The Chicago Bulls were handed their ninth loss of the season by the Los Angeles Lakers (90-101). After the game, the Bulls head coach Billy Donovan talked about the defending NBA champions and what challenges they present on the court.

“[The Lakers] are really, really good … You have to move [them] around. They’re too long, too physical, too smart. The more stationary you get against them, the more stagnant you get against them, the more it plays into their hands,” Donovan said, per Mike Trudell.

For the Lakers, it was their 13th win of the season, which keeps them atop the Western Conference, just above the Jazz and the Clippers.
