Fresh legs Trae Young is going to be a problem tonight for #Bulls7:53 PM
Julia Poe @byjuliapoe
The absences of Lonzo Ball and Alex Caruso are really standing out along the defensive perimeter early tonight. Trae Young looks lively fresh out of COVID-19 protocol and he’s picking apart this Bulls defense. – 7:52 PM
Chris Kirschner @ChrisKirschner
I think Trae Young is OK. – 7:52 PM
Jason Walker @JasonWalkerNBA
From the Office of Official Hawks Haters: Reminder that DeMar DeRozan is a Certified Hawks Hater. – 7:51 PM
Darnell Mayberry @DarnellMayberry
Trae Young steps back in and immediately shows his worth. He’s scored or assisted on 12 of the Hawks’ first 14 points in the first 4 1/2 minutes. Tough! – 7:50 PM
Chris Vivlamore @CVivlamoreAJC
Chaundee Brown, signing to a 10-day contract Monday, started for Hawks. Nate McMillan said this before the game: “A couple of our guys we had to show them to the locker room tonight. First time in the building. It’s real. It’s that real.” – 7:49 PM
KC Johnson @KCJHoop
Wonder if someone else will be guarding Trae Young after this timeout. – 7:49 PM
Joe Cowley @JCowleyHoops
Fleming praised Coby’s defense in the pregame presser, but it must have stayed back in Chicago so far. – 7:49 PM

Alfonzo McKinnie’s deal with the Chicago Bulls is for two seasons at the minimum:
21-22: $1,090,007 (rest of season)

Both seasons are non-guaranteed. 22-23 has an early-July fully guaranteed date.

Kevin Chouinard @KLChouinard
Trae gets handchecked without a whistle too much this season, but it’s good to see him taking advantage and doing the same to stay in front of his man on the other end. – 7:46 PM
Joe Cowley @JCowleyHoops
Another Vooch first quarter? Let’s sit back and see. – 7:42 PM

Apologies for being a bit late with this but I want to extend my deepest condolences to the family and friends on the passing of Rudy Malnati Jr. who owned Pizano’s Pizza. Rudy loved Chicago so much, its teams and the Air and Water Show. He was so gracious to me and my family. – 3:18 PM

It feels like there’s a scale factor missing in these ratings but … the 538 model sure loves Alex Caruso: projects.fivethirtyeight.com/nba-player-rat…2:58 PM
