Bulls vs Hawks Post-Game
The Bulls took on the equally miserable Atlanta Hawks at the UC on Wednesday night. Forget about the Jabari Parker Revenge Game Part 2. This one was all Bulls from start to finish. The Bulls won with a 4-year record for team points with a score of 136-102.
Zach Lavine seemed to have an answer for critics, and the calls on social media for his trade to another team for seemingly nothing. He’s definitely on a mission and with tonight’s performance of 35 points in just 25 minutes, including 7 threes.
This was capped off with Lauri chipping in 22 points in 23 minutes. The offense had 32 assists in a complete victory.
The new pairing of Denzel Valentine and Daniel Gafford is appearing to be a formidable duo off the bench for the Bulls with some productive play together.
But when it came to the win, Bulls Head Coach Jim Boylen gave a lot of credit to Kris Dunn with the way he played against the Hawks, especially guarding Trae Young.
Boylen: “KD is a good player. He's a top-level defender in this league.”

 

 
State of The Bulls: 
Coach Boylen: “Zach wants to be great. He's working. His habits are good. I'm happy for him.”
Question for the panel:
Is Zach Lavine turning the corner, even if the Bulls haven’t found their winning ways yet? Can he be a team leader, an all star and consistently play at an elite NBA level?
Last week Wyse and I go every game right except for the Golden State loss. Which don’t get me started on that trash fire of a game..
