PORTLAND, Ore. — There were more than a handful of excuses a few weeks ago, and Bulls big man Lauri Markkanen was well-versed in all of them.

A new system, new teammates, a sore oblique, needing the ball more to get into a rhythm, better communication. Pick one, any one, and believe what you want.

But after practice Sunday at Portland State University, Markkanen offered no excuses. The only place he wanted to put the blame was on himself.

‘‘I can’t really say anything about [the system] at this point,’’ Markkanen said. ‘‘We’ve played a good amount of games now in this system already, so it should have come.’’

It hasn’t. Markkanen has been the biggest disappointment on the Bulls’ roster and among the biggest in the NBA. Through 20 games, he is averaging 13.3 points and seven rebounds and is shooting 34.9 percent from the field, including 28.2 percent from three-point range.

This from a player who averaged 18.7 points and nine rebounds last season and, along with guard Zach LaVine, was one of the pillars upon whom the Bulls’ rebuild was relying.

The biggest indictment of how bad things have been for Markkanen has come late in close games. There have been a handful of games in which coach Jim Boylen has benched Markkanen in favor of guard Ryan Arcidiacono or guard Coby White.

No wonder Markkanen showed up an hour early to practice Sunday, looking to get some extra work in.

‘‘I believe he does,’’ Boylen said when he was asked if he thought Markkanen has the makeup to get out of his slump. ‘‘I believe he has the makeup to overcome a difficult situation, some adversity. Again, I go back to the work. If you work, I think you can fight through anything. You work and care, and I think he does care.

‘‘I want him to handle in-game adversity better, move to the next play, put that one behind you, win the next play. Those are kind of the things we talk about.’’

Much of that talk went on after practice, with Boylen calling Markkanen over for a quick heart-to-heart. He reminded him the three-pointer is falling in practice, has fallen the previous two seasons and will start falling again.

Markkanen was a 36.2 percent three-point shooter as a rookie and a 36.1 percent three-point shooter last season. Those are the numbers the Bulls believe in.

‘‘I’m not worried about my shot,’’ Markkanen said. ‘‘It’s going to come. I’ve shot it well in practice, so I know I can do it. I just have to do it in the game. That’s not a concern for me; it’s going to fall.

‘‘It’s more the overall play. Obviously, I put the highest pressure on myself, so I’m trying to reach that level. It’s been frustrating that I’m not getting there. At the same time, it works as motivation and keeps pushing me to work hard.’’

Boylen is trying to help in the motivation department.

‘‘I believe in his shooting,’’ Boylen said. ‘‘I believe in him as a player. He came here an hour early this morning and got his workout in. Then he went through the full practice, so he’s doing what I think you have to do, which is work your way out of it. I’m confident he will.’’

Bulls forward Luke Kornet underwent nose surgery today due a sinus obstruction. The obstruction is the result of a broken nose he suffered while playing with the New York Knicks in Dec. 2018.

Leading up to the Bulls game tonight at home against the Milwaukee Bucks, Boylen expanded upon the Bulls official announcement.

“Kornet had sinus surgery this morning,” Boylen said. “He had blockage and some issues from a previous fracture from when he was in New York. We just felt it was time to go in there and clean that thing out. That happened this morning at 6 a.m. He’s out. Surgery went well. We’ll have more to report as we go. Originally, it was a 7-10 day thing where he’d be back. I think it’s one of those things they don’t know until they get in there how extreme it is. But he had blockage and it needed to be done.”

Kornet was drafted by the Knicks in 2017 and this is his first season with the Bulls.

Shaquille Harrison Jersey

Better defensive numbers from the Chicago Bulls this season can be directly attributed to the efforts of players like Shaquille Harrison of late.

A big 20-point victory over the Central Division foe Detroit Pistons put the Chicago Bulls in position to gain real ground in the Eastern Conference standings. The Bulls moved to a record of 5-10 on the season before a key Nov. 22 showdown against a former superstar wing of this team, Jimmy Butler, and the Miami Heat.

