Enjoyed fired up Pau Gasol tonight. Danny Green gets better every season. Bertans is jumpy on D, but his shooting changed that game.

Despite 47 points from Kemba Walker, Bulls pull out a 123-120 win over the Charlotte Hornets. Best game of Kris Dunn's brief Bulls career. He finishes with 22 points, seven assists and five rebounds. Bulls pick up their third win of the season.

Kristaps Porzingis struggles with his shot against Toronto and finished with just 13 points in the Knicks' blowout loss.

Kris Dunn having a nice game for the Bulls. Shooting with more confidence — 7/13 from the field — for 16 points. The Bulls' future changes if Dunn can start knocking down a jumper more consistently.

Nick Friedell ESPN Staff Writer 

Kemba Walker is absolutely torching the Bulls. He has 35 points through three quarters — getting pretty much whatever shot he wants. Walker is playing an efficient game: 13-for-20 from the field, five rebounds and four assists.
