NBA scout told me he saw Valpo's Alec Peters practice recently & and he essentially went through a whole practice without missing a shot.
New team, newfound 3-point range
Dwyane Wade made just seven 3-pointers last season, but he had four Thursday night in his Bulls' debut, including a clinching dagger late in the game.

Interesting night for an ex-Knick: Tim Hardaway Jr., who was traded for Jerian Grant, has 21 points in 23 minutes for Atlanta tonight. Grant was subsequently dealt to Chicago in the Derrick Rose trade. They say it's unfair to judge moves in a vacuum but if Hardaway continues to play well, history may not look kindly on that Phil Jackson trade.
Wade gets warm welcome in Bulls debut
Dwyane Wade received a nice ovation from the United Center crowd after being introduced before his first game as a member of the Bulls.

Bulls 105, Celtics 99: Dwyane Wade, who made seven 3-pointers all of last season, was 4-of-6 on triples in his Chicago debut and the Bulls shot much better beyond the arc (44 percent) than they did inside it (25 percent). Isaiah Thomas (25 points) nearly willed Boston back in the fourth quarter but even he missed some free throws down the stretch. Rookie Jaylen Brown a bright spot for Boston and played crunch-time minutes, but had a ill-timed travel in a key moment.
Crowder-Butler collision leads to scuffle
Tempers flared in the Celtics-Bulls game after Jae Crowder and Jimmy Butler collided. After the pushing and shoving ended, Butler, Crowder, Rajon Rondo and Isaiah Thomas all received technical fouls.

Dwyane Wade makes his Chicago homecoming a good one. 22 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists as Bulls win opener 105-99 over Celtics. Wade made biggest 3 of night late in 4th and made defensive play that closed the game down.

Really impressive to see Brad Stevens' early confidence in rookie Jaylen Brown. Less than 2 minutes left of a 2-point game against Bulls.
