Jimmy Butler on the new-look Bulls: “They’re a really good team. It’s always great to see Chicago winning, and they’re having fun out there in the stands. The organization, the city deserves that. I think they’re gonna do extremely well this year.” – 12:07 AM

Five Degrees of Heat from Saturday night’s 107-104 victory in Chicago: sun-sentinel.com/sports/miami-h…
1. Closing time on the road delivers a W.
2. With no cushion, as Dedmon is ejected.
3. Robinson keeps it afloat.
4. Herro out, but rotation works.
5. Including a Strus comeback game. – 12:02 AM

Fun game, and atmosphere, at the United Center Saturday, but Bulls fall to Heat in what Miami guard Gabe Vincent thinks could be a matchup “down the road”

Asked DeMar DeRozan if he can put into words his bond with Kyle Lowry. He said he couldn’t. Then he did, eloquently:”If my mom had another son, it’d be Kyle.If his mom had another son, it’d be me. That’s as simple as I can put it. That’s how close we are. That’s what it is to me” – 11:20 PM

Bulls showed they are a playoff-caliber team with their fight tonight … just not Miami-caliber yet. Measuring stick came up short.

Alex Caruso is doing it all. Shooting, guarding his tail off (as usual), crashing offensive glass and his facilitating is really popping. Bulls have used him a bunch as a screener/decision-maker in pocket of Miami defense tonight – 10:00 PM

Bulls plus-5 and win 3rd quarter for second straight game.
DeRozan and Caruso main reasons why tonight. – 9:47 PM

No Tyler Herro, you expected this to be a game you’d have to grind out offensively
