The Bulls lost Saturday to the Wizards, but most Bulls fans are probably still buzzing over Friday's win against the Timberwolves. The game marked the return of Jimmy Butler, Taj Gibson and Tom Thibodeau, but ended up being significant beyond the three former Bulls returning to the United Center. Zach LaVine, one of the pieces that came to Chicago in return for Butler, took a starring role with 35 points and three clutch free throws that gave the Bulls the final lead. "The Bulls won that trade," Will Perdue said in the video above. "There's no ifs, ands or buts about it. You're talking about a guy that in that game against Minnesota he showed how he can attack the rim and explode over defenders. He showed he can knock down the three. He can also hit free throws in a clutch situation. Not one, not two, but three."
Is Zach LaVine now the face of the Bulls?
