This Jimmy Butler trade just keeps getting better and better. Zach LaVine returns Saturday, but Lauri Markkanen is just taking care of business. He belongs in this league and tonight proves just that. Lauri hit a new career high of six three pointers, but now he’s adding on to it.
Lauri Markkaken has hit 6 3-pointers for 1st time in his career.

He has hit eight three pointers tonight, which makes him the eighth Bull in franchise history to do it.
Bulls with 7+ threes in a game:
Ben Gordon (7x)
Niko Mirotic (4x)

That has not even been the best part of the night. There’s a reason why they call him the Finnisher. It’s because of nasty dunks like this that just make you jump out of your seats.

Lauri is developing into a true and elite basketball player. His great potential has been shown because of his development. He’s a total offensive package.
Markkanen's potential is off the charts. That poster slam over Kanter is one of the best highlights of the season & he's 7-9 on 3's so far. Markkanen has the total package offensively.

Get excited Bulls fans, because the Finnisher has arrived!
