Among the recent notable surprises lately in the 2017-18 NBA season has been the stellar play of the Chicago Bulls. The Bulls had been on a seven-game winning streak before running into the high-powered Cleveland Cavaliers and even then they managed to give them a run for their money in the narrow 115-112 loss.
Their recent success has can be attributed to the dynamic play of point guard Kris Dunn. While Dunn has been everything and more for the Bulls this year, the second-year man out of Providence feels he still has room to improve, according to K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune:
“I need to put a little more work in and improve more each game. I’m not satisfied at all,” Dunn said. “I can do a little more.”
Dunn is averaging 15.0 points, 7.7 assists, and 2.0 steals in the month of December. Needless to say, he has been Chicago's catalyst on both ends of the floor during their best run of the year.
However, it is encouraging to see that he is not satisfied with his stellar performance. The former fifth overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft came into the league with high expectations before ultimately floundering with the Minnesota Timberwolves his rookie season. Since then, Dunn has taken full advantage of his new opportunity with the Bulls after potentially establishing himself as their franchise point guard.
