Another night, another achievement for Lauri Markkanen.
The Bulls rookie had perhaps his best performance as a pro on Wednesday against the Heat, scoring a career-high 25 points and grabbing eight rebounds. He shot 50 percent from the floor, added two more 3-pointers and even contributed with a pair of steals.
With his performance Markkanen became the sixth Bulls rookie in franchise history to score 10 or more points in each of his first six games.
Check out the video above for the others, and hear from Fred Hoiberg on why he believes Markkanen can be a superstar in the NBA.
On this edition of the Bulls Talk podcast, Mark Schanowski, Kendall Gill, Will Perdue, and Vincent Goodwill react to the Bulls loss in Miami and another big game from Lauri Markkanen. Vincent justifies why he’d take Jimmy Butler over Scottie Pippen and Kendall explains why Vincent is out of his mind (editor note: Vincent is indeed out of his mind for thinking this). The group also debates if the Bulls would do the Butler trade over again today especially with the early success of Markkanen.
Apparently Kelly Olynyk did not get the memo.
That's all we can gather after Bulls point guard Kris Dunn put the Heat power forward on absolute poster during Wednesday's contest in Miami.
Dunn, making his second appearance of the year, showed little rust going to the rim and attacking Olynyk.
And we couldn't help remembering another certain Bulls point guard putting another Heat forward on a poster.
Check out the comparison in the video above.
