It’s been a horror shooting start to the year for Zach LaVine, who has again looked frustrated by success, or lack thereof, of the Chicago Bulls. LaVine sees himself as the primary player on this roster, although of late it has been DeRozan who has seen the majority of the ‘clutch’ moments for the team. DeRozan is out today, and compared to last game, LaVine’s point total has only rising by 1 point. He didn’t cover in that match, though he did score 12 points in the last 6 minutes and looked more comfortable than we have seen him at any point this season. The trade rumours are a slight question mark, however this total looks a touch low for the primary player in this spot given his general shot volume and ability to get to the free throw line.
