Zach LaVine joins Michael Jordan in rare point-scoring statistic

NBC Universal, Inc.

Zach LaVine is the second Bulls player in history to record 40+ points in 20 games, according to Bulls PR.

He joins Michael Jordan as the only two Bulls players in history to accomplish this feat.

LaVine finished with 51 points against the Pistons. He joins Michael Jordan and Jimmy Butler in a separate scoring category, as the only players in franchise history with multiple 50-point games.

He nearly didn't play Saturday, as back spasms designated him into a game-time decision. After a thorough warm-up, LaVine decided to give it a go. Thank goodness he did. He scored 19 points in the first quarter on his way to a career evening.
