In a season that has featured a dramatic amount of twists and turns for the Chicago Bulls, Monday night’s 115-109 win over the Charlotte Hornets provided another series of intriguing subplots as the Bulls snapped a five-game losing streak. Rajon Rondo, who hadn’t started a game since Dec. 30, was reinserted in the starting lineup and rattled off a season-high 20 points with seven rebounds and six assists.
Rondo, who has been outspoken about the fact that he thought the reasoning for his benching earlier this season was “bulls—,” made the most of his opportunity playing alongside Jimmy Butler and Dwyane Wade again. “That’s what I came here for,” Rondo said. “But like I said, it’s a process I went through. It didn’t kill me. It’s decisions people made that’s out of my league.”
