The most exciting team in the NBA is the Chicago Bulls. After several years of mediocrity and existing in basketball purgatory, the Chicago Bulls are back. This is thanks to DeMar DeRozan, Zach Lavine, Ayo Dosunmu, and company. Excitement surrounding the team is at an all-time after back-to-back nights ending in a game-winning buzzer beater from shooting guard DeMar DeRozan.
Friday afternoon, Bulls were down one point with under 5 seconds to go. DeRozan gets the ball at the top of the court, dribbles closer to the arc, pulls up and drains a three. This shrink sinks the Indiana Pacers and gave the Bulls a 108-106 victory.
Fast forward a night later, with just 3.3 seconds to go, DeRozan does it again with a 3-point buzzer beater to give the Bulls a 120-119 win over the Washington Wizards and their seventh win in a row.
DeRozan is already a MVP favorite after helping lead the Bulls to first in the Eastern Conference. He is currently sixth in points with 26.8 per game on shooting splits of .495/.373/.876. He also is averaging 5.1 rebounds, 4.6 assists, and 0.9 steals in 35.3 minutes per game over 31 games.
DeMar DeRozan making both shots is not just amazing feats on the fact they were game-winning buzzer beaters but also because he is not a notable three-point shooter. He shoots just 28.5 percent from beyond the arc.
So much for DeMar DeRozan being the worst free-agent signing