The Bulls head into this showdown against the Heat with a record of 5-10. Meanwhile the Heat have 10 wins heading into this game. It will come at home for the Bulls at the United Center with a tip-off of 7 p.m. CT. It would be one of the most impressive wins of the season thus far if the Bulls were able to pull this one off as 4.5-point underdogs.

A key factor that could help the Bulls in this matchup with the Heat is the breakthrough of combo guard/wing Shaquille Harrison. In the win over the Pistons, Harrison contributed with 15 points, 11 rebounds, five assists, three steals, and one block. In spotty minutes on the floor for head coach Jim Boylen and the Bulls, Harrison has a team-high defensive rating of 96 thus far.

The 6-foot-7 and 190 pound Harrison could be exactly what this Bulls team needed off the bench in terms of a defensive presence. If he’s going to contribute in a positive sense on the offensive end too, then Harrison could actually be one of the most valuable pieces in the rotation for Boylen this season.

His 1.4 defensive box plus/minus rating he posted last season was already one of the best for any role players for the Bulls down the stretch. Add a positive offensive impact (last season had a 101 offensive rating), then Harrison should be vying for a seventh or eighth man role in the rotation in terms of the allotment of minutes.

What Harrison also adds to this rotation for the Bulls is a lengthier perimeter presence on defense. There’s really only three players that Boylen can play as true wings. And two of them, small forwards Chandler Hutchison and Otto Porter Jr., recently underwent various injury issues that kept them off the court.

Between the 6-foot-4 point guard Kris Dunn and Harrison have the two best defensive ratings on the team so far this season. A rejuvenated Bulls effort on the defensive end of the floor could help the Bulls take another step forward in this rebuild. Giving a bigger role to Harrison makes a lot of sense for Boylen and the Bulls moving forward.

Daniel Gafford Jersey

The Chicago Bulls need help off the bench to get beyond the four-win mark they sit at now. Could rookie center Daniel Gafford be that answer?

The final score of 115-101 from a Nov. 18 home loss at the United Center for the Chicago Bulls against the Central Division foe Milwaukee Bucks didn’t do their true efforts on the floor that night justice. The Bulls kept it close throughout, at least until the reigning NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo took over for the Bucks late in the fourth quarter.

There was actually one point where the Bulls owned a 99-98 lead in the fourth quarter before the Bucks went on their 17-2 run to end the game. That actually wasn’t one of the bigger letdowns of the season so far. In the midst of a season where the Bulls might be getting off to just as poor of a start as they were last year, signs of progress are very welcome.

A down start from some of the other Bulls frontcourt rotation players gives a gaping opportunity to the Bulls second round draft pick from back in June. Former Arkansas Razorbacks big man Daniel Gafford had a spectacular night in his first real regular season minutes in the NBA. He was likely the sole reason why the Bulls were actually hanging with the Bucks up until the fourth quarter.

There’s a very valid argument that Gafford was actually the best player on the floor for the Bulls in that double-digit loss earlier in the week to the Bucks.

Here’s a look into the definitive case for Daniel Gafford of the Chicago Bulls to get more playing time and a bigger role under head coach Jim Boylen moving forward.

Cristiano Felicio Jersey

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.

Steve Kerr Jersey

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.”

Our guess is that no one was more thrilled with Evansville’s huge upset of Kentucky than former Ace Jerry Sloan.

The legendary Bulls guard and Jazz coach was famously tough. He had a bit of that Larry Bird thing. He just wasn’t going to back down to anyone.

Sloan played in the NBA from 1965 to 1976, mostly for the Bulls (he was a Bullet for his first two seasons).

Later he coached the Utah Jazz and infused his sense of toughness into the franchise’s DNA.

In 2016, Sloan was diagnosed with Parkinson’s and Lewy body dementias which currently is essentially a death sentence. We expect he’ll fight that with the same passion he fought for his entire career. It’s a fight he’ll almost certainly lose, but the one thing you always knew you were going to get from Sloan, just as we saw with Evansville, is that he’ll fight.

Nova to retire Ray and Washington jerseys

It’s another exciting year for college basketball at Villanova. As part of the celebration of its 100th season of basketball, Villanova will retire the jerseys of two great players that starred for the Wildcats at its Dec. 21 home game against Kansas. Allan Ray (2002-06) and Jim Washington (1961-65) will be honored in a halftime ceremony as part of “Alumni Day” at Wells Fargo Center.

