Windy City Back too it's Winning Way! 

The Windy City Bulls snapped their 6 game losing streak last night against the Canton Charge 102-96. 
Bulls guard Antonio Blakeney found his rhythm early in the game scoring 29 points shooting 11/19 from the field and contributing defensively with 7 rebounds; in just 3 quarters. Blakeney sat out the fourth quarter as head coach Charlie Henry relied heavily on his bench to carry the team to a victory. Implementing guys like Tyler Harris, Karrington Ward and newcomer Stephan Hannah allowed players who normally have to carry the team all four quarters to catch a breather. 
Bulls Jarell Eddie bringing a sense of leadership to the team in the fourth quarter, had 19 points and 7 rebounds. The Bulls had an easy win last night. But like every team the Canton Charge will make adjustments tonight as they finish up a back to back with the Windy City Bulls. 
“We will have to review footage, make some adjustments. I’m sure Canton will go back and make some adjustments as well” said Antonio Blakeney.
The Bulls will have to make smarter shot selections tonight. Improve their ball handling and improve their points in the paint to win tonight’s game. Tip off is at 7 pm.

Skid hits 6 vs Grand Rapids 


The Windy City Bulls have yet to snap a six game losing streak falling to the Grand Rapids Drive 122-117. With the Bulls trailing most of the game. They had the chance to catch up late in the fourth quarter. But failed to do so despite bringing it the score to within 5. 

Bulls leading scorer Antonio Blakeney struggled to find a shooting rhythm, Wednesday night, he was 6/23 from the field and 2/11 from the 3 point line. On assignment from the Chicago Bulls was Cameron Payne; he had the hot hand scoring 29 pts. Fresh off of a 10 day contract; Jarell Eddie had a solid game as well, scoring 16 pts and was a solid 4/4 from the three point line.
Despite solid shooting from Eddie and Payne; the Bulls struggled to find a presence in the paint. Failing to control Grand Rapids Drive’s Landry Nnoko. Nnoko proving he was a force to be reckoned with, he had a solid double double adding 23 points and 22 rebounds to secure the win for the Drive.

Time to Stomp on the Herd? 

Jasmine Morales


Will the Windy City Bulls be able to turn a mini winning streak into a full on run? The Bulls have won their last two games with Antonio Blakeney and Jaylen Johnson leading the way in points and rebounds. Antonio Blakeney leading the league in scoring with an average of 34.3 PPG and Jaylen Johnson continuing his double scoring streak to 11 with a career high of 29 points on 12 of 18 shooting while grabbing eight rebounds.
So what can the Bulls do to continue their winning streak? Bulls head coach Charlie Henry believes they have all the ingredients to finish out games. " They are willing and hungry to close out games" the key to closing out games is "staying consistency defensively all four quarters" said Henry.
The Bulls face the Wisconsin Herd tonight. They are 1 and 1 this season against the Herd. The Bulls will have to do without Diamond Stone who was traded to Salt Lake City on January 17th. Guard Jarell Eddie signed a 10 game contract with the Boston Celtics today and will also not be with the Bulls. The Bulls will adjust their lineup with new edition's Christiano Felicio and Paul Zipser who are on assignment from the Chicago Bulls.
Coach Henry favors his Bulls for winning tonight's game. His key to the game are to:

•Take care of home court
•Do the same things they talk about everyday
• Do not stray from who they are as a team unit
Overall Coach Henry is pleased with how the team has progressed. Tip off is at 7pm

Season Winds down for WCB 

By Colin Mieczkowski 

The Windy City Bulls season is coming to a close and we have had the opportunity to witness players from the Chicago Bulls come to the D-League and show off their skills. Among the key contributors from the parent club included Paul Zipser, Jerian Grant, Bobby Portis, and the latest, Cameron Payne.  

Zipser and Grant specifically were regulars, playing more than two games for the squad throughout the season. One of the shining moments for Windy City came from Grant, who hit a buzzer-beating shot on Dec. 9 against the Canton Charge.  

In that game, Grant would drop 20 points and dish out eight assists with the game-winner being the final blow. Bobby Portis also had his big moment with Windy City, dropping 32 points against the Westchester Knicks on Jan. 6.  

Denzel Valentine also had his shot with the WCB, where he broke the single game three-point record with eight. Eventually, former D-League 3-point shootout champion Jarell Eddie would take over that spot.  

Almost every time a player from Chicago is called down to play for Windy City, the team wins. This shows how important it is to bring young talent down to the D-League.  

Not only does this develop skills, but it also makes Windy City that much better. It was also long overdue for Chicago to have a D-League squad.  

Players who get called down don’t have to go far to get to the Sears Centre located in Hoffman Estates, IL. With guys coming up and down, it’s an easy trip, with what is normally a roller coaster life.  

It has also helped players such as Grant, normally known for his ability to drive to the basket, deepen his offensive skills. In the month of February, Grant shot 48% from behind the three-point line for Chicago.  

