Chicago Bulls veteran small forward Thaddeus Young is averaging only 21.5 minutes this season, the second-fewest mark of his career.

Young, who signed a three-year deal with the Bulls in free agency, has no idea why he’s playing so few minutes:

“That’s something you’ve got to ask coach,” Young said, via The Athletic. “I’m not sure. But whatever the team needs me to do, I’ll do it. That’s something that they have to figure out.

“I’ve been pretty healthy for the majority of my career, knock on wood. In the past three years I’ve only missed about 10 games. Eight were about three seasons ago, and one and one the last two seasons. So for the most part I’m healthy and ready to go each and every night. So whatever coach sees fit to do, I fall in line and have to ride with it and go out there and continue to play with my teammates.”

In 20 games this season for the Bulls, Young is averaging 8.9 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.7 assists. The lefty is shooting 40.2 percent from the field, 32.4 percent from beyond the arc and 55.6 percent from the free-throw line.

These numbers are all well down from last season with the Indiana Pacers. In 30.7 minutes per game, the veteran power forward averaged 12.6 points, 6.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists while shooting 52.7 percent overall, 34.9 percent from 3-point land and 64.4 percent from the charity stripe.

The Bulls are 6-14 on the season, 12th place in the Eastern Conference standings, and they need Young to perform better after they made him their top priority in free agency.

Coby White Jersey

PORTLAND, Ore. — As a Timberwolves rookie in 2014-15, Zach LaVine had it rough.

His rookie duties were assigned by a plethora of hard-core veterans like Mo Williams, Kevin Martin and none other than Kevin Garnett.

Practice would end. And Garnett would start booting basketballs into the stands of whatever arena the Timberwolves would be in for LaVine and fellow rookie Andrew Wiggins to fetch.

Coby White and Daniel Gafford have it easy.

“I haven’t been getting it as bad as some other rookies I know,” Gafford said following Sunday’s practice at Portland State University. “I thought there was a slight chance I was going to have to pay for dinner the other night. But we all chipped in. I was grateful for that.”

Added White: “They’ve been kind of light on me, so I appreciate that. We really don’t have that many vets, to be honest. Thad (Young) is a true vet and then there’s OP (Otto Porter Jr.), Zach and Sato (Tomas Satoransky). So I got lucky.”

Fetching towels and drinks, picking up shoes to give to the equipment manager and making food runs for the group before the Bulls’ charter plane leaves O’Hare have been the rookies’ biggest and most consistent tasks.

Maybe White’s theory holds some water. After all, the Bulls are the league’s third-youngest team. Or perhaps LaVine just recognizes the need to keep White, in particular, fresh.

When White is on the court, particularly alongside LaVine, it presents an offensive challenge for opposing defenses to consider. LaVine can see less double-teaming and blitzing.

“Zach is always in my ear because he has seen what I’m capable of and how good I can be. He tells me it’s my time, tells me to do what I do and to be Coby White and take over,” White said. “For our go-to guy to believe that much in me and encourage me means a lot. It gives me a lot of confidence.”

Coach Jim Boylen has been consistent with his approach regarding White’s closing role. If he has it rolling, which he did in road victories at the Grizzlies and Hornets or the home victory over the Knicks, White plays the majority or all of the fourth quarter alongside LaVine.

“I think he’s a big moment guy, I think he has that in him,” Boylen said. “I have confidence that he’s not scared about that moment. The big shot doesn’t bother him. He’s a competitive guy, so it’s easy to leave him out there.’’

LaVine leads the Bulls by averaging 6.3 points in the fourth quarter. White ranks second at 3.8 points. They average the same amount of playing time in the fourth, a team-high 7.3 minutes per game. Only Wendell Carter Jr. at 7.8 fourth-quarter minutes plays more.

“I think the league has seen him enough that you have to have a decent defender on him, so when you have him and Zach out there together I think that can put some pressure on the defense,” Boylen said. “Usually the primary guy takes Zach, and then maybe the secondary guy takes Coby.”

