LaVine produced 36 points (12-19 FG, 4-8 3Pt, and 8-8 FT), eight assists, two rebounds and two steals in 35 minutes during Wednesday's 128-124 victory over the Pelicans.
LaVine heads into his first All-Star Game as one of the hottest players in the league. Over the last 13 games, he's averaged 32.3 points, 5.2 rebounds and 4.7 assists while shooting 55.3 percent from the field and an even 50 percent from downtown. The 25-year-old is on pace to set career highs across practically every category.
LaVine scored 23 points (9-20 FG, 1-8 3Pt, 4-6 FT) to go along with nine rebounds, five assists, one steal and one block across 32 minutes in Monday's loss to the Nuggets.
LaVine uncharacteristically struggled with his shot from both beyond the arc and the free-throw line. However, he still managed to contribute positively, hauling in at least nine boards for the fourth time this season. In addition, LaVine chipped in defensive stats for the first time in his last three contests.
LaVine and the Bulls won't play the Raptors on Sunday since the game was postponed due to positive COVID-19 test results and ongoing contact tracing for Toronto, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
The Raptors don't have the minimum eight players available due to the NBA's health and safety protocols, leading to the postponement. The Bulls don't currently have any COVID-19 issues within the team, so they should face the Nuggets on Monday as scheduled.
LaVine threw together 24 points (9-16 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 2-4 FT), one rebound and four assists in 33 minutes during the 106-97 loss to Phoenix on Friday.
LaVine is no doubt the main producer for Chicago and it shows game in and game out. The guard is on a tear and has only produced less than 20 points a handful of times this season. He is also currently on pace to set new career high averages in points, rebounds and assists. LaVine is the perfect provider that covers multiple areas of the floor and is the only hope to return Chicago back to their glory days. If you are looking for someone that is versatile and can help in more ways than just one, this is your man.
LaVine recorded 35 points (14-21 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds and two assists across 41 minutes during Wednesday's 133-126 overtime win over the Timberwolves.
LaVine has been scoring at an incredible clip, as he's now reached the 30-point threshold for the eighth time in his last 10 appearances. He's been one of the league's elite scorers all season long, thanks to improved efficiency from the field -- LaVine's 52.3 field-goal percentage, 44.0 percent clip from downtown and 86.6 free-throw percentage all represent career bests.
LaVine scored 21 points (7-14 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 3-3 FT) to go along with five rebounds and six assists across 32 minutes in Monday's win over the Rockets.
LaVine played his lowest minutes total of his last 10 games as the Bulls blew out the Rockets. That was one of the reasons the he failed to reach 30 points for the first time in his last four games, though he continued to shoot the ball particularly well from three-point range and the free-throw line. LaVine also continued to chip in strong peripheral production, as he's averaging a career-best 5.4 rebounds and 5.1 assists through 30 contests this season.
LaVine produced 38 points (15-20 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 5-5 FT), four rebounds, three assists and three steals across 36 minutes in Saturday's 122-114 win over the Kings.
Few teams would be able to bounce back with a signature win after the beatdown the Sixers gave the Bulls on Friday, but a gutsy performance by LaVine helped to reverse the team's fortunes. Lavine is playing as well as anyone in the league and is deserving of a role as a reserve in the upcoming All-Star Game.
LaVine posted 30 points (9-28 FG, 2-10 3Pt, 10-10 FT), five rebounds, five assists, two steals and a block across 38 minutes in Friday's loss against the 76ers.
LaVine's performance looks good on the surface, as he filled the stat sheet and also reached the 30-point plateau for the sixth time over his last seven games. However, he struggled badly from the field and his 10 trips to the charity stripe saved what would've otherwise been an awful fantasy performance from both a scoring and an accuracy perspective. LaVine remains one of the best scorers in the league, though, and he should remain a must-start player across all formats even if he has down games from time to time. He produces enough volume to deliver value even when his shot isn't falling.
LaVine totaled 37 points (14-22 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 5-7 FT), five rebounds, five assists and three steals in 35 minutes during Wednesday's 105-102 victory over the Pistons.
LaVine put the team on his shoulders during what was an impressive second-half comeback. It was simply another notch in the belt for Lavine who is putting together the best season of his career thus far. He sits as the 18th ranked player in standard leagues and while selling high could be an option, you may simply want to hold on and enjoy the ride.
LaVine and the Bulls will play host to the Pistons on Wednesday night, Marc Stein of the New York Times reports.
As expected, the league will schedule a Pistons-Bulls matchup after both teams had their originally scheduled games postponed. The Bulls were initially supposed to face the Hornets, while Detroit was scheduled to play in Dallas on Wednesday.
