Bulls star DeMar DeRozan reacts to Lonzo Ball dagger over Kevin Durant, Nets
The Chicago Bulls pulled off the biggest upset of the evening on Saturday as they took down the mighty Brooklyn Nets, 111-107. Lonzo Ball hit a big dagger triple late in the contest that guaranteed a win for the Bulls at Barclays Center.
After the game, DeMar DeRozan had nothing but praise for his Bulls teammate. According to DeRozan, he had all the trust in the world in Lonzo despite the latter’s poor shooting night:
“It’s big,” DeRozan said, via KC Johnson of NBCS Chicago. “We trust him. I tell every single guy, ‘I don’t care if they miss 10 in a row. Shoot the next one.’ It shows a lot about who ‘Zo is. I had the utmost confidence when I seen him space up for that 3 that he was going to knock it down.”
Lonzo isn’t exactly the best three-point shooter out there and he went just 3-of-10 from the field against the Nets. Nevertheless, the Bulls guard made the biggest shot of the game when it mattered most.

Lonzo had all day to shoot and he made sure to drain the big triple. This was definitely a huge win for the Bulls, who are trying to establish themselves as a legitimate threat in the East. There’s no better way to do that than by taking down arguably the best team in the conference.