Trying to score against fourth-quarter defenses beats fetching basketballs from stands.

“In the fourth quarter, everything goes up a different level. So it’s a big deal being out there,” White said. “I’m just glad (Boylen) has faith in me when I have it rolling. Rookies don’t always get that opportunity. I’m blessed and thankful for it.”

Denzel Valentine Jersey

Choose best cheap authentic Denzel Valentine Chicago Bulls jersey online, womens youth Denzel Valentine gear sale, buy Swingman Throwback nike Denzel Valentine jersey including black/gold/purple/white/blue/camo/green/pink colour.The more you buy, the more gifts you give, the best quality, and the fastest logistics.

During the fourth quarter of Monday night’s road victory over the Kings, coach Jim Boylen called timeout. A double-digit lead had shrunk to single digits. The Bulls have blown similar games before during this season.

As Boylen huddled with his assistant coaches before addressing the players, Denzel Valentine approached the five currently in the game who were sitting on the bench. Even from 15 feet away, it was easy to spot Valentine’s passion and positivity.

“I was just trying to keep us up,” Valentine said late Monday in the postgame locker room. “They were going on a run and I kept saying, ‘We’re good. It’s cool.’ Sometimes when adversity hits us, we struggle. Having that ability to be positive is huge.”

Valentine has natural leadership qualities. Management cited them upon drafting the Michigan State product in 2016.

But Valentine knows as well as anyone a simple truth of sports.

“When you’re playing, your leadership can have more impact. When you’re not playing, you can say the same stuff but you’re not playing,” he said. “When you’re competing, your energy is up. You’re positive. It just naturally comes out of me when I’m playing.”

Valentine finally is.

It may not always be big minutes. It may not be every game, although Valentine has appeared in four straight and logged double-digit minutes in three.

But it’s something. And for a proud competitor who recently found himself behind Shaq Harrison even with Otto Porter Jr. and Chandler Hutchison sidelined and the Bulls struggling to shoot from 3-point range, that’s better than nothing.

“It’s been cool,” Valentine said. “It definitely feels good to be playing again and competing again. I’m just loving it.”

Valentine said he leaned on his family, agent B.J. Armstrong and his internal confidence to keep him going through his period of inactivity that he knows may come again. In seven games, he’s averaging 4.1 points and 1.9 rebounds in 7.7 minutes and shooting 38.9 percent from 3-point range.

“I’m always going to believe in myself no matter what,” Valentine said. “Whether I play or not, that’s not in my control. I know what I can do. It’s all about the right opportunity. When I get the opportunity, I’m going to make the most of it.”

Against the Kings, Valentine beat the shot clock with a difficult 3-pointer from a tough angle in the corner and followed that with a nifty assist in transition to Daniel Gafford in the third quarter. He also isolated and shot an airball on a 3-pointer as the quarter ended.

But like his season, Valentine persevered. He finished with six points, three rebounds, two steals and an assist in just shy of 12 minutes.

“At the end of the day, I’m blessed to be in the NBA. I’m living my dream job,” Valentine said. “So many people came up to me and told me I’d get an opportunity. And here it is.”

Max Strus Jersey

Choose best cheap authentic Max Strus Chicago Bulls jersey online, womens youth Max Strus gear sale, buy Swingman Throwback nike Max Strus jersey including black/gold/purple/white/blue/camo/green/pink colour.The more you buy, the more gifts you give, the best quality, and the fastest logistics.

The Windy City Bulls tip-off the G League season this weekend with a home and home series against the Wisconsin Herd. NBC Sports Chicago will televise all 24 home games this season from the Sears Centre either live or on tape delay.

The Bulls’ G League affiliate starts the season with a brand new coach in Australia native Damian Cotter and a promising roster, featuring Bulls’ two-way players Max Strus and Adam Mokoka, former Loyola star Milton Doyle and P.J. Dozier — a high-scoring two-way player for the Denver Nuggets who has been assigned to Windy City.

