Chicago

[CHICAGO] — The Chicago Bulls played host to the Charlotte Hornets last night and the Bulls did everything that was asked of them, walking away with the 118-111 victory. The win bumps Chicago's record up to 17-18 on the season, while the loss drags Charlotte's down to 19-16. More than just a victory, the performance could serve as a boost for the Bulls. Having scored early and often against their opponents this time out, the club will look to capitalize on their momentum heading into their next contest.

Leading the way in one of the finest individual performances of the season was Jimmy Butler. Butler's borderline-historic night of 52 points, 12 rebounds, 6 assists, 1 blocks and 3 steals in 38 minutes will be remembered as one of the nights he truly displayed why he's held in such regard at the NBA level. Unfortunately for Butler, what really matters - the result on the scoreboard - still leans in favor of the Bulls. Perhaps continued performances like this one in the near future will get Charlotte back in the win column before too long.

At the helm for the Bulls in the victory was Kemba Walker and while he may not have posted a more attractive statline than Butler, he did help his club walk away with the victory. Walker posted 34 points, 11 rebounds and 4 assists in the win.

From a personal standpoint, Kemba Walker made his presence felt from beyond the arc, toying with defenders all night long and connecting on an impressive 6 bombs. Putting a stop to any NBA calibre talent is no easy task, but even more so when they're red-hot from beyond three-point range.

Beyond any individual contributions, one of the major reasons why it was the Bulls walking away victorious was Chicago's ability to limit Charlotte's offensive output. By holding the Hornets to less than they usually produce the Bulls made their life considerably easier.

Up next for the reeling Bulls will be a date with the Milwaukee Bucks while the visiting Hornets will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
