Canales Has Debut Like None Other In Nba History From Elias: Attention, NBA head coaches: Don't send out that dry cleaning. Two days after Mike Woodson, in his first game leading the Knicks, led New York to a 42-point win over the Trail Blazers, and one day after relieving Nate McMillan as the Trail Blazers head man, Kaleb Canales, in his NBA head-coaching debut, led Portland to a 100-89 victory in Chicago. The Bulls had come into the contest with a league-best 36-9 (.800) record. Canales was the first individual in history to make his NBA head-coaching debut against a team that possessed a winning percentage of .800 or better, at least 40 games into a season-and now he's also the first to win such a debut. Previously, the coach who had made his NBA head-coaching debut against the team with the highest winning percentage (again, at least 40 games into a season) was Johnny Egan; on Jan. 21, 1973, Egan led the Rockets to a 107-103 win over the Knicks, who were 39-11 (.780) entering that game. about 11 hours ago | Elias Sports Bureau And : Bulls Finally Lose After Taking A Lead Into The 4th Quarter From Elias: The Bulls took a 79-78 lead over the Trail Blazers into the fourth quarter on Friday night, but saw the Blazers win the fourth quarter, 22-10, and walk off with a shocking 100-89 victory. It marked the first end of the Bulls' streak of 49 consecutive wins in regular-season games in which they took a lead into the fourth quarter. That had not only been the NBA's longest current winning streak of that sort, but it was the longest winning streak of that kind that the league has seen since Utah won 67 straight games in which they took a lead into the final quarter, from 1997 to 1999.
