Nikola Mirotic went for 22 points, eight rebounds, two assists, one steal, one turnover and three 3-pointers in the Bulls’ big win over the Bucks on Friday night.
Mirotic was all over our lists at the beginning of the season. Then he had his face broken by Bobby Portis’ fist which, to say the least, muddied some expectations. But wow, since Mirotic has returned, he’s been everything we could have hoped for. In his last four games, Mirotic is averaging 23 points per game and has hit at least three 3-pointers in each game. Tonight was his first game without below 50 percent shooting in those four. Make a waiver claim now. Seriously, go.