LaVine and the Bulls look like they'll be playing Wednesday against the Pistons as the league reworks the schedule for the two teams, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
The league is moving toward scheduling a game Wednesday for Chicago and Detroit after the two teams had games postponed due to COVID-19 related protocols. If this new game is finalized, Chicago would be back to having three games remaining for the week against Detroit, Philadelphia and Sacramento.
LaVine and the Bulls will not play Wednesday against the Hornets after the game was postponed, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
The postponement stems from positive COVID-19 tests within the Spurs, who played against the Hornets on Sunday. As a result, Charlotte's next two games have been postponed. The Bulls will resume play Friday night in Philadelphia.
LaVine scored 30 points (11-25 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 4-6 FT) to go along with nine rebounds and three assists across 38 minutes in Monday's 120-112 overtime win over the Pacers.
LaVine reached at least 30 points for the fourth time in his last five games, though he had the benefit of overtime to get there. While he's still shooting 85.4 percent from the free-throw line on the campaign, he's stumbled from the charity stripe a bit of late by knocking down 17 of his last 25 attempts across his last five contests. LaVine continues to post career-best marks in many statistical categories, though he has failed to tally a steal in any of his last three games and is now averaging 1.0 per contest.
LaVine logged 26 points (11-21 FG, 4-7 3Pt), nine rebounds and six assists in Friday's 125-106 loss to the Clippers.
LaVine was one rebound short of his season high, which he recorded Jan. 23 against the other Los Angeles team. He may be averaging 5.4 rebounds and 5.3 assists (both season highs) but only owns two double-doubles across 25 games. LaVine's primary value is obviously scoring, which he has continued to do with his fifth consecutive performance of 26 points or more.
LaVine went off for 46 points (17-25 FG, 9-14 3Pt, 3-3 FT) to go with seven rebounds, four assists and a block across 38 minutes in Wednesday's 129-116 win over the Pelicans.
LaVine reached the 35-point threshold for the third game in a row, parlaying some red-hot shooting from the field and three-point land into his best scoring total of the season. The 25-year-old remains in the midst of a career-best season, with his averages in points (28.2 per game), rebounds (5.3), assists (5.3), three-pointers (3.5) and blocks (0.5) all matching or surpassing his top marks from his first six seasons in the NBA.
LaVine scored 35 points (12-26 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 8-11 FT) to go along with six assists, two rebounds and one steal across 38 minutes in Monday's 105-101 loss to the Wizards.
LaVine continued to serve as the Bulls' primary playmaker and scorer and has now topped 20 field-goal attempts in each of his last four games. While he's still shooting 85.9 percent from the free-throw line for the season, LaVine has combined to only 10-for-16 from the free-throw line across his last two contests -- a situation worth monitoring in upcoming games. Even so, he continues to post the best numbers of his career in nearly every statistical category, highlighted by 27.4 points and 5.3 assists per game.
LaVine scored 39 points (16-25 FG, 5-6 3Pt, 2-5 FT) to go along with seven rebounds and four assists across 33 minutes in Saturday's 118-92 win over the Magic.
LaVine had his best scoring game since Jan. 10, and he was particularly efficient from three-point range. The only blemish on his line came from uncharacteristic struggles from the free-throw line, though he's still shooting 87.2 percent for the season. While LaVine isn't known for his prowess as a passer or rebounder, he is putting up career-high marks in both categories by averaging 5.3 boards and 5.3 dimes per game through 22 contests.
LaVine totaled 26 points (9-21 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 7-7 FT), eight assists, four rebounds and one steal in 36 minutes during Friday's 123-119 loss to the Magic.
Since a 10-point performance on Jan. 17, LaVine has scored at least 21 points in eight straight games and has shot the ball consistently well, not just during that stretch, but across the entire season. While he did struggle from distance for a second consecutive game, he is still knocking down a career-best 39.5 percent of his three-pointers. He's also 25-for-25 from the charity stripe in his last seven games.
LaVine scored 24 points (10-21 FG, 0-7 3PT, 4-4 FT) to go along with five rebounds and seven assists across 38 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Knicks.
LaVine led the team with 24 points but had a dreadful night from three-point range by missing all seven of his attempts. The struggles appear to be an outlier, as he entered the game shooting a career-best 41.9 percent from beyond the arc. Otherwise, his performance fell in line with his season averages, though he failed to record a steal for only the third time in his last 10 contests.
LaVine scored 21 points (8-16 FG, 3-6 3PT, 2-2 FT) to go along with five rebounds, three assists and one steal across 32 minutes in Monday's win over the Knicks.
LaVine was overshadowed by Lauri Markkanen, but he still managed a well-rounded stat line. He continued to play with strong efficiency, as both his true shooting and effective field percentage have risen over eight percent from the 2019-20 season. That has helped him slightly increase his per-game scoring despite an overall dip in volume.
