Zach LaVine became the only player in Chicago Bulls history to record 50 games with five or more 3-pointers in each of the games on Saturday, according to Bulls PR. 

The star guard put on a clinic against the Portland Trailblazers, scoring 36 points and shooting 5-of-8 from beyond the arc. 

LaVine has become a 3-point marksman, holding a career 38.5 percent shooting mark from 3-point land. 

He shot 34.1 percent from beyond the arc in his first year in the league. Since the 2020-21 season, he's shot 41.9 percent, 38.9 percent and 37.6 percent this season. And those percentages are off 8.2, 7.1 and 7.5 attempts per game, respectively.
