Victor Oladipo made a great debut for the Houston Rockets on Monday. The only problem was that the Chicago Bulls- and more specifically Zach LaVine- were none too interested in rolling out the red carpet for him. In a close one, LaVine’s 33 points proved to be just enough to help Chicago squeeze past the Rockets to win 125-120.
Despite that, Oladipo, who had 32 (only two of which came from the free throw line), was encouraged by the way that team played and the ‘potential’ that they have. Even still, they do need to get a move on as their current record sits at 4-8. Meanwhile, the Bulls are much improved from where they were a year ago, sitting at 6-8 after the win.
