The Chicago Bulls brought in another exciting win on November 10 – a comfortable 117-107 victory over the Dallas Mavericks. With the league taking notice of the team’s success early in the season, the Bulls now possess an impressive 8-3 record.

“The Bulls are back, man,” Maverick’s guard Tim Hardaway Jr. said.

After steamrolling through the preseason with an undefeated 4-0 record, the franchise has seen one of its most successful starts this season since the 1990’s. Currently, the Chicago Bulls are the #2 seed in the Eastern Conference.

Throughout the night, the new additions of Alex Caruso, DeMar DeRozan, Lonzo Ball, and Nikola Vucevic ultimately proved to be the new special formula for the Bulls. This was evident in the exhilarating 360-degree fastbreak dunk by LaVine, who was assisted by a full-court one-arm pass by Ball after Caruso’s defensive steal.

These favorite fan additions scored 95 out of the 117 Bull’s points on 50% from the field. The suffocating Chicago defense held Maverick’s star Luka Doncic to 6-of-18 from the field on the other end of the court.

While the team has only played 11 of their 82 regular-season games, players and fans alike are eager to celebrate the uncommon success among the franchise.

“We have games here and there where we’re just kind of finding ways to win, and I think that is a sign of a good team,” said guard Alex Caruso. “I think we have a lot of ways to get better. That is the most encouraging thing to me,” the former champion continued.

One of the most favorable aspects of the Chicago Bulls is their humility amidst such tremendous success. The players are seriously focused on winning and improving their game.

Recently, the Bulls have faced some of the more challenging teams of the league, such as the Brooklyn Nets. The team will be headed towards the West Coast on November 12 to play the 10-1 Golden State Warriors. 

Lonzo Ball, however, continues to believe in the success and teamwork of the new lineup. 

“We’re moving in the right direction,” said Ball. “It’s a brand-new team. Trying to build a new culture here; 8-3 is not too bad.”