Strus is an especially intriguing prospect after setting a DePaul record with 113 made 3-pointers during his senior season with the Blue Demons in 2018-19. The Hickory Hills native earned second team All-Big East honors last season after averaging 20.1 points, 5.9 rebounds and 2.2 assists.

Strus wasn’t selected in the NBA draft in June, but quickly drew the attention of scouts and executives with a strong performance for the Boston Celtics Summer League team in Las Vegas. Boston signed Strus to a two-way contract but released him at the end of training camp, and the Bulls swooped in to add him to the roster with their one remaining two-way spot.

It’s been an amazing success story for a player who didn’t attract much recruiting attention in high school and started his college career at Division II Lewis University. So, Strus is more than ready for the challenges ahead in trying to prove himself worthy of an NBA roster spot.

“I’ve always believed in myself, starting Division II out of high school I’ve always had that chip on my shoulder, so I still carry that with me,” Strus said. “People still don’t know who I am, but that’s okay. Hopefully I can make the hometown proud here, keep getting better individually and making this organization better as a whole as well.”

Since Windy City will run the exact same plays as the NBA Bulls, the players on the roster can make a smooth adjustment in the event of a mid-season call-up. Don’t forget, the Bulls signed both Walter Lemon and JaKarr Sampson after a rash of injuries last season. Strus’ 3-point shooting ability makes him a prime candidate to catch on with an NBA team at some point, but for now, he’s just focused on enjoying some success at the G League level.

“For me, playing in the NBA is probably going to be about making shots and defending, so that’s really what I’ve got to focus on,” he said. “Do that here and then carry it over when I get lucky enough to get the chance to get called up to the Bulls, but just got to keep working hard every day and the coaches will put us in a great situation to make that happen.”

Two years ago, Loyola coach Porter Moser and most of the Loyola players came out to the Sears Centre to support Doyle, who was playing as a visitor for the Nets’ G League team, and Strus anticipates the same kind of support from his former coaches and teammates at DePaul.

“Oh absolutely, I guarantee there will be at least a few,” he said. “It’s a great relationship I have with coach [Dave] Leitao and the players that are still there from behind. I’m still talking to guys there and they’ll for sure be at a couple games.”

For local high school stars like Strus and Doyle, getting the chance to pursue their NBA dreams right at home makes the anticipation of a new season even more exciting.

Zach LaVine Jersey

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Even before injuries to Otto Porter Jr. and Chandler Hutchison, wing depth loomed as an issue for the Bulls.

Hutchison was coming off a rookie season shortened by injury. Porter has battled nagging injuries throughout his career. And Denzel Valentine was coming off missing an entire season to reconstructive ankle surgery.

On Tuesday, the Bulls fly back to Chicago following their three-game trip with Porter and Hutchison still out and Valentine not playing much although recently in the rotation. Coach Jim Boylen mostly has relied on a three-guard lineup featuring Kris Dunn, Ryan Arcidiacono and Coby White. Both Shaquille Harrison and Dunn have started at small forward on this trip.

“It is frustrating. I try not to look at those things like it’s my frustration. I feel bad for the guy,” Boylen said. “Obviously, the team needs (Porter). But I feel bad for him. I think he’s frustrated. It wears on him. He’s a competitive guy. He’s a winning player. So it’s very difficult for him.”

Porter, in his first comments to reporters in a while, agreed.

“It’s definitely tough watching the guys go through that,” Porter said of the team’s 6-14 start. “I just try to remain positive. I still try to be a leader to them in the locker room, what I see out there when I’m watching, what we can do better. I’m always going to be voicing my opinion on what we should do or just adjustments out there on the court.”

Boylen said Porter and Hutchison will be re-evaluated this week in Chicago. Porter has played just nine games this season because of a soft tissue injury to his left foot. Hutchison is on his third injury this season, a sprained right shoulder.

