Four of their nine wins were decided by five points or less, highlighted by successive winning buzzers DeMara DeRozan against the Indiana Pacers and Washington Wizards.

“We can’t be happy with anything,” DeRozan said through the Chicago Tribune. “We work extremely hard, we can’t take anything for granted. We understand our task – and that is to constantly improve.

“Yes, we won a few matches.” We’re on a winning streak, but we’re not happy with any of that. “

While trying to continue their hot series of forms, let’s dive into some of the numbers behind their nine games.

11: Years since they last won 9 in a row

Their current series of nine wins is the longest for the Bulls since the 2010-11 season.

In the top five responsible for this series were the acting MVPs Derrick Rose, Rip Hamilton, Luol Deng, Carlos Boozer and Joakim Noah.

The current Bulls still have a long way to go to break the 18-franchise record set by the legendary Bulls 72-10 of 1995-96, who won the NBA Championship.

1: Offensive shooting on all wars

In the last nine games, the Bulls have the best offensive rating in the league at 119.7, second behind the San Antonio Spurs (4-4).

Despite the fact that players come and leave the team due to health and safety protocols, especially Lonzo Ball and Alex Caruso, the Bulls did not miss a minute in the offensive.

Only DeMar DeRozan, Nikola Vucevic and Coby White appeared in all nine matches during the series.

90.4: Bulls leading first

The Bulls rely on their core group for most of their points, with only the Toronto Raptors bench producing less than the Bulls’ reserves this season.

During 36 games, Bulls beginners averaged 84.3 points per night (1st place in the NBA), but during this series they started things one step higher and gave 90.4 points per game, which is second place behind the Raptors.

Zach LaVine is the leading man with 27.6, while DeRozan gives 27 and Vucevic 17.6.

1: Zach LaVine in uncharted waters

Bulls quarterback Zach LaVine has never won four games in a row since entering the season in his seven-year NBA career.

How things have changed for the 2020 Olympic gold medalist, who is currently enjoying his best basketball performance and is now well on his way to appearing in the playoffs for the first time this season.

During the series, LaVine played six of those matches with an average of 27.6 points, scoring a ball with a ridiculous efficiency of 52.7 percent from the field, 50.0 percent from the three-point line and 93.8 percent from the free throw line.
