On Tuesday, the Chicago Bulls rallied at the United Center with an uplifting 118-113 victory against the Atlanta Hawks. The Bulls were determined to bounce back after a tough 109-95 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers in their last match.

They relied on key plays from DeMar DeRozan and Alex Caruso, who delivered crucial moments, securing their third win during the six-game home stand. This win brought their season record to 14-18.

Andre Drummond entered the spotlight, filling a starting position due to Nikola Vucevic’s injury. Despite the unexpected role, the 6-foot-10 center showcased his prowess, delivering a remarkable performance with 24 points and an impressive 25 rebounds, reminiscent of his All-Star days in Detroit.

Drummond laid the groundwork, but DeRozan and Caruso sealed the deal. Caruso’s clutch three-pointer nudged the Bulls ahead, 109-106, with 3:57 remaining. DeRozan, in turn, capitalized with back-to-back jumpers, securing a 113-110 lead for the Bulls with less than two minutes on the clock.

Trae Young of the Hawks sank two free throws, narrowing the gap to 113-111. However, DeRozan swiftly retaliated with a skillful finger roll, expertly evading Jalen Johnson’s defense with a shimmy and an impressive up-and-under move, extending Chicago’s lead to 115-111.

The Bulls are on a roll, securing victory in nine of their last 13 games. DeRozan led the charge with 25 points, showcasing his dominance with 11 crucial points in the fourth quarter.

On the flip side, Coby White struggled, missing all seven of his attempted three-pointers, ending the game with 19 points, five rebounds, and five assists.

Ayo Dosunmu, the backup guard, made an impact with 19 points, seven rebounds, four assists, and three steals. Alex Caruso contributed 11 points, while Jevon Carter added 10, bolstering the team’s performance.
