Jon Krawczynski @JonKrawczynski
KAT: “We kinda had that Charlotte vibe, energy, loose, too loose. I think the first half stats prove that. We didn’t play to our identity. We came in at halftime we turned up. We played the way we know we’re supposed to.” – 12:32 AM
Chicago Bulls @chicagobulls
This is why Vooch is a 2x All-Star 🔥

Nikola Vucevic is such a team-first guy. You can see it in his unselfish play on the court. And you can hear it in his postgame comments now. Said his offensive struggles most affected him because he felt like he was letting a new and improved team down. – 10:54 PM

Downsizing against the Hornets is a trap. Chicago’s done so to open up this zone, but all that’s done is allow Charlotte unimpeded straight-line drives with their five-out setup. That’s how the Hornets keep clawing back big deficits. – 10:00 PM

Thinking out loud: Are some of the people worried the #Hornets won’t have Cody Martin available tonight the same ones who didn’t think he was even good enough to be on the team and was an offensive liability? – 7:18 PM

James Borrego said the #Hornets will probably go with length filling Cody Martin’s spot off the bench. Jalen McDaniels could get extra time tonight. He also mentioned James Bouknight as a possibility, but also said they likely won’t go that route. – 6:52 PM
