The Bulls Sunday with a strong start defeated the Orlando Magic…No, wait! The Bulls Sunday blew a 16-point lead and lost to the Orlando Magic..No, wait! The Bulls Sunday went on a 7-0 run in the last 32.6 seconds to defeat the Orlando Magic…No, wait. Yes, they actually did!

It was a little bit of June Tuesday played out in January, a Golden State Warriors team fast breaking toward greatness and a Bulls team with the resume if not always the resolve.
