Mirotic scored 28 points (11-14 FG, 6-9 3Pt) while adding eight rebounds and an assist in 35 minutes during Sunday's 109-94 win over the Bucks. He's been on fire from three-point range recently, going 14-for-21 (.667) over the last three games and twice scoring 28 points to set and then match a new season high. Given the Bulls' lack of scoring options beyond Jimmy Butler, expect Mirotic to continue seeing plenty of touches for the remainder of the regular season.
Mirotic tallied 28 points (12-15 FG, 4-6 3Pt), five rebounds, three steals, two assists and one block across 39 minutes in Wednesday's 117-95 victory over the Pistons. Mirotic stuffed the stat sheet Wednesday night as he recorded a statistic in each of the five major categories. It was his most efficient outing on the year as he shot 80 percent from the floor, and with the current lack of depth on the Bulls roster, a few more strong showings could allow Mirotic to get extended run and increase on his average of 23 minutes per game.
Mirotic will start at power forward for Saturday's tilt against the Jazz, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports. Mirotic has played well over the past three contests, averaging 17.7 points, 7.7 rebounds, and 1.7 blocks across 29.7 minutes per game. His insertion into the starting five will likely send Bobby Portis back to the bench.
Mirotic scored 14 points (3-10 FG, 3-8 3 Pt, 5-5 FT) to go along with five rebounds, two assists and two blocked shots over 28 minutes in Wednesday's 98-91 loss to the Grizzlies. All of Mirotic's field-goal attempts were from long range, a trait he's enjoyed all year as he's third in the league in 3-point field goals attempted among power forwards with an average of 5 per game, and he has a respectable 30.7 percent average from beyond the arc. He's been utilized primarily as a sixth man all year, with only 2 starts to his credit so far this season. With the addition of Rajon Rando into the lineup, things are in flux for a team that is trying to get out of the funk they are in, but Mirotic should stay fairly consistent during this period. The Bulls face the Wizards on Friday, and although Washington is currently one of the NBA's hottest teams, Mirotic has played well in two contests against the Wizards, averaging 14 points, 8.5 rebounds per game and made 60 percent of his shots from 3-point range.
Mirotic managed 24 points (8-16 FG, 5-12 3Pt, 3-3 FT) and 11 rebounds in 29 minutes during Monday's 115-109 win over the Hornets. Mirotic was a healthy scratch for each of the last three contests, but he made the most of his opportunity to return to the lineup. Mirotic finished with efficient lines of 20 points and eight rebounds and 14 points and 10 rebounds in 33 minutes per night while shooting 55.5 percent from the field during the first two games back from the All-Star break. However, after those solid showings, Mirotic has averaged just 22 minutes in his last five appearances.
