Bulls defense was porous throughout the night and it cost them in the end. Dwyane Wade finishes the game with 34 points but he played 36 minutes. It will be interesting to see if Wade plays in Detroit on Tuesday on second night of back to back.

Poor defensive effort from Bulls in 1st half. Blazers gliding up and down the floor with ease. Wade and Butler have combined for 36 points. As usual, somebody besides Wade or Butler is going to have to step up if Bulls want to come back and win this game.

Dwyane Wade and Jimmy Butler combined for 20 of the Bulls' 32 points in 1st quarter. Those two are always aggressive offensively but it's clear that they are trying to take even more shots with reserves tonight.

Cubs GM Jed Hoyer hopes one conversation between Miguel Montero and Joe Maddon is all it takes to smooth things over after the catcher complained about a lack of communication between the two. Hoyer likes the combo of Montero and Willson Contreras. The Cubs will look for a veteran catcher to stash in the minors in case he's needed.
