The CHGO Bulls crew discuss the recent opposite trends of Bulls stars Zach LaVine and DeMar DeRozan. While the Bulls have been slipping in the standings, LaVine has been on a scoring surge since the All Star break. And his numbers dating back to December are his usual All Star-type stuff. DeRozan, meanwhile, has seen his usage and scoring numbers slip since February. What is the cause of this shift, and what does it mean for the Bulls moving forward? Could it have offseason implications if the Bulls look to trade either of their star players? Plus, Matt, Big Dave and Will have a “stat-padding” debate after Giannis Antetokounmpo manufactured a triple-double for himself in the final seconds of the Bucks win on Sunday.
