Robin Lopez ejected in Sacramento after back-to-back T's, throws chair
Feb 07 2018
But at least he shot it better tonight after hitting just 8-of-37 shots over his previous three games. The Kings, who are in their own rebuild and, in some ways, race for the No. 1 overall pick in the NBA Draft, finished strong in a 104-98 victory on Monday night. The Bulls, who lost center Robin Lopez to an ejection in the first half, have dropped seven straight.
Chicago started off this game well, leading 28-9 after the first quarter while limiting Sacramento to a season-low for scoring in any period this season. "I told him, that's bad", Lopez told reporters after the game.
"I was a little bit surprised, in my mind, such a subdued response".
As the final game before the trade deadline, there is a chance that the Bulls team on the floor Monday night at the Golden 1 Center won't look the same as the one that takes the floor Friday against the Timberwolves at the United Center.
On his way to the Bulls locker room, Lopez grabbed a chair and angrily tossed it.
