Bembry totaled 12 points (6-11 FG, 0-2 3Pt), six assists, four steals, two rebounds and one block in 39 minutes during Thursday's 114-102 loss to the Bulls.

Bembry made the most of his playing time by shooting efficiently from the field (54.5 percent), displaying playmaking ability (six assists) and providing a defensive presence (four steals and one block).
