“Defensively we’ve got to get better. 17 3s again where guys are just looking at us, staring us down and raising for shots. We talked about making the guys put the ball on the floor and we didn’t learn our lesson. Thank God for our bench tonight, which was great.” Lue stated
Meanwhile, Bulls put up a strong effort after Justin Holiday finished with 25 points while Lauri Markkanen chipped in 19 points and eight rebounds in the loss with Cavs.
