Bulls Over Magic 105-101

Lauri Markkanen scored 21 points for Chicago when  the Bulls beat the magic 105-101 last night. Chicago blew an 18 point lead in the fourth yet still came away with a win after losing seven games straight. Zach LaVine had 18 points and 7 rebounds. Guard Kris Dunn missed his eleventh game and coach Hoiberg doesn’t know if he’ll be ready to play Toronto this Wednesday.

 

Max Domi, Clayton Keller, Alex Goligoski, and Tobias Rieder each had a goal and an assist when the Coyotes pounded the Blackhawks 6-1 Monday night. Arizona end their nine game losing streak while Chicago now has a season high of six consecutive losses. Alex DeBrincat scored his twentieth goal of his rookie season.

 

Spring training getting underway this week. Most pitchers and catchers getting a work out on Valentines Day, the full squad will be on the field on the 19th.  

Bulls 19-36 Overall Hosting Orlando Tonight

The Bulls are home tonight hosting the Orlando Magic. Chicago is 19-36 overall, they have dropped eight of their last ten games. The Bulls are not bad at home though, they are 12-15 this season.

 

Brandon Saad is in the longest single season goal drought of his career. Saad has gone fourteen games without a goal for the Blackhawks. He got off to a great start this season, but at this point his thirteen goals, twenty four points in fifty four games pales in comparison to Artemi Panarin, the player that Chicago traded to Columbus for Saad. Tonight the Blackhawks visit Phoenix to take on the Coyotes trying to snap a five game skid. Corey Crawford is traveling to Arizona with the team but will not be on the ice.
