I expect to see a much more focused Bulls team on Friday. They have a day off in Orlando, plenty of tee times set up, and then a team Thanksgiving meal. It will look much different against the Magic. Print it! – 11:51 PM

Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS
The Warriors have had a few ragged moments this season, but this is the worst. It’s as if somebody stole their magic shoes.
Kerr is scrambling. Has tried 11 different players. Trailing 45-30, 7:45 Q2 – 10:55 PM

Final: Rockets 118, Bulls 113
Awful loss by the Bulls, who allow worst offense in NBA to score 118 points, shoot 50 percent and snap a 15-game losing streak
Bulls fall to 12-7. At Orlando on Friday – 10:28 PM
Joe Cowley @JCowleyHoops
Bulls down 10 with 6:21 left … time to unleash hell, boys. Or wear a bad one on that way down to Orlando. – 10:03 PM

Jalen Suggs said the Magic played a good game for 44-45 minutes and believed they showed a lot of great things, despite the loss. – 9:37 PM

Just watched Charlotte-Orlando … Big Rozier game at both ends. Magic’s key young guys were pretty decent but missed having Cole and bench killed them. – 9:34 PM

James Plowright @British_Buzz
Jalen Suggs is playing like a guy who is trying to be a guy even though he really isn’t a guy. It’s early and assuming he develops he’ll be good, but I don’t like the role Orlando are asking him to play or the approach he’s taking – 9:15 PM

How can we stay angry at you LaMelo, two creative finishes at the rim to ice the game pic.twitter.com/zwNLVAqVen9:12 PM

LaMelo Ball just dropped in a layup that will seal the win for the Hornets. They lead 106-97 with 40.6 seconds in the game. He is up to 22 points. – 9:12 PM

The Pelicans’ 72 points in the first half marks a season high for points in any half, and their highest first half point total since scoring 74 at Orlando on 4/22/21. – 9:11 PM

anyone else feel like a lot of Jalen Suggs’ turnovers are, like, weird? Like the ball just squirts away from him? I wonder if some of it is the new basketballs not being broken in yet or if there’s more going on there. (He has 4 TOs in the first half tonight) – 8:06 PM

LaMelo Ball just tried to throw down a highlight-reel dunk on a solo breakaway and missed it. He was subbed out on the following play and a conversation with James Borrego ensued. – 7:57 PM
Chuck Swirsky @ctsbulls
So in abbreviated 2011-12 season, the Charlotte Bobcats finished 7-59.the coach Paul Silas. On that team, DJ Augustin, Tyrus Thomas. The all time record for fewest wins: the 72-73 Sixers (9-73) Kevin Loughery took over 2nd half of season.Later coached the Bulls. I love NBA trivia – 7:55 PM

LaMelo Ball just won Shaqtin a Fool for the season. – 7:55 PM

So…
Do the #Bucks build off that last win v. Orlando and get to the dessert early or are they going to play with the food again? It’s the only real question with the other* worst team in the East on the court tonight. – 7:52 PM
James Plowright @British_Buzz
Nick Richards still has a lot of holes in his game, but he’s a dam good shot blocker when in position. Weakside help or using verticality in drop, he influences everything – 7:45 PM
