Here is Nick Shepkowski’s notebook from Thursday’s Bulls-Thunder game.
Carlos Boozer had 24 points, 12 rebounds and five assists to lead the Chicago Bulls to a 94-89 preseason victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday night.
With Derrick Rose out for the majority of the coming season, it seems fitting the Bulls will kick off the season on Halloween.
The Bulls’ preseason schedule includes only one true road game and two neutral site games on nearby college campuses.
I hope this list helps in you justify your bitterness. Don’t accept the Heat as deserving for a nanosecond. Happy hating.

Kevin Durant scored 17 of his 36 points in the fourth quarter, Russell Westbrook added 27 points and 11 assists, and the Oklahoma City Thunder rallied from a 13-point deficit to beat the Miami Heat 105-94 on Tuesday night in Game 1 of the NBA Finals.

Oklahoma sports fans previously split their loyalties between OU and OSU, but now the state has become united behind OKC, as the Thunder prepare for the Heat in the NBA Finals.
After a labor related splintered season, the NBA Finals is quite the perfect storm. In a battle of epic meteorological proportions, the Thunder takes on the Heat. But more importantly, this is the matchup that seems to be the one most of the basketball universe wants to see.
Kevin Durant had 34 points and 14 rebounds while playing all of regulation for the first time all season, and the Oklahoma City Thunder claimed a spot in the NBA finals by beating the San Antonio Spurs 107-99 on Wednesday night.
