Jabari Lives, Bulls Die in L.A.

Jabari Parker re-entered Jim Boylen’s rotation and showed he’s still got game.  You can’t teach natural talent, and Jabari’s got plenty.  The Chicago product had a mega-dunk off an offensive rebound, slammed another on Josh Hart, and found Wayne Selden on a smooth fast break pass for a reverse layup.  Feels like a rarely see a Bulls fast break that ends with a proper pass and finish, so that was refreshing.  Overall, the game was a dud.  The Bulls and Lakers both struggled mightily in the 1st half.  Wendell Carter had a solid game.  Jr. grabbed a man’s offensive rebound and whipped it back to Chandler Hutchison – who had a decidedly nice game himself.  Hutch hammered it through for the play of the night.  The bench guys, led by hustlin’ Ryan Arcidiacono and Jabari, made a furious run in the final 2 and a half minutes.  But they couldn’t make up enough ground and fell by 6.  They did score 100 points to prevent a free taco giveaway for the fans.  Small victories, I guess.

Scottie Pippen was in the house at Staples Center to cheer on the Bulls.

On to Denver for Thursday’s game against the Nuggets.  Jabari’s back.  Let’s get one.
