The Bulls bounced back after getting led by Joel Embiid in a tight loss at Eastern Conference-leading Philadelphia on Friday. Surviving the fourth-quarter push, they made the Kings lose for the sixth time in a row. LaVine hit 15 of 20 shots in his forth game with 30 or more points while having three steals.
Coach Billy Donovan said that Zach LaVine deserved being an All-star because he has played well and there hadn’t been many guys who had played as better than him. LaVine said that he felt like he played at an All-Star level during the past couple of years and thought that not many people had better seasons than him in the Eastern Conference over the past couple of years. This he equates to winning.
