Lauri Markkanen still managed to post 12 points, 10 rebounds, a 3-pointer and two steals against the Wizards on Saturday despite a poor 5-of-19 mark from the floor.
Markkanen was Chicago’s top offensive option tonight and Washington has a few pesky defenders that have locked up better players, so it’s not one to get too upset about. He was only 1-for-8 from deep and even two more makes would’ve improved his line substantially. With the Bulls looking to turn the show over to their younger players, Markkanen shouldn’t have any issues finishing strong in what’s already been a terrific rookie campaign.
