Zach LaVine had 25 points, nine assists, six rebounds, three 3-pointers, one steal and one block during a 123-110 win in Charlotte on Friday. Bulls coach Billy Donovan recently emphasized the need to spread out the offensive burden. "If the weight of [scoring] is just on [LaVine] every single time down the floor, I think it takes players out of rhythm," Donovan said. "It's hard to play and make shots when the ball does find you." The Bulls had five players score double-figure points tonight, and LaVine was efficient with a lighter-than-usual workload, making 8-of-12 FGs and 6-of-6 FTs with two turnovers. He's had no fewer than six assists in six straight games, one of the ways he's maintaining early-round value for GMs savvy enough to have drafted him.
