Steph shines, Mr. 3.5 arrives and the Warriors coast

Dubs crush the Bulls minus KD and Dray on Friday night

I’m not sure if the Windy City Bulls were dressed up as the Chicago Bulls, but sheesh, they’re awful.

Without Kevin Durant and Draymond Green after a 2-2 road trip, the Golden State Warriors rolled to a 143-94 rout, and really, everybody except me thought this story would end like this:

Yep, that was me underestimating the powers of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, and not realizing just how pathetic the 2017 Chicago Bulls are.

Heck, if rookie Jordan Bell played against the Bulls every night — the same team that sold his right to the defending champs for $3.5 million — he’d be first-team All-NBA.

Bell balled out as a starter for the first time in his career, dropping seven points, six rebounds, six blocks, four assists and two steals. He even caught an alley-oop from Zaza Pachulia! Don’t believe me? Just watch for yourself:

Also, I think we have a nickname for Mr. Bell: thanks to a slew of users on Twitter, he’s now known as Mr. 3.5. Don’t get it? Well, here’s why:

Poor Bulls. As if getting beat by 49 points wasn’t enough, a rookie who they traded away is trolling them. Suckers.

But as much as everyone is gushing over Bell’s heroics, Curry showed why he’s still the most fun player to watch in the NBA.

After picking up two early fouls, Curry led a 45-21 blitz in the second quarter to break this game open. Sometimes, it looks like he’s practicing for a future game of H-O-R-S-E.

Here’s a highlight package courtesy of the Warriors:

It’s like he was at the circus clowning these fringe NBA players on the Bulls. He finished with an absurd line of 33 points, seven rebounds and four assists. Curry was +39 in just 27 minutes.

No Durant, no Green, no problem. Bulls stink, Warriors don’t. Happy Thanksgiving, everybody.
