Lauri Markkanen: we didn’t have that great of spacing and it led to turnovers. We still have to work on some stuff. When they did miss they had some timely offensive rebounds – 12:03 AM

Mike McGraw @McGrawDHSports
Lauri Markkanen seems determined to put up 50 against #Bulls tonight. One thing that could foil his plan is a blowout keeping him on bench in 4thQ.
He has 23 pts on 9 of 10 shooting and Utah leads 48-38 mid-2ndQ. Not a stellar defensive night so far for Bulls – 9:47 PM
Ryan Miller @millerjryan
My goodness Lauri Markkanen is absolutely torching the Bulls. He’s got 23 points on 9/10 shooting with 6:28 left in the first half.
Jazz up 48-38. – 9:46 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Collin. Bro. Lauri Markkanen has flames shooting out of his ass. And he was wide open. Don’t dribble into a contested fade – 9:44 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Lauri Markkanen has 19 on 7-8 shooting from the field – 9:41 PM
Darnell Mayberry @DarnellMayberry
Lauri Markkanen is lighting up the Bulls. Mostly on simple catch-and-shoot 3s. He’s got 19 points on 7 of 8 shooting, 5 of 6 from 3 early in the second quarter. – 9:40 PM
Rob Schaefer @rob_schaef
Lauri Markkanen has 19 points and is 5-6 from 3-point range two minutes into the second quarter – 9:38 PM
Rob Schaefer @rob_schaef

Goran Dragic (2 ast) and Andre Drummond (6 pts) keyed late Bulls run after falling behind by seven early – 9:34 PM

More on this storyline

“You always hope to play for one team for your whole career. But it just didn’t work out,” said Markkanen, who grew disenchanted with his role and lack of a contract extension in December 2020. “I think I’ve definitely got better from those years, just mentality-wise and physically being in a better place. . . . I’m smarter and better now.” -via Yahoo! Sports / November 28, 2022
So while his four seasons with the Chicago Bulls definitely produced some highs, they also featured trying times. And all those experiences, both high and low, helped form who he is today. “I have very good memories from Chicago playing-wise and off the court—my kids being born there, growing as a family in the city of Chicago and playing with one of the most historic franchises. Obviously, there were definitely hard times as well, missing the playoffs four years straight,” Markkanen said in a phone conversation with NBC Sports Chicago that will also appear on the Bulls Talk podcast. “But I think now it’s just easy to say I needed that kind of experience to fight through that kind of stuff and get here where I am today.” -via Yahoo! Sports / November 28, 2022
