Lauri Markkanen destroys Enes Kanter with poster slam


Dunn, who had missed his previous six shots, sank a runner over Kyle O'Quinn with 58.8 seconds remaining in the Bulls' wild 122-119 double overtime victory over the Knicks Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden.

"It was a hard-fought win", Markkanen said. "I liked the shot and it wasn't falling, and the fact that the sky floater goes in is just like, all right, if that's going to go in, then we're going to have to accept it".

He is connecting on more three-pointers per game than any rookie in the history of the league.

Despite only starting three games this season after missing more than 20 games with a broken jaw suffered during a fight with teammate Bobby Portis, Mirotic leads the Bulls in scoring at 17.4 points per game and ranks second on the team with 7.0 rebounds.

Not only will the Bulls be without LaVine, who was acquired during the offseason in the trade that landed Minnesota former Chicago star Jimmy Butler, but they might be without the services of fourth-year power forward Nikola Mirotic, whom head coach Fred Hoiberg said was battling a stomach virus. "I'm just happy to be able to go back". I know I've got to give more. Kristaps Porzingis finished with 24 points, including a dunk at the buzzer to force the second overtime.

"'We had opportunities. We didn't get stops at crucial times", Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek said.

The Knicks' Kristaps Porzingis grabs a rebound as the Bulls' Lauri Markkanen looks on January 10, 2018, at Madison Square Garden. Markkanen got the best of the ascending superstar this time, finishing with a game-high 33 points and 10 rebounds. He also grabbed 10 rebounds and made all five free throws.

Goran Dragic scored 20 points and Wayne Ellington made the decisive 3-pointer with 23.2 seconds left, helping Miami fend off Indiana's late push 114-106.

Holiday scored 31.8 FanDuel points on Wednesday, compared to his average of 26.7 FanDuel points per game this season.

Loya died of a cardiac arrest in Nagpur on 1 December, 2014 where he had gone to attend the wedding of a colleague's daughter. At the time of his death, Loya was presiding over the CBI court hearing the alleged Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case.

The 7-foot center made 10 of 22 shots, including eight 3-pointers (on 15 attempts) to match the Chicago rookie record set by Chris Duhon in 2004-05. At age 29, he is the second-youngest player behind LeBron James to reach the 20,000 mark.

Victor Oladipo scored 26 points and Lance Stephenson provided a late boost of energy that almost allowed the Pacers to erase a 10-point deficit in the final 9:57.

Grizzlies 105, Pelicans 102: Tyreke Evans scored 28 points, including a pair of free throws with 5.9 seconds left that helped Memphis beat New Orleans.

Jazz 107, Wizards 104: Ricky Rubio scored 21 points to lead Utah, which played without two starters, and second-leading scorer Rodney Hood was ejected in the second half.

John Wall had 35 points and 11 assists for the Wizards, but committed eight of their 23 turnovers.

This is the 16th time in 19 games the Bulls have scored 100 points or more.

Russell Westbrook had 38 points and 10 rebounds for the Thunder. After a hot start though, wins have been few and far between. Atlanta posted its fourth road victory this season.

The Bulls rank 16th in points off turnovers allowed per game (16.5) while the Knicks rank 25th (18.4). Dwight Howard had 15 points and 12 rebounds for Charlotte, but was 5-for-18 from the foul line.
