Zach LaVine has been impressive for the Bulls this season, to say the least. However, his team remains at the bottom of the Eastern Conference standings. It has been an up-and-down season so far for the Bulls, who have also lost their past few games to the Atlanta Hawks, Utah Jazz, Phoenix Suns and Golden State Warriors. They look to make a playoff push as they face the Memphis Grizzlies twice, Orlando Magic and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the next coming days.
As for LaVine, the All-Star was averaging 27.5 points, 5.1 rebounds and 4.9 assists prior to Sunday’s game. he had a stellar 50-point performance against the Hawks on Friday, but it was unfortunately not enough. The Bulls recently acquired Nikola Vucevic and Al-Forouq Aminu to hopefully help Zach make a playoff push this 2020-21.
Luckily for the Bulls, it’s easier to climb the East standings. They have to look out for the Indiana Pacers, New York Knicks and Boston Celtics who are above them by just a couple of games. They currently find themselves with a play-in tournament spot.
