DEEBO & FLIGHT 8 = ALL-NBA: The pairing of DeMAR DeROZAN and ZACH LaVINE has seamlessly formed into one of the most dynamic offensive duos in the
league, with each making strong cases for All-NBA recognition. DeRozan, who was named a starter for the third time for the NBA All-Star Game in February (his 5th
ASG overall), was a 2018 All-NBA Second Team player and a 2017 All-NBA Third Team member. LaVine, who was named to his second consecutive All-Star team
this season, has continued to develop his overall game, proving night in and night out to be one of the league’s most efficient and versatile scorers, as well as a pretty
formidable defender. Below are some of the hightlights each player has delivered in bringing the Chicago Bulls back to prominence this season.
WHAT ROOKIE WALL? One of the other keys to success for the Bulls in 2021-22 has been the development of rookie guard AYO DOSUNMU, whose recent play
has put him in contention for the NBA All-Rookie Team. In 31 games as a starter, Dosunmu has averaged 36.1 mpg, 11.1 points, 3.7 rebounds, 5.8 assists with only
1.9 turnovers while shooting .530 from the field, .375 from three and .788 from the free throw line.
o Has shot .500 or better from the field and .400 or better from deep in the same game an 23 times, 2nd best among all rookies.
o Ranks 2nd among all rookies with seven 40+ minute games.
o Currently has .590 effective field goal percentage (eFG%), which is the highest in the league among all rookies (min: 50 games).
o As his role expanded, his performance on the court improved, too. Dosunmu’s minutes, points, and assists per game have all increased throughout every
month of the season:
October/November 0 15.7 5.8 0.8
December 2 25.6 7.5 2.1
January 9 32.2 10.0 4.1
February 12 36.6 10.8 6.5
March 8 33.2 10.6 4.3
DIALING LONG DISTANCE: Both ZACH LaVINE and COBY WHITE are quickly rising to the top of the Bulls’ All-Time 3-point list. In the fourth game of the season
(and his 209th as a Bull), LaVine knocked down three treys at Toronto (10/25/21) to pass franchise icon MICHAEL JORDAN (555) for the No. 4 spot in franchise
history. He later moved ahead of another Bulls’ Hall of Famer, SCOTTIE PIPPEN (664), for No. 3 after hitting three more long shots vs. Portland (1/30/22).
As for White, he jumped ahead of LUOL DENG for 10th after going 6-for-11 from downtown vs. Sacramento (2/16). The third-year guard, who missed the first 14
games of the season recovering from offseason shoulder surgery, started the year with 296 3-balls, good for 18th on the all-time list.
HOT SAUCIN’: Although the Bulls haven’t taken a lot of 3s this season, when they do their aim has been true, as they’ve consistently ranked near
the top of the NBA in three-point shooting
percentage. The table on the right lists the Bulls’
leading long-distance shooters this season. It
shows the number of games each has played, the
number of 3s they’ve made and the number of
games in which they’ve hit multiple 3s.
o Was named Eastern Conference Player of the Month for February, and the Eastern Conference Player of the Week three times this season.
o Has scored in double figures in every appearance (66) and ranks 2nd in the NBA with 56 20+ point games this season.
o One of only seven in the league to average 25.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 5.0 assists per game.
o He’s the only player to average over 25.0 ppg while making less than 1.0 3-pointer per game.
o His 535 4th quarter points leads the NBA, while his 129 clutch points ranks 2nd. He’s also shooting .514 from the field, .667 from 3 and .879 from the free
throw line in the clutch … his two made 3-pointers in clutch time were buzzer-beaters to win games on consecutive days (12/31 at IND and 1/1 at WAS).
o DeRozan is converting an NBA-best 4.7 shots from mid-range on 9.7 attempts per game, both of which are the highest averages in the NBA. No other player in
the league is currently averaging more than 4.0 made field goals or more than 7.2 attempts from that area.
o DeRozan’s rankings: Per StatHead
o PPG: 27.8, 6th overall
o FGM/game: 10.1, 4th overall
o FTM/game: 6.9, 4th overall
o Has posted 48 20+ point games, tying him for 8th in the NBA. He’s also recorded 15 30+ point games.
o Has 8 games with 10+ field goals and 5+ treys while also shooting at least .500 from the floor, tying him for 5th in the NBA.
o His 89 clutch points ranks 10th in the league.
o Scored in double figures in 140 consecutive games prior to exiting early with a knee injury (1/22). That was also the second-longest streak in the league over
that stretch. In 19 appearances upon returning to the floor, he’s continued to post double-figure scoring nights, running his personal streak to 159 out of his last
160 games.
o Holds the highest field goal percentage in the league in catch-and-shoot situations at .473 (min: 50 GP, 30 MIN/G).
