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.

ESPN Stats & Info

Bulls were ice-cold in first quarter

It appeared Chicago was doomed from the start Wednesday night. The Bulls have only won two regular-season games and extended their losing streak to five games after dropping their latest matchup vs. the Thunder.

The Thunder lead at half 58-34 over the Bulls, and to get there, the Bulls had to score 27 points in the second quarter. Westbrook, who didn't score in the first, had 17 in the second, plus 6 assists and 4 steals. Carmelo Anthony with 10 and 6 rebounds, Paul George with 7. Analysis: The Bulls aren't very good.

Royce Young ESPN Staff Writer 

The Bulls have seven points on 2-16 shooting at the end of the first quarter. Seven points, on 2-16 shooting. The Thunder lead 27-7.

Robin Lopez says he has spoken to Niko Mirotic and knows that his teammate wants "to be back with the guys," but Mirotic and Portis have yet to speak. Lopez says he has not been asked to facilitate a conversation between the two of them. "I've talked to Niko a few times," Lopez said before Tuesday's practice. "I went out to dinner with him and Cris [Felicio], but I'm not going to divulge anything about [those conversations]. He told me that stuff in confidence."

Bulls head coach Fred Hoiberg says the team is still 'working' on trying to get Niko Mirotic and Bobby Portis to sit down and speak to one another. He's hopeful that will happen 'soon' -- but for now, the pair still hasn't spoken. "Obviously Niko and Bobby have not talked," Hoiberg said before Tuesday's practice. "Niko has had interaction with the other players. We'll continue to work on it. Niko's going to continue to come in here and get his work in. Continue to ramp up his workload and hopefully be cleared for more on-court activity soon. But to this point no, there has been no communication with Bobby and Niko."
