MCINTOSH: HOIBERG SEES WHAT I SEE IN TONY SNELL
Words by Eugene McIntosh
Fred Hoiberg walked out of the locker room with a smile and a sigh of relief on his face as he got his first NBA win as coach of the Bulls in a 97-95 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers. “Congrats on the first win coach!” “I appreciate it guys….81 more to go” he replied. It may be the first game of the season but this was a great balanced team win.
Hoiberg got solid contributions from 10 guys. Tony Snell played a big role in the win with timely shots and great defense. He looked as confident as I’ve seen him. He took his shots as they came make or miss and just looked more fluid overall.
