight.

Nick Friedell

Doug McDermott just checked into the game -- in the second quarter.

KC Johnson

Doug McDermott's meniscus surgery in Dec. lasted roughly 20 minutes and he exited without crutches. Told Rose's could be similarly short.

KC Johnson

No situations exactly alike and Rose's history is his history. But McDermott walked out without crutches from snip procedure in Dec.

Derek Bodner

He's a sure thing. I like certainty. RT @SpikeEskin: only guy I'd trade Embiid for straight up is Doug McDermott.

Nick Friedell

McDermott and Mohammed have entered the game. This one is over. For all the people in attendance tonight -- that's a good thing.

Sean Highkin

Bet we still don't see McDermott until under two minutes left.

Joe Cowley

This game has McDermott written all of it in the second half.

Joe Cowley

Snell coming in. McDermott and Mirotic both on the pine. As soon as they figure out how to use their feet on defense, maybe they can play.

Nick Friedell

Will be interesting to see combos Thibs goes with over the next few days. He's already used 10 players tonight. No McDermott, Moore or Nazr.

Mike McGraw

Last time #Bulls had their entire roster available for a game, including McDermott?

Josh Newman

Billy King trying to trade Brook Lopez, feeling like Teddy KGB when he couldn't close out Mike McDermott

Nazr Mohammed

Nope RT @BullsGetBuckets: @Nazr Mohammed did you have to tie McBuckets's tie for him? Lol #AskNaz

Sean Highkin

Bet McDermott still gets a DNP tonight.

Joe Cowley

Who would have guessed that Snell is turning into what McDermott was supposed to be?

Nick Friedell

McDermott has been noticeably more aggressive in his short doses of play last couple of games. Trying to show that he wants to play.

Nick Friedell

McDermott has appeared for the final 1:06. And he just raced down the floor for an and 1. Crowd loves it.

Sean Highkin

Rose is back in. The Bulls are up 18. McDermott still DNP.

Joe Cowley

Whisper in Thibs' head .... "If they build the lead, McBuckets will come ... '' Thibs yells at voice and tells it "Stop skipping steps!"

Sean Highkin

Butler will not return. Right shoulder strain. Bet Doug McDermott still gets a DNP.

Anthony Slater

If McDermott doesn't find some minutes soon in Chicago, Mitch McBuckets may be coming for that nickname.

Sean Highkin

Nikola Mirotic: 3 minutes. Doug McDermott: DNP This column: still relevant bleacherreport.com/articles/23550…

Sean Highkin

Willing to bet Doug McDermott still gets a DNP or doesn't play until garbage time tonight.

Nikola Mirotic

Tonight was an example of how we want to play. So happy to see my brother @Doug McDermott back on the floor! #GoBulls

Chuck Swirsky

McDermott 3-3 looking terrific Bulls 105-72

Nick Friedell

McDermott nails a 3. Thibs is sitting down. We are in an alternate Bulls universe right now.

Sam Smith

Doug McDermott gets his first basket since Nov. 21

Sean Highkin

Going to keep linking my column about McDermott and Mirotic needing to play more until it stops being true bleacherreport.com/articles/23550…

Nick Friedell

McDermott scores. Dudes in front row high-fiving now. "Find McBuckets!" one guy screams. Bulls just piling it on now.

Joe Cowley

First FG for McDermott since Nov. 2014.

Chuck Swirsky

McDermott scores from Niko!

Sam Smith

Response for Doug McDermott leaving bench to check in; or for Mardi Gras beads being handed out in balcony

Chuck Swirsky

McDermott checks in !

Sean Highkin

NOW McDermott gets ready to check in. Only took a 30-point lead with 4 minutes left.

Nick Friedell

Doug McDermott is coming into game. Crowd behind Bulls bench goes nuts. One guy screams out: "Get Buckets!"

Joe Cowley

McDermott will likely hit him in the leg with an object in the tunnel ... leaving him to scream "Why....Why?'' Playing time, baby!

Joe Cowley

McDermott being treated like a Sox closer.

Joe Cowley

McDermott weeps. It's a small tear, but nonetheless a tear.

Joe Cowley

Thoughts from McDermott - "I mean they're putting Jimmer back in .... C'MON!''

Joe Cowley

Thibs not feeling 30-point lead is McDermott-proof?

Joe Cowley

McDermott blowing into his hands ... I'm guessing so they'll be warmer in the shower in about 12 minutes and 42 seconds.
