How to watch the Lakers vs. the Bulls: TV channel, NBA live stream info, start time
through 3 quarters
The Chicago Bulls are on the road but don’t look worse for wear and tear. Three quarters and their attack really knew how to impose its will, dominating the Los Angeles Lakers 96-73 in three quarters.
Chicago is led by small forward DeMar DeRozan, who so far has 38 points and four assists. One thing to watch out for is the dire plight of Derrick Jones Jr., who is currently five years old.
Los Angeles leaned on forward Anthony Davis, who has 20 points with six boards, and point guard Russell Westbrook, who has 21 points and seven assists in addition to six rebounds.
If the contest was over now, that would be the Bulls’ biggest margin of victory to date this season.
