Cody Taylor @CodyTaylorNBA
On a night when DeMar DeRozan scored 41 points, the Bulls vet recognized Jalen Suggs:
“He is a hell of a talent. I’m a fan of his. … (I just told him) to keep going: ‘You’re a hell of a talent. You can be very successful.’ I’m rooting for him.”

10 observations: Bulls’ slide continues with 19-point loss to Magic
trib.al/iuiovGx11:01 PM
KC Johnson @KCJHoop
Nikola Vucevic is a career 49% shooter.
But he has failed to crack 40% in half his 38 games this season, including 10 under 35%.
More on another frustrating night for Vucevic @NBCSChicago: nbcsports.com/chicago/bulls/…10:32 PM
Joe Cowley @JCowleyHoops
Bulls look lethargic in loss to Orlando, but never fear … the “cavalry” is on the way!

Nikola Vucevic: “Shooting is part of the game. I was more disappointed in my focus defensively, some of the things I’ve been pretty good at so far this year – getting back-cut, going for pump fakes, not being in the right positions in pick-and-roll, things like that.” – 9:03 PM
