Sampson's energy and Bogdanovic's big shot elevate Kings past Bulls

Lopez had to be held back by teammates after being called for a second technical with 4:21 left in the second quarter.

It was one of the few highlights for Chicago in the 104-98 setback Monday at the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento.

Lopez finished the game with two points and three personal fouls in just 14 minutes of play.

With 15.4 seconds left in the first half, the 22-year-old drove past his defender towards the basket and was met at the rim by Sacramento's JaKarr Sampson.

Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg, associate head coach Jim Boylan, assistant coach Randy Brown and a team security official had to plead with an angry Lopez to depart from the court.

Bulls rookie Lauri Markkanen won't return to the lineup Monday against the Kings after all.

Chicago started off this game well, leading 28-9 after the first quarter while limiting Sacramento to a season-low for scoring in any period this season.

It was a critical matchup of two teams vying for position, the Bulls and Kings both racing to the bottom in an effort to corral one of the top four picks in the last NBA Draft before lottery reform takes place. "I told him, 'That's bad.' I'm not sure the reason behind the technical, but I supposed the officials are absolute and who am I to discredit that?" Lopez said. "I was a little bit surprised, in my mind, such a subdued response".

He'll look to keep it going versus the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday.
