It seems surprising because of the recent improved offensive play, but the numbers don’t lie. Even after the Bulls’ recent 10-3 stretch in which they averaged the fourth-most points in the NBA entering Monday night’s game with the Trail Blazers at United Center, they ranked 27th in points per game, 29th in shooting percentage, 26th in free-throw percentage, 24th in 3-point percentage and 29th in offensive rating. A 3-20 start can be offensive to offensive statistics. The return of Nikola Mirotic and the ascension of Kris Dunn have played big parts in the recent improved offensive numbers. The imminent addition of Zach LaVine, who practiced for a third straight day without incident on Monday, should help as well. “We’ll see. There’s a lot of unknown right now with Zach,” coach Fred Hoiberg said. “I think the one thing we do know for sure is he’s a very talented offensive player. He’s a guy who can create his own shot. He can play in transition. You can run different actions for him because of his athleticism and his ability to shoot deep from anywhere on the floor. I’m confident if we continue to stress getting out and playing fast, Zach will fit with that. “It will affect our rotation some. Still don’t know exactly what that’s going to look like but we’re all excited to get Zach back.”
