Bulls Young Guns Put On A First Half Clinic


For the second time in three games, the Bulls are hosting a tanking western conference foe. For the second time in three games, it appears as if the Bulls will be walking away victorious.

The Memphis Grizzlies entered tonight’s game on a 14 game losing streak and a record of 18-45, the worst in the league. The fans might want a loss, but this young bunch has pride and they’re making some pretty plays.

First we had a Kris Dunn behind the back pass to Lauri Markkanen for a dunk.

Then they connected again.

And again.

Markkanen doesn’t need Dunn to feed him dunks, he can Finnish on his own. Get it? Yeah you get it.

Dunn can score a bit, too.

And Zach LaVine was sure to get in on the fun as well.

The best wins during the season of #tank are wins that feature a heavy dose of Dunn-Markkanen-LaVine. The trio has combined for 29 of the Bulls 64 point half on 11-20 shooting, while adding seven assists to just three turnovers. If the Bulls hold on to this lead, hopefully the trio can add to tonight’s highlight reel
