Rookie Lauri Markkanen dropped a very efficient 32 points (five triples), adding seven boards in Friday’s 119-107 win over the visiting Pacers.
Markkanen struggled last week, returning just top-150 value, while he’s been a top-80 play for the season. He’ll be getting fewer touches when Zach LaVine (knee) gets back in a few weeks, but should hold lower mid-round value for the rest of the season. Games like this show you why Bulls fans are excited about the newly christened Lauri Bird.
