➢ Justin Holiday has made a three in all 18 games this year, the second-longest streak in franchise history to start a season behind his own 26-game streak last year.
➢ With Ryan Arcidiacono (.462) and Antonio Blakeney(.462), the Bulls are one of only two teams to have two qualifying players shooting 45.0+ percent from three this year, along with the Warriors (Stephen Curry and Quinn Cook).
