Zach LaVine says he is starting to feel like himself again after back-to-back great performances. On Friday, LaVine had 36 points in a win over the Philadelphia 76ers. The following night, LaVine dropped 41 points in a 126-118 win over the Utah Jazz.
In the offseason, LaVine had a knee surgery. "First couple of back to backs, I played and didn't feel great. [Now] I feel great. Legs feel healthy. Felt springy at the beginning of the game. So, yeah it's good to feel like me again," LaVine said, per ESPN.
LaVine heating up
The Bulls haven't been really impressive from beyond the arc this season. However, LaVine has gone 17-of-25 from beyond the arc in the last two games. Now, Bulls head coach Billy Donovan seems to encouraging LaVine to keep firing from beyond the arc.
"For us to generate more 3s, he can be a big part of that. And then he's got to find a balance between shooting those threes and obviously getting downhill and either getting to the basket or passing and creating offense for others," Donovan said of LaVine.
The Bulls didn't enjoy a really great start to the season but they have won their last three games. Following their three consecutive wins, the Bulls improved to 19-21. LaVine himself is very happy to see the Bulls gaining some momentum after a really rough start to the season.
"It always helps when your best players are playing well and you're focused on the other end. We're playing well. We're making big plays. I'm not saying we're playing perfect, but we're competing. We're coming to each game with a certain type of energy and confidence and we need to keep taking it game by game.
We're not trying to look ahead and get ahead of ourselves," Lavine explained. In their next game, the Bulls are playing the Boston Celtics on the road.
