The Warriors visited the United Center and the Chicago Bulls in their first matchup of the season. Derrick Rose and Stephen Curry are both healthy and led their teams in a good game. If both teams are at full strength, this could possibly be a finals preview. In case you missed the game, we have you covered:
Warriors began slow and were down 4-0 early until back-to-back scores from Draymond Green and Klay Thompson. The team got it together and began scoring; midway through the first, they lead 20-8. Green has connected on 3-4 three pointers and a dunk. After the timeout, Andre Iguodala entered for Harrison Barnes as the first player off the bench. In an up and down quarter, the Warriors finished the first 12 minutes up 28-22. Draymond led all scorers with 11 points.

The second quarter was all Bulls early. A minute and a half in and the Warriors lost their lead. They found themselves down five off a quick 11-0 Bulls run. An uncalled offensive goaltending violation got Coach Kerr heated and called for a technical. The Warriors finally woke up and played solid defense. The offense followed and regained a 42-36 lead. The entire team chipped in with four of the starters scoring at least 7. Of their 54 points, 27 came from transition.
