Coach Billy Donovan praises the Bulls' toughness and defense in a comeback win against the Kings

_______________________

The Chicago Bulls beat the Sacramento Kings 113–109 on Monday night to start their four-game trip to the West Coast on a positive note.   

Before the amazing comeback, the Bulls were down by as many as 22 points in the third frame. But they roared back and ended the game with a 9-1 run.  

It was the third time in four games that the Bulls had come back from being down by 20 points or more to win. In November, they beat the Miami Heat by 21 points in the first quarter, 102–97.   

And last month, they stunned the Minnesota Timberwolves with a 23-point comeback that sent the game into overtime, 129–123. 

Billy Donovan, the head coach of the Chicago Bears, stated that this exemplifies the competitive fire and collective effort that his team possesses.   

When it came down to the fourth quarter, the Bulls relied on DeMar DeRozan, Coby White, and Ayo Dosunmu to carry them through the crucial moments of the game. 

"We did a great job moving the ball and getting a good shot." We have to work hard to get over missing. I'm not saying that our players can't score; it's just that we have bad spells sometimes.   

There are times when it's tough for us to score. While it's not hard for us to make shots, there are times when we don't score enough to keep up with the other team.  

"I think our guys did well. So, like, that does happen sometimes. We talk to these guys all the time about how to live with the result. You move the ball and pass it. We need to be able to answer and move on from that.  

Despite being tested throughout the game, the Bulls rallied with defensive pressure. Chicago forced Sacramento to commit 18 errors, which they converted into 24 points while playing disciplined basketball with 10 turnovers.  

Donovan said, "I thought we were really getting our hands dirty." "The fact that we can force turnovers helps us get out of our offense and gives you easy chances to score."
