The Look Back:
The Bulls suffered two losses this week in the lead up to the NBA All-Star Break. Philadelphia beat them last Sunday, 118 – 111, and Washington got the better of them on Tuesday, 126 – 114. Zach LaVine continued to show the League that he deserved to be an All-Star, posting 32 points against the ‘76ers and 41 points against the Wizards.
MVP for Week 17: Zach LaVine (8)
What can I say about Zach that hasn’t already been said? The guy is a monster. He’s got no help right now, and he is doing everything in his power to carry this weak Bulls team on his back. He had two mammoth games this week and was the lone All-Star representative for the Bulls this weekend, taking home 4th place in the 3 Point Contest. Also this week, LaVine teased us all when a number of his practice dunks went viral on Bulls Twitter. The guy is an athletic freak!

The Look Ahead:
The Bulls have two games this week. They take on the Charlotte Hornets (18-36) at home on Thursday night, and Saturday they host the Phoenix Suns (22-33). These are two winnable games for what should be a rested and hungry roster. Hopefully, by the time the All-Star break is finished, some of the injured Bulls like Daniel Gafford and Wendell Carter Jr will be ready to go. That should help the defense out tremendously.
Attn: Whatever Bulls Management still wants respect.
Daniel Gafford is leading the league in blocked shots per 36 mins. AS A ROOKIE!!!! Please do not play Cristiano Felicio before him these last 27 games.
