Through 3 Quarters
The Charlotte Hornets typically have all the answers at home, but the Chicago Bulls are posing a tough problem. Three quarters in and the Bulls' offense has really been able to impose its will, dominating Charlotte 104-87 three quarters in.
Chicago has enjoyed the tag-team combination of center Nikola Vucevic and small forward DeMar DeRozan. The former has shot 5-for-5 from downtown and has posted a double-double on 25 points and 11 rebounds along with five dimes, while the latter has 22 points and five assists in addition to four boards.
Shooting guard Terry Rozier has led the way so far for Charlotte, as he has shot 6-for-7 from beyond the arc and has recorded 29 points and four assists. Rozier is close to surpassing his season high of 32.
This is the most points Chicago has had yet this season going into the fourth quarter.
