The Bulls have established an odd, but longstanding streak: they’ve won every regular-season home game played on a Thursday TNT special since 2013. And they’ve taken down all formidable opponents while establishing this super-specific dominance in a talented league.

Remember that sleepwalking disaster against Denver on Wednesday? Of course you do. Somehow the Bucks rebounded with a 112-101 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers (yes, the Clippers) in a performance many didn’t see coming.
