that's twice now he's had a monster first half and hasn't been able to have a monster game largely bc of his minutes limit. i get it and it's smart, but dang.

i'm not sure i've ever seen a shooter like this on the bulls...at least, not one with more than just that skill (unlike say korver or kerr). the polish on him already at his age is very impressive.

Man, if Dunn could learn to shoot.....He'd be a VERY interesting piece himself. As it is, I'm still hopeful he develops into a true starter caliber player.

And protect that ball. That's been a big knock on him.

Markkanen has 12 points and 7 rebounds at halftime on 5/7 shooting, including 2/2 from 3

12 and 7 in the first half for Lauri. 5-7 and 2-2 from 3.

Edit: Maybe not? ESPN is changing stats lol. Still, appears to have had a decent half.

Only 860 more games until he breaks Jordan's double digit scoring streak record guys.

Guess he finished with 13 and 9. Which is fine, very balanced scoring tonight.....But, what in the blue hell are they doing beating Orlando by 20? In Orlando.

Imagine how disappointing the return will be when the Bulls trade him in a few years.

i saw someone else make this joke on twitter and i just didn't see how it lands...the bulls have traded a good player for a disappointing return in recent memory...once? (which ironically he was part of the return for)

typically they've traded disappointing players, sometimes for surprisingly good returns.

Well, you can't expect a ton in return after he tears up his knee.

It's really a roulette wheel as to how this will not work out for the Bulls, and I just happened to pick that one of the many, many options as to how this will inevitably end poorly for them.

This 7 footer is shooting 7 threes per game at above 40%

His advanced stats are kind of insane. He could legitimately push close to a 60% TS.

They weren't good players, but I'm guessing dumping Taj and McDermott for exactly horsefeathering nothing for no real reason is probably part of the joke.

Nice come from ahead tank W in OT. Lauri struggled in the back end of his first back to back. 14 and 7 though.
