Chicago Bulls mascot dons a James Harden-esque beard

Publish date:

With the Houston Rockets in town, the Chicago Bulls mascot, Benny the Bull, decided to don a beard similar to that of one their opponents, guard James Harden.

If Benny is trying to distract Harden, it doesn't appear to be working, as he leads the Rockets with 18 points through three quarters. Benny may need to change his tactics, because Houston is beating Chicago, 89-83, at the end of the third quarter.
