Lauri Markkanen scored 20 points on 7-of-13 shooting (including three treys) with eight rebounds and two steals in the Bulls' 119-87 loss to the Pistons in Wednesday's finale.
Markkanen beat expectations and certainly the ones we had around here. He did miss 14 games, mostly due to a back issue that lingered all year long, but he also had a left ankle injury and some personal absences. He finished with a rock solid top 60-75 (9/8 cat) season when on the floor and vastly outproduced his late round ADP.
