Bulls’ Tomas Satoransky goes between the legs of Hawks player and feeds Zach LaVine for the slam

Tomas Satoransky

The Chicago Bulls’ Tomas Satoransky and Zach LaVine make one heck of a duo. They showed why against the Atlanta Hawks.

As the Bulls defeated the Hawks, 111-93, in their preseason finale, Satoransky and LaVine teamed up for one of the better highlights of the preseason with this ridiculous slam. It included a between-the-legs pass from Satoransky and LaVine — the former slam dunk champion — finished it off with an earth-shattering slam.

The dunk was so off-the-charts that even Lavine reacted in a surprised manner following the sequence.

As if that wasn’t impressive enough, the Bulls’ Wendell Carter Jr. also pulled off another dunk highlight when he finished over the Hawks’ Bruno Fernando — and then proceeded to flex shortly afterwards. Of course, that netted Carter a technical foul, which just makes the highlight that much better.

While it just preseason — and against the Hawks, no less — the Bulls’ performance was an impressive one. Chicago rookie Coby White posted 29 points (10-of-14 from the field) while converting on six treys. It is the most points scored by a Chicago rookie in the preseason since Derrick Rose in 2008. Not bad company to be involved in.

Making the stats look even more impressive is the fact that Chicago lofted up 46 3-point attempts. Lauri Markkanen spoke after the win and commented how the Bulls are trying to play faster and shoot a lot of 3-pointers.

“We’re trying to play fast, shoot a lot of threes, share the ball and make unselfish plays.”
While Chicago made only 15 of those 46 threes, it’s at least a sign that this 2019-20 squad with Tomas Satoransky and Zach LaVine is actually aiming to improve — and win.
That mindset is an improvement over the past two seasons, which saw the team finish with a total of just 49 victories.
