KC Johnson @KCJHoop
Alex Caruso on his, and the Bulls’, defensive mindset: “Just try to be a pest, blow up plays. Get deflections. Anything to start the break. Because when we’re in transition, you all have seen: We’re really lethal. We got a lot of options.” – 11:51 PM
Trey Kerby @treykerby
Braves in the World Series and the Bulls are the best team in the NBA 👀🔴 #ForTheA pic.twitter.com/6tI2DyTpZw11:49 PM

Joe Cowley @JCowleyHoops
Combined record of the two teams the Bulls have beat this season – 0-5 … I’m usually Mr. Positive, but this had to be sent out to be fair. – 11:12 PM
Joe Cowley @JCowleyHoops

Alex Caruso didn’t know he had five steals tonight until @KC Johnson notified him at postgame presser

Omari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa
Dwane Casey on what sparked the late run: “Making the right play, not turning it over. Trey Lyles was a big part of it, seeing the 3 go in. Saben Lee came in and gave us an energy boost.” – 10:42 PM

The Raptors have played 6 or so quality quarters in 3 games. Good, not great. They probably feel like they could be 2-1, but they’ll have to settle for a 1-2 record going into their reunion with DeMar DeRozan, who’s in town with the new-look Bulls on Monday. – 9:54 PM

Doncic outstanding, game got away from the Raptors in the first six minutes of the fourth quarter

#Bulls fall behind 9-0 at start vs. Pistons. Had a feeling this might happen. After Friday’s game, Bulls were talking about how they just needed another game together to get clicking, no mention of that Detroit defense from Wed. – 8:14 PM
Rob Schaefer @rob_schaef
Pistons out to a 9-0 lead in first 1:55. Isaiah Stewart took Nikola Vucevic in the post for two buckets, then a Frank Jackson 3 and Saddiq Bey floater. Timeout Bulls – 8:13 PM
James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Pistons are up 9-0 early. Isaiah Stewart has four points. Jerami Grant had a big-time block. Good start on both ends for Detroit. – 8:13 PM

#Pistons Isaiah Stewart has some confidence, going right at Nikola Vucevic.
Stewart has the first two baskets of the game, on two strong moves. – 8:12 PM
Omari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa
Pistons open the game with a 7-0 run. Stewart went at Vucevic twice with hook shots, and then a Frank Jackson corner 3 – 8:12 PM
James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Vucevic sees Isaiah Stewart in his nightmares. – 8:11 PM
James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Isaiah Stewart opens with a strong left-handed finish, just like he did in the season opener. – 8:10 PM

I’m just going to say this: I think #Pistons Killian Hayes will have a good game tonight.
I might very well be wrong, but I think he will. – 8:10 PM

Those LaVine starting lineup cheers are getting louder by the game. – 8:08 PM

I think we’ll get a semi-good idea of where the Pistons are at tonight (minus the Cade factor, of course. Chicago played last night, Detroit hasn’t since opener on Wednesday. – 7:16 PM
Joe Cowley @JCowleyHoops
Why Javonte Green might be turning into a fan favorite, but was a favorite of Zach LaVine’s back to last season. Plus, Patrick getting picky and rotation talk.

#Pistons Dwane Casey on DeMar DeRozan’s growth: “The game has slowed down for him and he knows exactly what he wants to do.” – 6:40 PM
Omari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa
Casey said Killian Hayes, Saddiq Bey and Isaiah Stewart have benefitted from having a full offseason and camp. “You can see the difference in their approach, their confidence in what we’re doing, their familiarity with the terminology.” – 6:39 PM

#Pistons Killian Hayes had 21 pts, 7 rebs, 8 assts (and 7 TO) last season against the #Bulls. – 6:39 PM
Rob Schaefer @rob_schaef
Light-hearted moment in Dwane Casey’s pregame presser. Was asked about keys to improvement for Killian Hayes, through lens of Hayes playing well against Bulls last year as a rookie.
Casey, with a laugh: “That was last year’s Bulls team… A lot of those guys aren’t here anymore.” – 6:38 PM
Omari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa
Cade Cunningham is working out with the Cruise this week, Casey said. “That’s what it’s for, for rehab purposes and to grow our young players. It’s serving that purpose right now with our No. 1 pick.” – 6:38 PM
James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Casey said Cade is really eager to play but the medical team is playing it safe. Added that there were some movements that still caused some pain. He’s back in Detroit training and rehabbing with the G League team. – 6:37 PM
Rod Beard @detnewsRodBeard
#Pistons Dwane Casey said Cade Cunningham will work with the G League team this week to help rehab and prepare for his (eventual) debut. – 6:37 PM

#Pistons Dwane Casey on Cade Cunningham: “He wants to play; the medical people are holding him back. You don’t want to rush him back if it’s not 100%. There are certain movements he has where it’s still sore.” – 6:37 PM

#Pistons Dwane Casey on Killian Hayes’ best game vs. #Bulls: “He needs to be aggressive an not be tentative…he’s got to stay confident and keep that pace.” – 6:36 PM

#Pistons Dwane Casey on #Bulls: “They have good defensive hands and their offensive flexibility is good.” – 6:34 PM
Omari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa
Dwane Casey said he’s a fan of playing the same team twice in a row. This will be Detroit’s second-straight game against the Bulls. “It gives you a good feel of what the playoffs are about, preparing for the same team and changing a few things. – 6:33 PM
Rod Beard @detnewsRodBeard
#Pistons Dwane Casey said he’d prefer to have the two games against the same team be home-home or away-away instead of one of each. – 6:33 PM

This possession illustrated extremely well how Alex Caruso’s help defense and DeMar DeRozan’s rim pressure + reading the game have changed the Bulls.
