The Nets might have been able to overtake the Bulls if it weren’t for a strong fourth quarter from Chicago.
The Bulls scored 31 in the fourth while the Nets only managed 19.
And Zach LaVine was a huge part of his team’s successful final period.
LaVine scored 15 points in the first 6 minutes of the fourth quarter, on his way to an incredible 29 points for the night.
In total, he would score 20 of his 29 points in the game’s final frame.
LaVine scored the most for his team and continued an already-great season.
LaVine’s Season So Far
LaVine has averaged 19.8 points, 3.9 rebounds, and 3.9 assists a game during his time in the NBA.
But this year he has ratcheted it up to 23.8 points.
It remains to be seen if he can keep it up at this level but LaVine seems more driven than usual and ready to help his team out more than usual.
LaVine felt better than he had in some time, despite nagging injuries that have often gotten in his way.
“I do the best I can every day to feel well,” LaVine said after the game.
But he made sure to add that it’s “a day-by-day thing. It’s between me, the coaching staff, and upstairs.”
Fans of the team are hoping that LaVine keeps healthy and keeps playing – especially if he’s playing as he did on Tuesday.
