Bulls Game Notes For Friday @ Golden State
* The Bulls and Warriors have split their last 10 meetings, with Chicago picking up a 113-111 overtime victory the last time the teams met in Golden State (January 27, 2015).
* Chicago has held each of its last four opponents below 100 points, which is tied with the Knicks for the longest active streak in the NBA. Golden State, however, has scored 100 or more points in 42 straight home games; the last time the Warriors were held below 100 points on their home court was in a 98-97 win over Orlando, December 2, 2014.
* The Warriors improved to 13-0 on the season after overcoming 23-point second-quarter deficit to beat the Clippers in Los Angeles on Thursday; that is the biggest comeback victory by any team in 2015-16. Golden State has won its last 25 regular-season home games. The last team to defeat the Warriors on their home floor was the Bulls, 113-111 in overtime, January 27, 2015.
* Jimmy Butler scored a season-high 32 points in Wednesday’s win over the Suns, with 14 of the 32 coming in the fourth quarter. Those 14 points were a career high in the fourth quarter for Butler, who now has had 10+ points in the fourth quarter of a game 13 times; the Bulls are just 3-10 in those contests.
* Draymond Green has a team-high 92 assists on the season. Not only does that lead all starting forwards, it is third most in the entire league.
* Stephen Curry had 40 points and 11 rebounds in Thursday’s comeback victory over the Clippers; it was his fourth 40+ point game of the season, which is the most by any Warriors’ player since Latrell Sprewell (6) in 1996-97. In addition, Curry has had at least 20 points in each of his last 13 games. That is a new career mark for Curry; his previous longest streak was 12 straight games, which he has done twice.
