Zach LaVine Joins Stephen Curry In History Books As Bulls Torch 76ers

Zach LaVine torched the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday night with 11 three-pointers en route to 41 points to lead the Chicago Bulls to a 126-112 victory. The Bulls guard joined Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry in the history books as the only players to make at least 11 three-pointers on 80 percent shooting from beyond the arc in a game.

LaVine went 11-of-13 from three and finished 14-of-19 overall from the field to lead Chicago to its first victory over Philadelphia since March 2019. He also added six assists and two steals to cap off his huge night.

The Sixers drained 20 three-pointers on a scorching 58.8 percent shooting on the evening.

Nikola Vucevic also put together an all-around outing, notching his fifth career triple-double with 19 points, 18 rebounds, and 10 assists. 

The high-flying two-guard is currently second on the Bulls' all-time three-pointers made with 836 triples as a Bull to his name, just behind Kirk Hinrich, who finished his career with 1,049 threes with Chicago. 

LaVine's 11 threes Friday night is also the second-highest single-game total in franchise history, coming behind his own record of 13 three-pointers, which he set in a win over the Charlotte Hornets back in November 2019.
