Bulls crush Lakers 121 – 103 on the road in LA

Coach Donovan deserves to be ecstatic with his team, after the Bulls utterly destroyed the Lakers at Staples Center on Monday, the game ending with a 121-103 final score.

It was truly a team performance by Chicago, something coach Donovan should be proud of, considering the though stretch of road games, both behind and ahead of the Bulls. DeMar DeRozan was the shining star of the game, scoring a season-high 38 points in L.A. on Monday, but we certainly can’t take anything away from the rest of the team. Lonzo Ball also scored a season-high of 27 points and LaVine was great with 26 points in the Lakers’ basket that night. Zach Lavine and DeRoazn were on fire from the very start of the game, combining for 39 points in the first half, a premonition of what was to come.

The Lakers were once again without LeBron James, who remains indefinitely out with abdominal strain, and this certainly factored into the team’s fourth loss in the last seven. Horton-Tucker had a good game with 28 points, 6 rebounds and 2 assists, while Westbrook netted 25 for the night with 8 assists. AD tried to help pick up the slack and scored 20 points, but was ejected in the third.

With the beating over the Lakers on Monday, the Bulls swept the Staples Center, having won the previous night against the Clippers by 10 points. Not accounting for the loss against the Warriors, the Bulls road trip has been a success so far. Donovan’s team is facing the Trail Blazers on Wednesday to close their Pacific tour and the Nuggets on Friday for their final game on the road, before welcoming the Knicks on Sunday.
