Zach LaVine hit the game-winner in Monday’s 105-101 win over the Magic, with his steal and dunk putting the Bulls ahead for good after they blew an 18-point lead.
LaVine finished with 18 points, seven rebounds, five assists, a steal and two triples while going 7-of-16 from the floor in 33 minutes. He was rested on the back half of a B2B on the weekend but has looked ready for more in his time on the court. He’s already a top-90 player on a per game basis and should only improve as he puts all that rust in the distance. The wink-wink-not-tanking Bulls might choose to rest him a little bit down the stretch but for now the only rest plan seems to involve B2B situations. LaVine should be a great middle-round option for the rest of the season.
