The Bulls crash against an overwhelming Warriors in front of their public

The Golden State Warriors humiliated on Friday night as visitors to the Chicago Bulls (96-138), Eastern Conference leaders and whom they have beaten the last 10 times they have met.

The Bull’s they had just lost Wednesday resoundingly with the Brooklyn Nets (112-138) while the Warriors, in second place in the Western Conference table, faced the game in Chicago after having lost four of their last five games.

The last of those defeats had been a very painful one against the Milwaukee Bucks (118-99), who came to win by 39 points, so the Warriors reacted to that setback today in the best possible way.

Led the Warriors to victory Andrew Wiggins, with 21 points, 4 rebounds and 6 assists; and the congolese rookie Jonathan Kuminga, who came off the bench with 25 points, 3 rebounds, 3 assists, a steal and 3 blocks.

For the Bulls, the center of Montenegro stood out Nikola Vučević, with a double-double of 19 points, 14 rebounds, 5 assists and 3 blocks; and Coby White with 20 points, a rebound, an assist and a steal.

The worst news for those in Chicago was the Zach LaVine injury, one of its main pillars and who went to the locker room with knee pain when 4 minutes had passed in the first quarter.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr gave break klay thompson this Friday. Thompson had played three games after two and a half years away from the courts due to injury and is still in acclimatization process to the competition.

Lonzo Ball, for the Bulls, was especially inspired from the perimeter and hit four 3-pointers in the first quarter. Two minutes into the second half, Steph Currand got his first triple of the game and the maximum lead for his team so far (33-48).

The Warriors, with a field goal percentage of 58% and 41 points in that quarter, continued to increase their dominance over the Bulls, with 45% and 19 points, to conclude the first half of the game with a scandalous difference (47-78).

Two spectacular and consecutive dunks of Kevin Looney they delved into the Bulls wound and one more triple than Curry put the score at 61-97 a few minutes from the end of the third quarter.

With 47 rebounds by the Warriors and 36 for Bull’s, the match ended with an unquestionable victory for the visitors (96-138).