“It is with great pride and excitement that we announce we will retire the jerseys of Allan Ray and Jim Washington,” said Villanova head coach Jay Wright in a statement. “They are two outstanding representatives of what a Villanova basketball player should be.”

Ray finished his 13-year professional career earlier this year that started in 2006 with the Boston Celtics. In 2002, Ray came to Villanova as one of the headliners in an acclaimed recruiting class that also included Randy Foye, Jason Fraser and Curtis Sumpter. That core group helped re-establish the Wildcats as a national force, leading Villanova to 52 wins as upperclassmen that included appearances in the NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 (2005) and Elite Eight (2006), along with the 2006 Big East regular season title.

As a senior, Ray, a 6-foot-2 guard, was a consensus All-American and finalist for the Naismith Award as National Player of the Year. Over his four-year seasons, he scored 2,025 points, one of only eight players in program history to go over the 2000-point mark. Ray — who wore No. 14 — joins his former backcourt partner Foye with a retired jersey.

One of Ray’s big moments as a player with Villanova came against Kansas on Jan. 21, 2005. He scored 27 points to help Villanova defeat the unbeaten No. 2-ranked Jayhawks at the building now known as Wells Fargo Center Center while a blizzard gripped the Delaware Valley.

Washington, a West Catholic product, played a key role for head coach Jack Kraft. Wearing No. 50, Washington established himself as one of the nation’s top rebounders averaging 14.0 boards a game in three seasons. Washington’s 1,194 career rebounds still ranks No. 2 all-time at Villanova. He was the Philadelphia Big Five Player of the Year in his senior year of 1964-65.

In 1965, the 6-foot-7 Washington was the sixth overall selection in the NBA Draft and went on to play through 1976 in the league for the St. Louis/Atlanta Hawks, Chicago Bulls, Philadelphia 76ers and Buffalo Braves.

This is Villanova’s first jersey retirement since Feb. 12, 2011, when Foye was honored at halftime of the Wildcats’ Pavilion game with Pittsburgh. With the addition of Ray and Washington, the men’s basketball program will have retired 21 former jerseys, including 16 players, four coaches and long-time trainer Jake Nevin. A plaque in the lobby Finneran Pavilion recognizes each honoree, while the jersey number remains in circulation. The one exception is the No. 11 worn by Paul Arizin (1947-50).

Imhotep’s Scott and Roman’s Hart playing for Maryland

Imhotep Charter’s Donta Scott and Roman Catholic’s Hakim Hart were two of the high school basketball players in the city last year. Now, Scott and Hart are getting meaningful minutes on the University of Maryland’s basketball team that is currently ranked No. 6 in the country according to latest Associated Press poll.

Both players are freshmen. Scott, a 6-foot-7, 225-pound forward, is averaging 4.8 points and 3.5 rebounds while playing 15 minutes a game. Hart, a 6-foot-6, 200-pound guard, is averaging 3.7 points, 1.7 rebounds and 1.7 assists over 9.3 minutes a game.

Maryland will play Temple in the Orlando Invitational on Thanksgiving Day. The tipoff is at 11 a.m. on ESPN2.

Temple signs hoops prospect Quincy Ademokoya

Basketball standout Quincy Ademokoya out of Norcross High School in Georgia has signed a national letter of intent to attend Temple University, announced men’s basketball coach Aaron McKie. Ademokoya, a 6-foot-6, 185-pound guard, joins Jahlil White, a 6-foot-7, 180-pound guard from Wildwood (New Jersey) Catholic, who signed a national letter of intent on Nov. 13.

“We are very excited to welcome Quincy to the Temple Basketball family,” said McKie in a statement. “Like Jahlil, he is a long, athletic guard who can play both ends of the floor. Quincy is a fine young man who comes from a great family and will fit in very nicely with our program.”

Ademokoya, who is coming off a a great summer in the Eite Youth Basketball League with the Georgia Stars, averaged 15.3 points and 5.3 rebounds in helping his previous team, Dacula High, reach the 2019 Georgia State playoffs. He shot 45 percent from the field (153-of-338) and 38 percent from three (63-of-165). Ademokoya, a Bloomington, Illinois native, also played for the Chicago-based Nike Elite Youth League AAU team Meanstreets.

