Chicago Bulls’ Mike Dunleavy Was a Bloody Mess Last Night (Video + GIF)

The way Mike Dunleavy played last night, the Chicago Bulls probably wish somebody would elbow him in the face every night.

Early in the second quarter against the Houston Rockets, Dunleavy drew a charging foul on Chandler Parsons. In doing so, the Bulls forward got whacked by Parsons’ elbow just above the right eye, opening a nasty gash that left blood streaming down his face. After getting up, Dunleavy walked straight off the court and into the locker room, where it took 10 stitches to close the gash.

When Dunleavy ran off to the locker room to get stitched up, he had zero points. However, he returned for the second half and scored a game-high 21 points to lead the Bulls to a big 111-87 win over the Rockets.

The irony of catching fire after taking a blow to the head was not lost on Dunleavy, either. After the game he quipped, “The hit knocked a little sense into me, I guess.”

Yeah, I guess.
