Lauri Markkanen logged only 25 minutes on Thursday night but still managed 27 points, 10 rebounds and five 3-pointers.
Markkanen hit 10-of-18 from the field and was the only truly productive Bull on the night. It was tough to remain patient when Markkanen was shelved at the beginning of the year but he's been well worth the wait, returning top-65 value in his 22 games. He's one of the safer Bulls to use the rest of the way and the only real risk (besides injuries) is that he loses minutes in blowouts. As tonight showed, even that may not slow him down every time.
