Detroit Pistons Game Score Vs. Chicago Bulls: Live Scoring Updates

The

Ball Brothers went head-to-head for the third time in their

NBA careers, this time as the

Chicago Bulls defended their home floor against the

Charlotte Hornets. Last year,

Lonzo and

LaMelo Ball faced each other on two ocassions, each taking a win on the opposing team's home court.

Zo was playing for the

New Orleans Pelicans during those two meetings, now wearing the Bulls jersey that Hornets owner

Michael Jordan made notorious in the '90s. The

younger Ball brother won the individual matchup, but Charlotte ran out of gas in the 4th quarter as they took their tenth loss of the season.

The game started with

LaMelo driving past his brother and to the hoop, but missing the layup. Melo

failed to score throughout the entire first quarter, contributing with five assists and five rebounds.

P.J. Washington a spark off the bench

After getting

punched in the mouth early on, Hornets managed to take the lead to end the first period of play, willed by

P.J. Washington's hot-shooting from beyond the arc. Washington splashed four consecutive triples in the first after coming in off the bench, but

only scored three more points the rest of the game.

Ball on Ball

Despite his team losing,

Melo Dip beat his older brother on the individual statline, getting

another double-double with 18 points and 13 assists. He also had seven rebounds, one steal, one block, and only three turnovers.

Zo shot a much better percentage but got two less points than his little brother. He had eight assists, but

did little else to help his team, only getting one board, one steal, and one block.

Both brothers got into

early foul trouble, and Melo sat out nearly the entire second stanza. During his short stint on the floor in the second,

Melo got blocked by Zo and scored just 3 points to end the half on 1 of 6 shooting.

Bulls went into the half

up 11 points, with an all-around effort from the entire team. LaMelo scored his first two shots

from downtown over his brother to start the third, right after Zo sank a three of his own.

Defense was the issue for Hornets

The fourth quarter started with the Bulls winning by 19 points, their

biggest lead of the game being 23. A Hornets 24-8 run cut the Bulls lead down to four points, but Mr. 4th Quarter

DeMar DeRozan took over to lead the Bulls to victory.

DeRozan, who

leads the league in two-point attempts, scored 28 on 12 made shots in 20 tries. He's always made a living from 18-feet, but also

added five boards and six dimes to his statline, with one steal.

Gordon Hayward

had a 10-point scoring streak for the Hornets, but an eventual

dagger three by Lonzo Ball would give Chicago the win. Hayward

struggled at first but tended up with 22 points on 8 of 15 shooting from the floor.

Rozier with a game-high 31, Vucevic with 30

Terry Rozier played exceptionally well for Charlotte, scoring 31 points in 37 minutes, going 11 of 17 from the field.

Nikola Vucevic trailed closely with 30 points on 12 of 19 shooting while

sinking all six of his three-point attempts.

Vucevic played 35 minutes and started his night by opening the score with a layup, and

iced the game with a clutch three late in the fourth. He also affected the game by getting 14 boards and five assists.

Now what?

Bulls are now

14-8, third in the East, and will head to

Madison Square Garden on Tuesday to take on

Julius Randle and the

New York Knicks. Hornets have a

13-10 record, sixth in the Eastern Conference, and will get ready to face defending champions

Giannis Antetokounmpo and the

Milwaukee Bucks (active 7-game win streak) at

Fiserv Forum.
