The Chicago Bulls are currently in the hunt for a spot in the play-in tournament as they are currently in ninth place with not a lot of time left in the regular season. Every game is crucial for the Bulls, and on Sunday night, they picked up a huge road win against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Alex Caruso stepped up big time in the game as he finished with 21 points, and Chicago won 109-101.

That was a big win for the Bulls, and it was a big game for Alex Caruso. It seems like someone new steps up every time Chicago wins a game, and on Sunday, it was Caruso.

“AC was amazing, the passion, the will; definitely one of a kind,” DeMar DeRozan said after the game, according to an article from “For a guy who’s been banged up throughout the year, every time he steps out there on the court he lays it out there, puts his heart and soul into the game. It’s amazing to have a teammate like that. For him to carry us tonight for what he did on both ends of the floor is a sign of his greatness and the heart and mindset he has toward the game. He’s too smart of a basketball player to be overlooked, He knows how to play the game at a high level. Not just defensively; obviously, that part stands out. But he’s one of the smartest basketball players I’ve ever played with. His IQ to the game is amazing. When you have someone that smart, they know where to be offensively and make it easier on everybody else.”

That win helped Caruso and the Bulls get one step closer to securing the nine seed in the East.
