After dropping their first three games in the Las Vegas summer league, the Bulls got in the win column with a 77-74 victory over the Los Angeles Clipper Saturday.
Malcolm Thomas opened more eyes by posting his second straight double-double with 21 points and 16 rebounds. He shot 9-of-11 from the floor and added four assists.
Jimmy Butler led the way with 23 points and five rebounds. He attacked the basket early and often, resulting in a perfect 10-for-10 at the free throw line on top of his 6-of-10 performance from the floor.
Rookie point guard Marquis Teague picked up his play with 13 points and five assists.
The Bulls close summer league action with a 3:00 p.m. game Sunday against the Milwaukee Bucks.