This is something the NBA Bulls needed, especially after parting ways with Doug McDermott, one of the team’s best three point shooters. Giving young players a chance to develop will be huge for the organization in the future, making the addition of Windy City a great fit.  

Portis, who was given the opportunity to really shine for Windy City, gave credit to the D-League team for his development.  

“It was fun being down there to get some reps so I can come back” Portis said. “Everyone embraced me and let me do my thing and I had a great time”.  

Portis said this during a night where he had 17 points on an amazing 72% shooting from the floor including grabbing 11 boards. Although the Bulls would lose the game against the Philadelphia 76ers, he was one of the young players that shined.  

Coach Nate Loenser, who has gotten his first head coaching opportunity, has done a solid job with a roster that constantly changes. Portis gave praise to the former Bulls video coordinator.  

“It was great, I’ve known him for two years now” Portis said. “He was our video guy last year, and in the Summer League he had the chance to coach us too so I had a great feel for him and I think he’ll be a great coach for them (WC Bulls)”.  

No doubt that the young Loenser (37) has become popular with his players. When the team is in the huddles, and as Loenser draws up his plan, player chatter stops, and everyone stops to listen to him.  

He’s a player’s type of coach, and that bodes well for players coming down from Chicago. And his ability to be able to coach both young and experienced talent is remarkable, and is a big reason why, when players come down from the NBA, they help Windy City win games.  

It’s always exciting to watch young players develop, and with the Windy City Bulls right at the Sears Centre, it gives local fans a chance to witness future stars. The Windy City Bulls close out the season Saturday, April 1st, tip-off is at 7pm.

Windy City Bulls and the Sioux Falls Skyforce RECAP 

By Colin Mieczkowski 

The Windy City Bulls lost in a tough game against the defending champion Sioux Falls Skyforce  129-124 to fall to 17-21 on the season. Alfonzo MicKinnie, the Bulls’ first ever All-Star, led the way with 29 points to go along with five rebounds. 

On the other side, it was two-time All-star Keith Benson who carried the load for the Skyforce with 30 points. Benson was also the Summit League’s career leader in blocks during his college days at Oakland University. He only recorded one block in the game against the Bulls. 

Towards the end of the third quarter, the Skyforce had a 14-point lead. However, the lead was cut down to nine by end of the period. 

Then, in the fourth quarter, the Bulls would make an impressive comeback, to take the lead with a little under seven minutes to go in the game. In the end, some missed shots by the Bulls, and some made free throws by the Skyforce would shut the door. 

Despite the cringe worthy loss, point guard Jon Octeus played well, scoring 17 points while dishing out five assists and grabbing five rebounds. Thomas Walkup, who sat out with an injury, had some nice things to say about Octeus. 

“I’m super proud of Jon” Walkup said. “He deserves all of the credit he’s getting, with how hard he’s been working so he deserves everything that’s coming to him”. 

The final score would be 129-124, as the Bulls finished 1-1 over the weekend.

Late Rally Runs Out as Bulls Streak Ends 

By Colin Mieczkowski


The Windy City Bulls lost to the Toronto Raptors 905 for the third time this season, 113-104 off of 22 points by three point shooting specialist, Brady Heslip. It was a blowout early on in favor of the Raptors, but a late run and a couple of big threes from Jarell Eddie closed the gap a little bit.

Eddie was red hot again, scoring 28 points, however, it was just a tad bit late. Some sloppy passing by the Bulls would be the major difference in this game, giving away the ball 21 times.

The Raptors were able to get a ton of inside looks which ultimately played a big role in their victory. The Bulls were able to lock down the Raptors on the inside later on, but then they leaned heavily on Heslip and Bruno Caboclo who hit some threes to extend the lead.

With the victory, it was the largest win margin for the Raptors 905 all season, winning by nine points. The second biggest victory they had was against the Bulls as well, back on Nov. 23 when they won by six.

For the Bulls, Jake Layman was the only player in double figures in points until Alfonzo McKinnie and Eddie did so later in the game. The strong defense down the stretch was a positive, and they started to do good job of defending Raptors 905 7’3” center, Edy Tavares in the paint.

On another note, the Windy City Bulls will not have any players represented in the D-League’s All-Star game. Eddie thinks it’s tough, considering all of the talent surrounding the team.

“It’s tough, because there are some great players in the D-League, but we also have some great players here in Windy City” said Eddie. “It’s tough but it’s something you got to use to motivate you”.

Despite the fact that the Bulls won’t have any all-stars in their first year of existence, they will have a presence in one of the events. Alfonzo McKinnie, who has thrown down numerous monster dunks and ally-oops throughout the season, will participate in the D-League Slam Dunk Contest on Feb. 18 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.

So, despite the lost to a very good Raptors 905 team, the Bulls can definitely take some positives out of it. They’ve shot the ball well lately, and the defense continues to improve, and now they have a young player in McKinnie who will get his shot to shine during All-Star weekend.

Be sure to listen to all home games, and read up about the team on the official radio home of Windy City Bulls basketball, SportsTownChicago.com.
