Zach LaVine shines bright on national TV in win over Sixers

Zach LaVine and the Bulls send a message with win on ESPN - Locked On Bulls

Locked On Bulls is back with a fresh episode, the guys spend the entire show recapping last night’s win over Jimmy Butler and the Sixers. According to Otto Porter Jr., this was the Bulls way of sending a message to the rest of the league that they are getting ready for the future.

The guys dive right into what is arguably the best game of the year for Zach LaVine and the Chicago Bulls in combination with it being their third and final game on national television. The guys discuss the role LaVine played in last night’s win, his epic play in the final seconds to seal the victory for the Bulls, and also what could be considered one of the NBA’s best plays of the entire year. The guys talk about how this could very well be a statement game from the young Bulls and how a win like this could be something we look back on a year or two from now as a real turning point.

The guys talk about Jimmy Butler’s second game returning back to Chicago since being traded in June 2017 and his performance without Joel Embiid. The guys discuss the Bulls dominance in the paint even though they struggled for the second game in a row from three. The focus of the episode was around LaVine’s game and his ability to step up from the jump (i.e. Markkanen’s foul trouble early, late-game decision making, and closing out big wins).

Locked On Bulls talks about Jim Boylen’s comments pregame about the Bulls lack of nationally televised games and how the Bulls used that as extra motivation. The guys talk about the impact Otto Porter Jr. and Robin Lopez continues to have on the entire team. Also, who put the Rajon Rondo bobblehead in Jimmy Butler’s locker before the game? All of that and so much more on Locked On Bulls.

The guys spend the second half of the show taking mailbag questions, texts, tweets, and voicemails in their weekly episode of Locked On Bulls mailbag.

Some of the topics include whether the Bulls will look to draft a big man in the second round, some prospects available, would they take the risk on Bol Bol if he slides to the end of the first-early second round, and a scenario of trading up with the Atlanta Hawks for the No. 2 pick.

The guys talk about last night’s game with the idea that LaVine, Porter, and Dunn were out and the Bulls only dressed nine players. Lauri Markkanen only played 16 minutes in the game and left with ‘illness’ in the third quarter. Should the Bulls think about shutting him down for the rest of the season?

The guys also mention how the Raptors seem to be walking through this game as told by the final score, they mention the final 90 seconds and give props to Shaq Harrison and Wayne Selden Jr.
