The Chicago Bulls will welcome the Minnesota Timberwolves to United Center for an NBA game on Thursday. The Chicago Bulls lost 114-117 in their last game over the Kings. The Kings turned the ball over 19 times compared to 14 for Chicago. DeMar DeRozan led Chicago with 33 points and hit a 3-pointer from the top of the arc with 11.6 seconds left to cut the Kings’ lead to 114-113. He was fouled by Harrison Barnes and completed a four-point play to tie it.
De’Aaron Fox hit a 3-pointer with 0.7 seconds left to give the Sacramento Kings a 117-114 victory over the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday night. Fox scored 32 points on 12-for-17 shooting, hitting four 3-pointers. The sixth-year guard is on a roll, scoring 2O or more points in 14 of his last 16 games and averaging over 30 in that span.
The Minnesota Timberwolves on the other hand lost 102-104 against the Celtics in their last game. Anthony Edwards had 28 points and 10 rebounds for Minnesota, which has lost three of four. The Timberwolves started the day seventh in the West, one game ahead of Oklahoma City, Dallas and the Los Angeles Lakers. Kyle Anderson scored 15 for Minnesota and Naz Reid added 15 off the bench.
“I like the way we fought tonight,” Timberwolves center Rudy Gobert said. “The way we stayed locked in on defense, playing defensively. Not having a lot of things going our way. But we, for the most part, kept our composure. Kept our physicality throughout the whole game. I’m really proud of the way we played.” Trailing 101-99, Edwards missed a 3 with 32.2 seconds left that would have given the Timberwolves their first lead since the first quarter. Grant Williams collected an offensive rebound for Boston and won a jump ball after being tied up.
Forte also said that Edwards was ejected for “directly questioning the integrity of the officiating crew” and Anderson “was ejected after being assessed his second technical foul for multiple profanities directed at the officiating crew.” Wolves coach Chris Finch said, “I just thought it was just rough. You know, it was really rough out there. A little unbalanced at times.”