Originally, the Bulls listed Porter’s injury as a sprained left foot. But a second MRI exam on Nov. 19 revealed bone bruising which the team disclosed in a release and Porter cited it as a bone bruise in his remarks to reporters.

“It takes time. Every day it gets a little better. Baby steps,” Porter said. “You can reaggravate it absolutely. And that’s what we’re trying to monitor to make sure that these days that I do activities, the next day it’s not overaggravated or swells back up. We’re definitely watching it close.”

Porter said he has been able to do some elliptical work and lift weights with some spot set shooting.

“I have no idea about coming back sooner or later.,” Porter said. “The new MRI I’m supposed to be taking is just supposed to see how far along I’ve come. It will eliminate any other things that might’ve happened as far as like tissue and stuff like that. Looking forward to it.”

Just like Boylen is looking forward to Porter’s return, whenever it happens.

“We miss his calm, veteran demeanor,” Boylen said. “I said this last year and this year too: He settles us down a bit, maybe at times we need that. He makes timely shots. He’s one of our better shooters. And he has positional size, which is a huge part of that big wing position. We miss those things. He has done a terrific job of trying to help the younger guys and stay connected even though he has been hurt. It’s difficult. But he has a veteran voice. He’s one of our captains. And he’s doing a good job of that.”

Cristiano Felicio Jersey

Choose best cheap authentic Cristiano Felicio Chicago Bulls jersey online, womens youth Cristiano Felicio gear sale, buy Swingman Throwback nike Cristiano Felicio jersey including black/gold/purple/white/blue/camo/green/pink colour.The more you buy, the more gifts you give, the best quality, and the fastest logistics.

Did you forget that Cristiano Felicio was still on the Chicago Bulls?

Well, he was in the news yesterday so hopefully this will help jog your memory.

Felicio broke his right wrist in practice on Monday and is out four to eight weeks.

“I’m very disappointed for him,” Boylen said via NBC Sports Chicago. “Hopefully we can get him back soon.”

Not to be overly harsh, but this injury is about as inconsequential as they come. He has yet to make the active roster this regular season, and sits behind on the depth chart rookie Daniel Gafford and four other players.

When he first came to the Bulls, Felicio showed some promise as a rim-running big man that could also rebound a little. He carved a niche for himself with the 2016-2017 squad by developing good pick-and-roll chemistry with Dwyane Wade (although he took a triple-double away from him). At 6-foot-10-inches tall and only 23 years old, the Bulls were probably correct to give him an opportunity when they signed him in 2015.

But in the summer of 2017, the Bulls then gambled on Felicio’s early flashes of productivity and inked the Brazilian big man to a four-year, $32 million contract mere minutes into free agency.

Since his big payday, Felicio has been recalled to the Windy City Bulls 10 times, while at the NBA level he’s averaged 4.8 points and 3.9 rebounds per game. Felicio has been in the bottom 15 among centers who averaged at least 15 minutes per game in player impact estimate in each of the last two seasons. Adequate for a 10th or 11th man on a minimum-level salary, and valuable if you want to tank, but not for a guy making about $8 million per year.

The contract given the production is an epic disaster, but by all accounts Felicio is a good guy. He even admitted to the Chicago Tribune last year that he felt pressure to live up to the expectations that came with how much he was getting paid.

“At some point, I let the contract get in my head a little bit,” Felicio said. “I felt I had to prove myself more than I did last year. And I think at some point that frustrated me a little bit because I wasn’t playing as well as I did last year. And then I started not getting any minutes. And that frustrated me even more. I knew I had to get out of that funk. I talked to the coaches and they helped me.”

The Bulls have one more season after this one to pay him an exorbitant amount of money to fry on the bench, after which one of the front offices biggest gaffes will finally be over.

Ryan Arcidiacono Jersey

Choose best cheap authentic Ryan Arcidiacono Chicago Bulls jersey online, womens youth Ryan Arcidiacono gear sale, buy Swingman Throwback nike Ryan Arcidiacono jersey including black/gold/purple/white/blue/camo/green/pink colour.The more you buy, the more gifts you give, the best quality, and the fastest logistics.

