The Lakers had their chances but lose to Chicago, 115-110, to finish road trip 1-2. LeBron 31p 14r 6a 2b; Melo 21p 5r; Westbrook 20p 9r 8a- 2b 6tos; I.T. 13p. DeRozan paced the Bulls with 38p. Former Lakers Lonzo (19p 4a) and Caruso (17p 9r) had strong games too. – 10:33 PM

Julia Poe @byjuliapoe
Huge emotional victory — on top of the win itself — for the Bulls tonight as they begin to emerge from the effects of their outbreak.
Vooch (19), Caruso (17) and Ball (19) log double-digit performances behind DeRozan’s 38 points. – 10:32 PM

Vucevic: 19 pts, 13 reb, 3-6 3P
Lonzo: 19 pts, 4 ast, crucial OREB in closing seconds
Caruso: 17 pts, 9 reb
Bulls win first game back from week-long pause, move to 18-10 – 10:31 PM

That Rondo-Caruso tie up is now my favorite play of the season. – 9:47 PM

Kyle Goon @kylegoon
Rondo and Caruso just got tied up with a battle for a loose ball, and that’s the most I’ve ever seen two people battling for a loose ball smile. – 9:45 PM

Julia Poe @byjuliapoe
Caruso’s taking a bit of a clobbering in this game. He’s hit the deck hard a handful of times already, none of them by choice. – 9:27 PM

Kyle Goon @kylegoon
Alex Caruso was trying to get LeBron T’d up after he was arguing for the kick ball. After all they’ve been through, smh – 8:57 PM

Kamenetzky Brothers @KamBrothers
Some serious ball-watching by the Lakers on that Caruso offensive rebound. AK – 8:56 PM

KC Johnson @KCJHoop
Alex Caruso flex alert
(haven’t typed that since the Bobby Portis days) – 8:53 PM

More on this storyline

KC Johnson: Ayo Dosunmu and Stanley Johnson have landed in league’s health protocols. Alex Caruso is available. -via Twitter @KCJHoop / December 11, 2021

Joe Cowley: The good today here from Miami: Alex Caruso went through the first stage of ramped up activity to test the injured hamstring and came out with a thumbs up. If he gets through tomorrow afternoon’s work with the medical team he’s a go vs. Heat. -via Twitter @JCowleyHoops / December 10, 2021

Mike McGraw: Donovan says Caruso (hamstring) is feeling good, will ramp up activity. Possible but still questionable for Miami. #Bulls -via Twitter @McGrawDHSports / December 8, 2021
