Bulls' Lauri Markkanen: Falls in finals of Skills Challenge
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Markkanen was downed by Spencer Dinwiddie in the finals of Saturday's Taco Bell Skills Challenge.

Big men had won the competition each of the last two years, but Markkanen wasn't able to make it three straight after getting past Andre Drummond and Joel Embiid in the first two rounds. Markkanen headed into the All-Star break averaging 15.3 points, 7.7 rebounds and 2.2 three-pointers per game, reaching 100 made three-pointers in his 41st game -- the fastest pace in NBA history to begin a career.

Bulls' Lauri Markkanen: Solid line off bench in Rising Stars Challenge
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Markkanen managed 15 points (7-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt), six rebounds and one assist across 22 minutes during Team World's 155-124 win over Team USA in the Rising Stars Challenge.

The rookie's efficient line was a microcosm of his impressive first-year campaign, one that's seen him average 15.3 points, 7.7 rebounds and 1.3 assists across 30.3 minutes in 51 games. Markkanen headed into the All-Star break with double-digit scoring efforts in 21 consecutive contests, and he's impressively been just as consistent on the boards. With the recent move of Nikola Mirotic to the Pelicans, the 20-year-old also has one less impediment to playing time, which should keep his fantasy value robust for the balance of the regular season.
