PORTLAND, Oregon News Agency — After a two-game losing streak, the Chicago Bulls defeated the Portland Trail Blazer by a score of 104-96 on Sunday night.
DeMar DeRozan finished with 20 points, and the Bulls were able to break the losing streak.
In the final game of a three-game road trip, the Bulls were led by Coby White, who finished with 15 points and 10 assists.
Andre Drummond, who came off the bench, also finished with 15 points. The victory was virtually assured when Ayo Dosunmu made a three-point shot with twenty-one seconds remaining.
The victory was achieved by the Bulls through their defense, despite the fact that they were never able to expand their lead by more than 11 points and made only eight of their thirty-two attempts at three-point shots.
Billy Donovan, the coach of the Bulls, recently stated, "I really thought we tried to share the ball." "I believe that we just didn't shoot the ball very well,
as evidenced by the fact that we created 27 assists on the number of threes that we made. But I have to give credit to the players because we managed to hold on defensively.
Portland was led by Jerami Grant, who scored 24 points, and Deandre Ayton, who scored 22 points and grabbed 12 rebounds. Four of the last five games that the Blazers have played have been losses.