Retired basketball player Jalen Rose recently had something to say about his former team on his talk show Get Up! on ESPN. Rose seems to think the best way for the Bulls to succeed going forward would be to find a new coach.

“I’m going to say something about the underachieving Chicago Bulls. They need a new coach,” Rose said. “They really do because they have so much young talent on that squad, and I don’t think they are developing properly.”

Despite what critics like Rose have been saying, both management and ownership believe in Boylen. Bulls VP of operations John Paxson has spoken publicly about Boylen’s skills at teaching the fundamentals and holding his players accountable. K.C. Johnson answered fan questions about Boylen and the Bulls coaching in his weekly mailbag, which you can read here.

Both on and off the basketball court, no one was bigger than Michael Jordan. MJ dominated the game and everything around it; whether it was new sneakers, baggier shorts, or anything else adjacent to the NBA, he influenced it. Jordan even made it to the big screen, teaming up with Bugs Bunny in the beloved movie Space Jam.

While the movie obviously enhanced Jordan’s business portfolio, it also helped his on-court production. In fact, the film helped His Airness win three additional NBA championships.
Michael Jordan’s early career

Despite his eventual ascension to the sport’s highest heights, Michael Jordan’s basketball career didn’t get off to the smoothest start. He famously failed to make his school’s varsity basketball team on the first attempt; after a dominant year with the JV squad and a fortuitous growth spurt, he aced the next tryout.

After high school, Jordan moved on to the University of North Carolina. He hit the game-winning shot to win the National Championship as a freshman and only continued to improve. When he made the jump to the NBA, MJ seemed to get even better.

While Jordan immediately took to the professional game, his Chicago Bulls teams initially had some trouble getting past the physical Detroit Pistons. Once they broke through that roadblock, however, no one could stand in their way. On the back of His Airness’ unbelievable offense, the Bulls won three straight NBA titles; Jordan led the league in scoring and took him the Finals MVP Award each time. But then he retired.
Starring in ‘Space Jam’

In October 1993, Michael Jordan retired from professional basketball. While he tried his hand at baseball, he tried his hand as a movie star.

While Space Jam didn’t hit theaters until 1996, the movie was set during Jordan’s retirement. On the screen, the iconic star was recruited by Bugs Bunny and company to help them win a basketball game against aliens who have stolen the talent from several NBA stars.

MJ might not have been an experienced actor, but he performed well on the set. “He did what Michael does,” director Joe Pytka explained. “He did as well as he could do. He played himself, and remember, a lot of the film is based on his life, so there were realistic references there. He was very professional — he showed up, he knew his lines, we made it as easy as possible.”

Pytka didn’t just help Jordan’s acting performance, however. The director claimed that he gave Michael one piece of advice that helped him win three additional NBA titles.
Michael Jordan teams up with Dennis Rodman

On the set of Space Jam, Jordan and Pytka would frequently talk basketball. During one of their conversations, the director made a personnel suggestion that changed the course of NBA history.

“I said, ‘Why haven’t you guys gone after Dennis Rodman?’ Because Michael was going back to the Bulls later that year,” Pytka remembered. “He said something about [how] he didn’t know whether he could play with Dennis. I said, ‘Look, the guy doesn’t shoot, he plays defense, he rebounds, and he doesn’t get in your way. You should go after him.”

“That night, Dennis Rodman was at this Beverly Hills Hotel with Michael,” Pytka continued, “and they made the deal that Monday.” Rodman was now a Chicago Bull.

The forward slotted into the void left by Horace Grant and was an immediate fit with the squad. Despite some of his infamous antics, Rodman continued to dominate the glass, allowing Jordan and Scottie Pippen to work their magic. During his three years in the Windy City, the Bulls won three straight NBA championships.

Everyone knows how Space Jam helped cement Michael Jordan’s place in popular culture, but the movie also helped shape his NBA career. Without Dennis Rodman, who knows if His Airness would have second three-peat.
