CHICAGO -- The Chicago Bulls surrendered an early 14-point lead and dropped a 108-89 decision against the Sacramento Kings on Monday night at the United Center.
The loss, the Bulls' 22nd in 28 starts, came after the team's historic 56-point loss to the Boston Celtics last Saturday also at the United Center. The Kings' come-from-behind ruined the return of Kris Dunn and Bobby Portis who were recovering from knee injuries that sidelined both for extended periods of time.
After seizing the opening quarter, 33-26, the Bulls roared to a 56-42 advantage at the 11-minute mark of the second quarter. But the Kings rallied in the second half and outscored the Bulls 63-33.
De'Aaron Fox sped his way to 25 points and six assists to orchestrate the Sacramento's fast-paced attack. Five other Kings scored in double figures with Bogdan Bogdanovic and Marvin Bagley Jr finishing with 16 apiece while Iman Shumpert had 14. Willie Cauley-Stein added 11 points and 16 rebounds.
Zach LaVine led the Bulls with 19 points while Lauri Markannen had 13 and six boards, but no other Bull notched double figures in points as Chicago made only 34 of 76 field goals, including a low eight of 28 from long distance.
With their sixth win in ten games, the Kings improved to 14-12 for ninth place in the Western Conference. The Bulls, meanwhile, fell to 15th place in the Eastern Conference and 29th of 30 overall in the entire NBA.