Some games, it seems Ryan Arcidiacono spends as much time on the floor as the mops that ballboys use to sweep up sweat.

Some of his pursuits for loose balls are physical. They look painful. Not that Arcidiacono ever would let on if they were.

“I got a football background. I try to be mentally and physically tough and do whatever it takes to help our team win,” Arcidiacono said. “I don’t want anyone to see when I’m hurting. I think it’s a mindset that my teammates see in me and my opponents see, as well. If they [see] me sluggish, they’ll try to capitalize on that. I try to be mentally tougher and not let them pounce on anything.”

Does anyone wonder why coach Jim Boylen trusts this guy?

Now, whether Arcidiacono landing in the closing rotation for three straight games over players projected to be ahead of him in the rotation is good for the rebuild is a story for another day. (Spoiler alert: It’s probably not.) This story is about a player who moved from a two-way contract, to a non-guaranteed contract, to a guaranteed contract and now an unexpected rotation spot.

“Arch is helluva basketball player,” coach Jim Boylen said. “He’s a smart kid. He’s a tough kid.”

Arcidiacono’s pursuits of loose balls sometimes lead to comical results. In Monday’s loss to the Bucks, he and fellow Villanova product Donte DiVincenzo chased two on one possession.

“The first one, we dove together,” Arcidiacono said. “And then there was one by the bench, and I told him at the free throw line, ‘I wasn’t diving for that one.’ He said, ‘Yeah, neither was I.’

“That first one was good. It reminded me old practices back at Villanova. Donte is such a great athlete and freak competitor.”

Arcidiacono also tied up Giannis Antetokounmpo twice, leading to separate jump ball situations. The 6-foot-11 Antetokounmpo won both, obviously, and offered something of a back-handed compliement of the 6-foot-3 Arcidiacono, saying, “he’s the only one from the Bulls that’s going diving for the balls on the floor.”

In a savvy move, Arcidiacono actually tried to pawn the jump ball duties off to a taller teammate. It didn’t work.

“I knew I wasn’t going to win. There aren’t many people I’d win against,” Arcidiacono said. “But I’m still going to be competitive, get on the floor.”

Arcidiacono is shooting 50 percent from 3-point range, leading the Bulls in charges taken and averaging 2.1 assists to just 0.5 turnovers. A costly one in the fourth quarter still irked Arcidiacono well after the fact.

“I’m kicking myself,” he said. “I can’t make those plays.”

Through 14 games, the Bulls have been outscored by a staggering 46 points in the fourth quarter. That’s a big reason why they’re 4-10. And it’s also why Arcidiacono is getting this opportunity. Boylen trusts him.

“Competing, making shots, making good deep-drive decisions, taking charges, diving on loose balls, playing winning basketball,” Boylen said when asked why he’s closing with Arcidiacono. “He makes other people better. We need more of that. And he does it.”

Whether he continues to get the opportunity to make plays — positive and otherwise — in the fourth quarter remains to be seen. Whatever happens, Arcidiacono knows his role and takes the right approach.

“I’ve been trying to knock down shots, get the ball moving and make the simple, solid play[s]. I think our team benefits from that,” he said. “Finding Coby [White] in transition and getting him going a little bit helps us. I try to do all the little things — get on the floor, make those little possessions count.

“I’ll play my heart out for this team and this city and do what’s best for the Bulls. If [Boylen] tells me to play, I’ll play. If he wants me to be on the bench, I’ll cheer on my teammates as best I can.”

Critics will condemn a team for missing with a draft choice even in the bottom third of the draft. But there’s really few “worst” drafts at No. 22 because it’s so much hit and miss at No. 22 in the draft. It’s rare a team will get an All-Star since there only have been three from the No. 22 slot in almost the last half century. There have been many productive players selected, like Scott Skiles, Kenny Thomas, Jerry Reynolds, Randy Wittman, Chris Mills, Jarrett Jack, Johnny Davis and Courtney Lee. They became starters and often double figure scorers, though not at the All-Star level. The only All-Stars since 1970 selected from No. 22 were Reggie Lewis, Truck Robinson and Norm Nixon. George McGinnis was selected there, but more as a future since he went to the ABA.

