Bulls hold off Kings for 113-106 win
(SACRAMENTO) – Zach LaVine kept getting to the free throw line down the stretch, Lauri Markkanen rediscovered his shooting stroke and the Chicago Bulls finally figured out a way to close one out. LaVine scored 28 points and made four free throws in the final 11 seconds, and the Bulls overcame a sloppy fourth quarter to hold off Sacramento Kings 113-106 on Monday night. Markkanen had 20 points and seven rebounds, Wendall Carter Jr. added 10 points and 10 rebounds, and Tomas Satoransky scored 14 points as Chicago snapped a three game losing streak. The Bulls (7-14) led by 19 early in the second half but had trouble hanging on. Chicago committed eight of its 18 turnovers in the fourth quarter and made only one basket over the final 4 1/2 minutes. Buddy Hield hit a step-back jumper that pulled the Kings to 102-100 with 2:18 remaining. Hield missed three shots from beyond the arc in the last 36 seconds, and LaVine sealed the game at the free throw line. Hield finished with 26 points for Sacramento. Richaun Holmes added 20 points and nine rebounds.
