Denzel Valentine went for 10 points, seven rebounds, seven assists, one turnover and one 3-pointer in the Bulls’ loss to the Warriors on Wednesday night.
Valentine shot just 3-for-10 but he finds ways to help when his shot isn’t falling. Denzel was starting to get comfortable until Zach LaVine came into the lineup. After that change, Valentine’s minutes should be monitored. As LaVine loses his rust, Valentine’s minutes should start to take a hit which is a shame. Not only did he outplay LaVine on Wednesday night, he also outplayed starters Justin Holiday (eight points, six boards, 2-of-12 shooting) and Lauri Markkanen (11 points, eight rebounds, one block, 4-of-12 shooting).
