It seems like this year’s off-season changes may have been beneficial for the Chicago Bulls.
According to reports, with the Bulls’ victory over the Brooklyn Nets on Monday, the Midwestern team locked in their first 3-0 start, since the 1996-97 season.
This off-season left Miami Heat fans fuming mad, with the organizations lack of respect for their star player. As a result, Dwyane Wade left South Beach to return to his hometown, Chicago. There, the all-star athlete became the highest-paid player on the team, and shocked Bulls’ fans with his explosive home opener. Wade’s arrival, in addition to the departure of Derrick Rose, left Bulls fans on edge. However, they are off to a great start.
According to reports, the team drained 50.6 percent of their shots from the field, including 40.7 percent from behind the arc, in their 118-88 win against Brooklyn. If that wasn’t enough, seven players hit double digit points which helped the team lead by double digits for most of the night.
Jimmy Butler led the team to a double digit win with 22 points. Wade and Doug McDermott pulled in 12 points. Nikola Mirotic came off the bench to collect 16 points and 10 rebounds. Isaiah Cannan had 15 points. Taj Gibson scored 14 points with 11 rebounds and Rajon Rondo collected 10.
The Bulls head to Boston on Wednesday, November 2nd to face off against the Celtics.