Here’s a look at the best and worst No. 22 selections:
Best:
Norm Nixon – 1977
Norm Nixon, 1977

Nixon came out of modest Duquesne and went on to be the lead guard for two Lakers championship teams while making an All-Star appearance. He was exceedingly popular, but traded to the then San Diego Clippers for Byron Scott so Magic Johnson could be the primary ball handler for the Lakers. He became an All-Star with the Clippers, but then was injured.
Leonard Robinson – 1974
2. Leonard “Truck” Robinson, 1974

He played for five teams, but twice was an All-Star as one of the most rugged rebounders in the league, leading the league one season with 15.7 rebounds per game while averaging 22.7 points. He followed that with a 24 and 13 season. He played 11 seasons and was all-NBA first team in 1978.
Reggie Lewis – 1987
3. Reggie Lewis, 1987

The high scoring guard from little Northeastern had back to back seasons averaging 20.8 points before his shocking death from heart failure practicing in the summer before the 1993-94 season. He’d had a heart episode in that season’s playoffs. He made one All-Star team and had been considered a Celtics star of the future.
Scott Skiles – 1986
4. Scott Skiles, 1986

The high scoring and rugged Michigan State guard wasn’t doing many redraft workouts since he was in jail. Skiles was on probation from a drug violation when he was arrested for drunk driving. Though Skiles never spoke about it, many at Michigan State say he accepted the drug charge to cover for a teammate. Skiles had a difficult start with the Bucks and Pacers before going to Orlando and becoming one of the league’s top distributing guards and still holds the all-time NBA one-game assists record. He led the NBA in assists in 1993 and was a league Most Improved Player. He went on to coach four teams, including the Bulls.
Johnny Davis – 1976
5. Johnny Davis, 1976

The rookie guard was coming off the bench for the Portland Trailblazers in the 1977 playoffs when Dave Twardzik was injured. Davis moved into the starting lineup and his speed invigorated Portland’s defense and fast break as a key factor in the run to the title. He then went on to a high scoring career after being traded to the Indiana Pacers and has been a longtime NBA coach and assistant.
Worst:
Jeryl Sasser – 2001
1. Jeryl Sasser, 2001

He played two seasons with Orlando and then overseas without much NBA impact. Later in that draft were four All-Stars with Gerald Wallace at 25, Tony Parker at 28, Gilbert Arenas at 31 and Mehmet Okur at 38. Plus, there were other contributing players like Bobby Simmons from DePaul, Jamaal Tinsley, the Bulls Trenton Hassell and, yes, Brian Scalabrine at No. 35.
Zoran Planinic – 2003
2. Zoran Planinic, 2003

He started overseas, played three unproductive seasons with the Nets and went back overseas. It was a rich harvest of long term rotation players and starters picked afterwards, including Travis Outlaw at 23, Carlos Delfino at 25, Kendrick Perkins at 27, Leandro Barbosa at 28, All-Star Josh Howard at 29, Luke Walton at 32, Zaza Pachulia at 42 and then All-Stars Mo Williams at 47 and Kyle Korver at 51.
Casey Jacobson – 2002
3. Casey Jacobson, 2002

He played four seasons in spot duty with three teams and then overseas. Detroit Pistons playoff star Tayshaun Prince was the next pick in that draft with high scoring John Salmons later in the first round and All-Star Carlos Boozer in the second round.
Marcus Williams – 2006
4. Marcus Williams, 2006

He had a brief NBA run before going overseas for a long stretch. All-Star Kyle Lowry came two picks later and then All-Star Paul Millsap in the second round. Rugged defender P.J. Tucker also was a second round pick.
Clyde Mayes – 1975
5. Clyde Mayes, 1975

