Lauri Markkanen scored 21 on 6-of-14, going 4-of-10 from behind the arc and 5-of-6 on free throws. He pulled six rebounds, dished one assist, and stole a ball over a team-high 31 minutes.
Markkanen's 21 points are good for his second-best outing over his last 13 games. He looked to be turning his season around after a slow start, but has been stalling again lately. He's averaging 14.3 points, six rebounds, and 1.2 assists for the month of January. He's still second on the Bulls in scoring, but sitting 10.1 points per game behind Zach LaVine. Markkanen and the Bulls will rest tomorrow before facing the Kings on Friday night.
