Nikola Jokic struggled from the 3-point line, but still averaged 29.3 points, 9.3 rebounds and 7.5 assists for the week, while Michael Porter Jr. added 23.8 points per game on 47 percent 3-point shooting. Jimmy Butler averaged 25.5 points, 8.5 assists and eight rebounds in two games this week, while Tyler Herro returned from a six-game absence to average 19.5 points on 8-for-11 3-point shooting in the final two games of the week. 1 30-38 21 Bulls The Bulls went 3-1 this week to keep their faint play-in hopes alive, and received a much-needed boost with the return of Zach LaVine, who averaged 22.7 points on 41 percent 3-point shooting in the Bulls’ final three games of the week – all Chicago wins.
