It’s taken almost two years, but the nickname finally is starting to fit. Doug McDermott is proudly, efficiently and vitally getting McBuckets for the Bulls in his best stretch as a pro.

The Bulls Thursday visit the “rest” home of the NBA, sleepy San Antonio, for the national TNT game with the San Antonio Spurs.

It was just one play among a few hundred in Monday’s Bulls’ resolute 100-90 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks. But as much as any lately, it may have symbolized who the Bulls are and have to be in this extended playoff race against heightening odds.

Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg after Saturday’s 108-100 victory over the Houston Rockets was considering the team’s effective play in a near end to end victory.
