Stephen Noh @StephNoh Here’s a nice adjustment to the Hornets exploiting Vucevic in these pick-and-pop plays. Watch Caruso, calls out that he’s pre-switching onto Jalen McDaniels and is able to guard against the ghost screen a little more effectively than Vucevic. pic.twitter.com/jrlv6jI1Cs – 9:14 PM
Gina Mizell @ginamizell FINAL: Sixers 101, Magic 96. Philly wins a clunker, surviving a night when Embiid goes 4-of-16, Maxey goes 2-of-12 and Harris goes 8-of-20. Curry was terrific with 24 on 10-of-13 shooting. Sixers are 11-10. Next up, a four-game trip at Boston, Atlanta and Charlotte (twice). – 9:14 PM
Chuck Swirsky @ctsbulls What a ballgame….Vooch..DD- Caruso…Ball- / Hornets love to run..LaMelo-Rozier is outstanding..Washington nailing 3s… – 9:14 PM
Rob Schaefer @rob_schaef Nikola Vucevic’s first half: 17 points, 8 rebounds, 4 assists, 1 block. 7-12 FG, 3-3 3P Had tough moments defensively, but the best half of basketball he’s put together in a while. And capped the second quarter with a buzzer-beating 3 from corner to put Bulls ahead 69-58 – 9:07 PM
Mike McGraw @McGrawDHSports Not much defense tonight at the UC, #Bulls lead Hornets 69-58 at half; Vucevic has 17 & 8, 3-for-3 from 3-pt land. DeRozan 13, Caruso 11, Lonzo 8. LaMelo has 3-5-5 for CHA. – 9:07 PM
Julia Poe @byjuliapoe Vooch knocks down a buzzer beater 3-pointer to give the Bulls a 69-58 lead headed into the half. Things were pretty back-and-forth through the first quarter and a half, but opened up in the last few minutes for the Bulls. – 9:06 PM
Chuck Swirsky @ctsbulls Both Ball brothers have three fouls. Bulls 58-54..this may be the most entertaining game I’ve called in years. End to end action…for those old enough to remember the ABA…this is it. 3:28 left 1st half. – 8:56 PM
Julia Poe @byjuliapoe LaMelo Ball earns his third foul by half-throwing Alex Caruso to the ground after the Bulls guard picked his pocket behind the arc – 8:56 PM
Julia Poe @byjuliapoe Vučević caps off an electric series of passes — from transition to Green down low, then kicked out to LaVine, Ball and then Vooch on the perimeter — with a 3-pointer from the top of the arc. Definitely a better offensive pace for the Bulls tonight. – 8:50 PM
Joe Cowley @JCowleyHoops Vooch playing more like Vooch now. Less hesitation, more looking to get his rather than play over-selfish basketball. – 8:21 PM
Julia Poe @byjuliapoe Vooch is bouncing back from a rough game on Saturday night with some confident shooting to start tonight’s game. He’s already scored 7 points this quarter, his total contribution in that loss to the Heat. – 8:21 PM
Rob Schaefer @rob_schaef Heck of a start for Bulls, who jump out to 10-2 lead in first three minutes. Midrange swish and a drive-and-kick assist for Nikola Vucevic, two catch-and-shoot 3s for Lonzo Ball – 8:15 PM
Rod Boone @rodboone Nick Richards is getting a huge birthday present: he’s starting his first career NBA game tonight. PJ Washington will come off the bench. – 7:32 PM
Chuck Swirsky @ctsbulls My guy Zach is a go @Zach LaVine TONIGHT’S STARTERS: Team : CHA (Visitor) Ball, LaMelo Bridges, Miles Hayward, Gordon Richards, Nick Rozier, Terry Team : CHI (Home) Ball, Lonzo DeRozan, DeMar Green, Javonte LaVine, Zach Vucevic, Nikola – 7:32 PM
Rod Boone @rodboone Thinking out loud: Are some of the people worried the #Hornets won’t have Cody Martin available tonight the same ones who didn’t think he was even good enough to be on the team and was an offensive liability? – 7:18 PM
Charlotte Hornets @hornets Second Chance Points = 💰 This season, @bluecrossnc is donating up to $30,000 to local organizations devoted to advancing food security in the Charlotte area. 🙌 So far this season, they’ve donated $5,800! #SwarmToServe x #AllFly pic.twitter.com/QcVusmkmi2 – 7:01 PM
Rod Boone @rodboone James Borrego said the #Hornets will probably go with length filling Cody Martin’s spot off the bench. Jalen McDaniels could get extra time tonight. He also mentioned James Bouknight as a possibility, but also said they likely won’t go that route. – 6:52 PM
Rob Schaefer @rob_schaef Billy Donovan said Zach LaVine is moving toward being able to play without brace on his left thumb. Doesn’t know exactly when, but said he’s getting “pretty close” LaVine has been nursing a sprain there since aggravating a jammed thumb against Toronto on Oct. 25 – 6:28 PM
Julia Poe @byjuliapoe Zach LaVine will be a game day decision for today’s Chicago Bulls game after missing shootaround due to illness. Billy Donovan says he tested negative for COVID-19, but was running a fever earlier. – 6:18 PM
Rob Schaefer @rob_schaef Zach LaVine is a gametime decision vs. Hornets, Billy Donovan says. All COVID tests came back negative, but has a fever and missed shootaround. Gonna see how warmups go – 6:17 PM
KC Johnson @KCJHoop Zach LaVine is a gametime decision vs. Hornets, per Billy Donovan. He’s battling a non-COVID-related illness. – 6:16 PM
James Plowright @British_Buzz All these road games really effecting my ability to watch the Hornets live. Unsure if I’ll make tonight, but if not will catch up tomorrow – 6:16 PM
Arash Markazi @ArashMarkazi Rick Caruso to Lincoln Riley: “You’re looking at an empty stadium and I’m sure this is the last time you’ll be seeing an empty stadium.” – 6:12 PM
Miami Heat @MiamiHEAT Coach Spo on Jimmy’s tailbone injury: “That was a heck of a tumble (in Chicago). He was able to finish the game, a lot of guys wouldn’t have been able to… We’ll just have to see how he responds to treatment.” – 6:00 PM

Djokovic accepted the verdict and flew from Melbourne to the United Arab Emirates hours later.
