Bulls' Zach LaVine posterizes Kings' JaKarr Sampson with a highlight slam dunk

  • Bulls week in review A shift to player development and keeping tabs on draft prospects

Robin Lopez got ejected in Monday night's road game against the Kings after feeling he was treated unfairly when he didn't get a call on one end, and then got whistled for a foul on the defensive end. The Bulls would only get as close as three points the rest of the way as Sacramento snapped a two-game losing streak of their own.

Averaging 15.3 points and 7.7 rebounds per game, Markkanen, a 7-footer with a sweet 3-point shooting touch, has given the Bulls hope in an otherwise rebuilding season.

Chicago was already playing without Lauri Markkanen, who missed his third straight game due to the birth of his child, and Kris Dunn.

Guard Zach LaVine showed off his hops and hammer with a huge dunk on forward JaKarr Sampson in the Chicago Bulls' loss to the Sacramento Kings.


"Best start we had in a long time", Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg said. An arguably deserved shot considering Lopez's attempt at property damage in the Kings' new home venue. "I told him, that's bad", Lopez told reporters after the game. "I'm not sure the reason behind the technical, but I suppose the officials are absolute and who am I to discredit that?"

After Lopez reluctantly left the Golden 1 Center floor, he grabbed a chair in the tunnel leading toward the Bulls locker room and tossed it. I was a little bit surprised.

LaVine and the Bulls will play next when they return to Chicago to host the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday night.
