Bull Debut

Two games into my Chicago career, and I’m playing hot-and-cold. First, the hot, against the Mavs in Dallas.

I shot pretty good but I didn’t shoot much (5-7). This is obviously not my team, but I knew that when  I signed here – hell, that’s half of why I signed here.

My defense was pretty solid, as I had two steals and three blocked shots, including one on this Dirk fade away.

I even got a breakaway dunk. I scored 12 points with 3 rebounds, 1 assist, 2 steals and 3 blocks. Not a bad debut.

Next up were the Clippers and this was a personal disaster. Here I hit an up-and-under layup against Blake Griffin, but in the end he had my number all game.

Not only could I not stop him on defense, he grabbed 7 rebounds, five of them offensive. I had a meager three, none offensive. He ran amuck the entire game.

We were up three with under 10 seconds to go when Eric Gordon tied it up. Dammit.

I tried a three to win it (I’m working on my three-point shot; it’s up to 49 now) but bricked it – barely. Overtime!

Here’s the eventual game-winner by Rose. I was a non-factor in overtime.

We won and I finished with 14 points (two more then Blake, actually), 3 rebounds and 1 block. It wasn’t my best game as I shot 47% from the field after coming into the game leading the league at 70%. Oh well. Next game!
