What to Watch For

  • How about the Bulls big 3 last night!? Lavine, DeMar, and Vooch combined for 109 of the Bulls’ 139 points last night and took the game over when they needed to. Finally, the Bulls appeared to be the more desperate team and played with a sense of urgency. Let’s see a little more of that tonight as well against a very solid team in Miami coming off a big win over the Grizzlies
  • The Bulls have generally been fine coming off back-to-backs this season, but given the massive performance from the big 3 last night, I’m interested to see how they come out tonight. Will they be prone to a slow start? The Bulls don’t necessarily need to get off to the fastest start, but they’re playing a Heat team that’s had two days off so they’ll need to weather the storm early.
  • Why yes, I am excited about Zach LaVine’s efficiency in scoring the basketball last night why do you ask? LaVine was great again last night with 39 points on 15-25 shooting and chipping in with a 4-9 effort from beyond the arc. It’s been amazing watching LaVine take the next step as an elite scorer in this league. Speaking of Bulls three-point shooting, they shot 45.8% from deep last night but only put up 24 shots from three. The percentage is nice, but the volume needs to be bumped up a big going forward.
