ESPN Stats & Information

Bulls have champs' number

Chicago bested the Cavaliers for a third time this season on Saturday night despite a BPI projection that gave Cleveland an 80 percent chance to win the game.

Nick Friedell ESPN Staff Writer 

This stat comes from Jacob Nitzberg of ESPN Stats and Information: "Since Michael Jordan joined the Bulls, there has only been 1 instance with 2 Bulls having a triple-double in the same game. Michael and Scottie Pippen each had a triple-double in an OT win over the Clippers on Jan. 3, 1989."

Nick Friedell ESPN Staff Writer 

Dwyane Wade, when asked what he said to Cris Felicio, after Felicio grabbed the rebound that would have given Wade a triple double at the end of the game: "I told him I'm not going to even act like I ain't mad at him," Wade said. "I'm very mad at him. It's all good. He said he didn't see me down there, took a shot at my height. But it's cool. Jimmy got one. It would have been to have two guys get a triple double. I'm sure a stat would have came out that would have said Dwyane Wade and Jimmy Butler are the first duo to get a triple double on a back-to-back since Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen, since they got every record around here. It would have definitely been out there, we laugh about that often but it's all good. I just got to work harder to get another one."
