As the rest of the city was going crazy for the home run derby at Wrigley Field last night in Chicago, the Chicago Bulls hit the United Center hardwood against the New Orleans Pelicans. If you missed it, here’s the good, the bad, and the ugly from Monday’s loss.

Six Chicago Bulls players scored in double figures last night — led by Bobby Portis and his 20 points off the bench — but the Bulls fell to the New Orleans Pelicans on Monday night, 123-115.

The Bulls led by 12 at the end of the first half, and were actually up by 20 with roughly two and a half minutes left in the first half, but the Pelicans started their surge with an 8-1 run to close the opening half of play.

Anthony Davis was his usual robotic self, scoring 26 points on 16 shot attempts, while pulling down eight rebounds.

Through the first three quarters, the Bulls had plenty of good things happening. At one point early in the second, they were 9-of-19 from the three-point line. The bad part about this? They finished the game shooting 2-for-13 from beyond the arc.

Here’s a breakdown of the good, the bad, and the ugly from Monday night’s loss to New Orleans.
