Bulls first summer league game ends with a win....

Chicago Bulls 93, Indiana Pacers 88
First-round picks Tyrus Thomas and Thabo Sefolosha combined to score 26 points, grab eight rebounds and dish out five assists as the Chicago Bulls downed the Indiana Pacers, 93-88, in the first game of the 2006 Pepsi Pro Summer League. Aaron Miles and Cedric Banks led the Bulls with 19 and 17 points, respectively, while Sefolosha chipped in 16 and Thomas finished with 10.

The Pacers’ James White scored 10 of his 13 first-half points to lead Indiana back from a 10-point first quarter deficit to a 47-46 advantage at the break. The Pacers were down 10, 28-18, when they went on a 13-4 run to start the second period. David Harrison fueled the spree, scoring seven of the team’s first 10 points in the quarter to bring Indiana within one, 32-31, with 7:12 remaining in the half. The Pacers, who shot 51.9 percent in the half, were led by White’s 13, along with 2005 first-round pick Danny Granger’s 10, while Chicago was paced by Thomas’ 10.

The second half was full of runs, as the Bulls came roaring back after halftime, outscoring the Pacers 25-14 in the third quarter to re-capture their lead heading into the fourth, 71-61. But the Pacers answered again, tying the game with 5:29 left on a three-point play from Corey Williams. The last five minutes of action saw seven lead changes, but Chicago retook the lead for good, 90-88, on an Eddie Basden three-pointer with 20.2 on the clock. Indiana, who was held scoreless for the game’s final minute, was then hit with a technical after immediately calling a timeout that they did not have, and after the charity shot, Aaron Miles hit two free throws to seal the victory.

Indiana had five players in double figures, led by David Harrison and James White’s 17 points. Both teams were pretty even in most statistical categories, as Chicago shot 48.3 percent to Indiana’s 47.3, and both teams finished the contest with 30 rebounds a piece.

Thanks for the recap.  That site sure takes its sweet time posting box scores - it's still not posted there at 7:15pm CST.  Oh well - summer league stats are always deceptive given the garbage rosters on most teams.  I'll take the stats with a grain of salt as always and just hope our key guys stay healthy.

If you're going to lay an egg -- and Adam Morrison and Tyrus Thomas could have made omelets Monday -- this is the place.

Welcome to the NBA, summer-league version.

 "Obviously, that's why they have these leagues," Morrison said.

". . . This is where you make mistakes. Get them all out of the bag."

Morrison and Thomas -- the third and fourth picks in the June 28 draft, respectively -- will not remember fondly their first taste of the NBA.

Thomas, a 6-foot-9 forward for the Chicago Bulls, missed 6 of 9 shots and had six turnovers. He finished with 10 points and four rebounds.

Morrison, a 6-8 forward for the Charlotte Bobcats, was 3 of 14 and finished with 12 points. He had two turnovers, four rebounds and five assists.

Their teams did win, however.

Orlando's six-team summer league, featuring rookies and free agents, tipped off with the Bobcats beating the Miami Heat 83-65; the Bulls defeating the Indiana Pacers 93-88; and the New Jersey Nets edging the Magic 86-82 at RDV Sportsplex in Maitland.

Thomas, 19, left Louisiana State a year early. He had a shot blocked -- something he rarely experienced in the Southeastern Conference -- but showed the athleticism that had pro teams drooling.

"The guys out there are just as athletic and skilled as I am, so I just have to be patient and take my time," Thomas said.

Bulls Coach Scott Skiles watched Thomas and guard Thabo Sefolosha -- Chicago's other first-round pick -- from the sideline. Sefolosha, a 6-7 shooting guard from Switzerland, had 16 points on 6 of 8 shooting and had four steals.

"I thought Tyrus was OK for his first game," Skiles said.

Charlotte Bobcats 88, Chicago Bulls 87
The Charlotte Bobcats pounced on the Chicago Bulls early in the nightcap of Day No. 2 en route to an 88-87 victory to raise their record to 2-0 this summer. This victory wasn’t as easy as last night’s 18-point victory over the Heat, as the Bobcats had to hold-off a valiant effort by Chicago.

Adam Morrison led all scorers with 29, shooting 8-17 (47.1%) from the field and 2-3 from behind the arc. Sean May and Alan Anderson both chipped in 15.

Heading into the second quarter, the Bobcats held a 25-14 lead, led by Morrison’s 15 points. Morrison seemed to find his touch following a shaky debut in last night’s game, hitting on five of seven shots in the period. Starting the second period the Bobcats continued to surge ahead, ending the half with Morrison draining a three and pushing the Bobcats lead to 13, 49-36.

Thabo Sefolosha, Tyrus Thomas and the Bulls came out ready to play in the second half, going on an 8–0 run and cutting the lead to five. And it didn’t stop there. Led by Eddie Basden’s 10 third-quarter points, the Bulls surged ahead, 56-55 with 3:27 left in the third. But it didn’t stay that way for long, as Brett Blizzard hit a three with 1:45 left to put the Bobcats back on top, finishing the third on a 7-2 run to put them up 67-62.

The Bobcats maintained a lead for most of the fourth, but a focused Bulls team was quietly chipping away. Aaron Miles cut the Bobcats lead to one, 85-86 on a layup with 28.8 left.. On the ensuing possession, the Bobcats inbounded to Morrison who threw out of a double team, but they were unable to convert resulting in a Chicago timeout with 8.0 remaining. Sefolosha then hit a 15-footer from the baseline to put Chicago back on top, 87-86, with 3.1 on the clock.

Charlotte got the shot they wanted as Morrison got free for a floater in the lane. But, it was off the mark and D’or Fischer tipped it in with 0.1 left for the victory to remain the only unbeaten team in this summer league.


Ty's Line
17 points 11 rebs 2 assts 2 blocks and 1 steal

Safo Line
16 points 3 rebs 1 assist 3 steals and 1 block
