Lauri Markkanen News

On this edition of the Bulls Talk podcast, Leila Rahimi is joined by Kevin Anderson and Tony Gill to discuss the Bulls after 10 games, their offensive system, and the futures of Lauri Markkanen and Wendell Carter Jr.

The Bulls are playing a more modern-style offense this season, shooting more 3-pointers and leading the league in attempts from 5 feet or closer. Now, they need Zach LaVine and Lauri Markkanen to form more consistent chemistry.

The Bulls' third-year forward retreated to the locker room briefly in the fourth quarter to have his left side examined but returned to the bench---where he stayed for the second straight game as coach Jim Boylen rode veteran Thad Young down the stretch.

Lauri Markkanen has struggled in the first four games of the season from 3-point range, but shot selection hasn't been the problem.
