Close out hard on Lauri Markkanen
Almost every NBA team has a designated shooter/3-point specialist on their roster. But despite this player often being easy to identify, opposing defenses often lose track of that player specifically.
This happened a few times for the Bulls in losses to the Celtics and Grizzlies and is something they will need to avoid if they don't want to suffer a fifth straight loss.
Lauri Markkanen is Cleveland's primary shooter stationed around Cleveland's Garland-Allen or Garland-Mobley pick-and-rolls.
Markkanen is shooting a career-worst 32% from 3-point range, but that figure is at a respectable 37% over the last 10 games.
This shows just how valuable Markkanen is to Cleveland's winning ways, as the team still won games despite Lauri not shooting lights out from 3-point range overall on the season. Chicago will need to focus their primary defensive attention on Garland and the Cavs bigs around the basket, but they cannot be scared to run the perimeter-oriented Markkanen off the 3-point line.
