New Orleans
Chicago

[CHICAGO] — The Chicago Bulls played host to the New Orleans Pelicans last night and the Bulls did everything that was asked of them, walking away with the 107-99 victory. The win bumps Chicago's record up to 20-21 on the season, while the loss drags New Orleans's down to 16-25. Though a win's a win and Bulls fans will settle for whatever they can get their hands on, there's plenty of room for improvement in the future. Games likes these are essential for any team with bigger aspirations.

An impressive performance from Anthony Davis led all players in the contest and his 36 points, 14 rebounds, 2 assists, 3 blocks and 1 steals in 39 minutes will make many-a-fantasy owner proud. Unfortunately for Davis, 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 New Orleans back in the win column before too long.

At the helm for the Bulls in the victory was Jimmy Butler and while he may not have posted a more attractive statline than Davis, he did help his club walk away with the victory. Butler posted 28 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists in the win.

Chicago's offensive contributions were complemented from a decent showing on the defensive end of the ball. While they didn't exactly shut down the visiting Pelicans, they did limit them to a point total in line with their season average. Not every performance can be a home run, so the Bulls will settle for the upper hand in this one.

Up next for the reeling Bulls will be a date with the Memphis Grizzlies while the visiting Pelicans will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Indiana Pacers.
