Locked On Bulls is back with a fresh episode, Jordan Maly goes solo to bring you into the weekend. He breaks down the Bulls win over the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday night, their final game before the All-Star break. He also talks about Otto Porter Jr.'s career night, how the team has increasingly improved on the offensive side, one big question in the absence of Kris Dunn, and Bobby Portis sheds some light on what went down last week before he was traded.
Otto Porter Jr. has only played four games for the Chicago Bulls but Wednesday night was the first time in his career he has taken 20 or more field goal attempts. Jordan discusses his confidence level, whether he really was the third wheel to John Wall and Bradley Beal in Washington, and how we should still temper expectations in the remainder of the season. Jordan talks about Zach LaVine's impressive night as a distributor, how he is continuing to improve his vision as a passer and facilitator.
Jordan gets to his one biggest question of the night: what speaks bigger volumes about the Bulls win, Kris Dunn's absence from the lineup or a point guard like Ryan Arcidiacono playing so well with the starting five? He tries to weigh the odds with a small sample size and discusses some of the factors that might play out the rest of the year.
The other main topic on the show today includes Bobby Portis' interview with Alex Kennedy from Hoops Hype on Wednesday afternoon. Portis tells Hoops Hype about how he found out he was getting traded, whether or not he knew that he was being discussed as part of a deal prior to the deadline, and what his feelings were like after it all went down. Jordan gives his take on why he thinks Portis still believes the Bulls and Chicago were a great overall but this latest and last situation was handled poorly. All of this and so much more on Locked On Bulls.