He rarely played in the NBA, but had a long career overseas. The next pick was famed scorer and All-Star Lloyd (World B) Free. Another All-Star, Dan Roundfield, went later in the first round. There also was Bobby Gross, a key role player for the Portland championship team and Wilbur Holland, who had a strong run for the Bulls late in the 1970s after being a fifth round pick. Another bad one was 2009 when the Trailblazers selected Victor Claver. Later came Taj Gibson, Wayne Ellington, Omri Casspi, DeMarre Carroll, Jonas Jerebko, Marcus Thornton, Danny Green, Patty Mills and Patrick Beverley.

I looked at 10 mock drafts for the No. 22 pick, and six had the Bulls selecting Boise State senior small forward Chandler Hutchison. No other player was mentioned more than once. The rumor last month when Hutchison stopped working out for teams was that he received a promise to be picked in the first round. The speculation was that it was the Bulls and it seems most everyone believes that.

SAN FRANCISCO — Warriors coach Steve Kerr walked onto the Chase Center podium about 20 minutes after Wednesday’s 104-90 win over the Bulls with a bandage along the side of his right palm.

The bandaid covered the wound caused by a clipboard he broke in the second half, marking another example of the coach’s historically fiery personality.

“I’m allotted two [broken clipboards] a year,” Kerr joked Wednesday evening. “I’m day-to-day. No stitches.”

While the exact moment of the damage is unclear, the cut came during a timeout in the second half. After building an nine-point lead in the fourth quarter, the Bulls went on a 6-0 run to cut the Warriors lead to three. In the second half, Golden State committed 12 of its game-high 21 turnovers, much to Kerr’s dismay.

“We just had a stretch there where we were very careless, particularly with transition defense and we let them sneak behind us for layups,” Kerr said. “Those are cardinal sins.”

In response to the bad play, Kerr broke the clipboard, then drew up a play without any medical attention, leading blood to gush over his replacement clipboard, amusing his players.

“He was animated but he kept going, blood on the clipboard,” Warriors forward Omari Spellman said. “I was completely confused. He’s actively writing on the clipboard.”

The wreckage Kerr’s actions were apparent following the Warriors’ fourth win of the season. In addition to the bandage, Kerr had a blood streak along the side of his pant leg during his postgame availability.

Clipboard abuse isn’t new for Kerr. During Game 1 of the 2016 NBA Finals, he broke a clipboard in a coach’s huddle following a defensive lapse from his team. Nine months ago, in the final minutes of a regular-season loss to Portland, he threw a clipboard to the ground in protest of a call against forward Draymond Green, leading to the coach’s ejection.

Kerr’s latest bout with the greaseboard comes as he is adjusting to coaching a new type of team. No longer the favorites to win the NBA title, injuries to key players have plummeted the Warriors’ hopes for a postseason berth. Despite the win, the Warriors remained the league’s worst team with just four wins.

Worse — after losing the previous two games by a combined seven points — Kerr criticized his own coaching down the stretch of games, including Monday’s loss to the Thunder, when the team surrendered a 25-5 in the final minutes of the game, adding to Kerr’s frustration Wednesday evening.

“We were 3-15 coming into the game so every play matters,” Kerr said. “Every possession matters and you got to fight for everything.”

Following the outburst, Golden State responded, outscoring the Bulls 26-17 over the final 12 minutes, taking a 17-point lead in the final two minutes to seal its fourth win of the season.

“I thought our guys fought down the stretch and deserved to feel good about the game,” Kerr admitted.

As for the players, Kerr’s outburst was seen as a positive action by Golden State’s young locker room.

“I love it,” Warriors rookie forward Eric Paschall said. “A coach like that cares, he wants to win. I feel like we responded correctly tonight and played well tonight.

“My man’s emotional. You’re in the heat of the moment, you want to win the game. So that’s all that really was. We responded and I feel like we did a good job.”
