The AllStar is proud to present The Daily Swish, a digest of what’s shaking and baking in your favorite basketball league. This is the place to help you start your day (or end it) with notable newsy nuggets from around the association.

The Chicago Bulls erased a 19-point deficit to overcome the Boston Celtics and the short-handed Sixers got the job done at home against Damian Lillard and the Trail Blazers.

Making Headlines

The high flying Chicago Bulls continued their rampage across the league, defeating Boston 128-114. Chicago proved to be a class above the Celtics who led the game 103-89 after three quarters. A 21-3 Bulls run in the fourth dashed Celtic hopes and DeMar DeRozan scored 10 points in the final six minutes to seal the win. A clearly frustrated Marcus Smart called out Celtics stars Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown in his post game interview saying, “They don’t want to pass the ball.”

In Philadelphia, the short-handed Sixers pulled off an unlikely win over the Trail Blazers. Despite missing Tobias Harris (health and safety protocols) and Joel Embiid (rest), the Sixers rallied to a 113-103 victory over the Blazers. Philly fans took the opportunity to show Blazers guard Damian Lillard love during the game by chanting “We want Lillard”. Lillard was an offseason acquisition target for the Sixers though a trade never materialised.

The new City Edition jerseys for all 30 teams were unveiled yesterday
