Chicago Bulls at Sacramento Kings Game Info: Boogie’s Revenge
This is game three for the Chicago Bulls on their current road trip, and it’s going to be a fun one. They’ll be visiting the Sacramento Kings and DeMarcus Cousins, who’ll be fired up to get a little payback after the last meeting between this two sides.
It was a phantom foul call. The kind that makes you cringe in embarrassment. A compulsory tweet of the whistle from a referee that feels like he owes it to the 35-year-old Dwyane Wade, because he felt bad for the guy who couldn’t finish a dunk.
It couldn’t been worse. Mo Speights couldn’t even get the ball over the rim recently for the Los Angeles Clippers and then there’s the most hilarious of them all, when Luigi Datome, playing in the Turkish league, was completely rejected by the side of the backboard.
So yeah, it could have been way worse for Wade. But it might not have been worse for Cousins and the Kings. It takes an entire game of individual results to produce the sum outcome of the game, but that play was at a pivotal moment and went in the wrong direction. Cousins is easily one of the best, and most emotional, players in the entire league. Look for that to be evident.
You can also look for Cristiano Felicio, but you probably won’t find him. The champion of the hearts of all Bulls fans is going to miss some time with an injury picked up in Friday’s loss to the Houston Rockets. He led the Bulls with 10 rebounds against the Kings when they met in January.

There’s a possibility that Jimmy Butler will return. They could probably use him, given the inconsistency of Wade recently. Butler also put up a team-high seven assists the last time these two teams faced each other. Sure, he’s a great guard and can pour in points, but it’s becoming more infrequent and takes him quite a while to get going. One of those times when Wade did get it going was against the Kings. He scored a team-high 30 points in the Bulls victory, which included some free throws after his botched dunk.
