Young finished with 18 points and five assists. He had 16 assists, eight rebounds and nine turnovers. LaVine made 17 of 35 shots with six 3s. LaVine played 56 minutes and Markkanen battled through flu-like symptoms on Friday night, and even without a practice on Saturday it was clear both guys were still feeling the after effects of the quadruple-overtime game.
"That was a fun game to play, probably one of the most fun games I've played in my career", Young said.
Young and DeAndre Bembry had turnovers in the final 30 seconds of the third overtime, preventing the Hawks from an opportunity to snap a 155-all tie.
Ryan Arcidiacono continues to make winning plays.
Bulls: LaVine narrowly missed a triple-double, finishing with nine rebounds and nine assists. It was Porter Jr. who nearly single handily helped the Bulls send the game into overtime by scoring their last 8 points in the fourth that tied the game 124-124 with.4 seconds left.
Otto Porter Jr. had 31 points and 10 rebounds for Chicago. He regrouped quickly with 11 third-quarter points.
Hawks: Young is the first Atlanta player to be named rookie of the month three times since Al Horford in 2007-08.
The third-highest scoring game in history it helped the Bulls win their fifth of their last six games and in a game where so many players helped contribute to it, you can't choose just one player of the game. Doncic burst out of the gates with brilliant basketball, making an immediate case for rookie of the year honors - and Dallas nearly certainly has no regrets at all about making the trade - but Young has also established himself as one of the league's most exciting new talents. Len had 24 points and 10 rebounds. This year's draft lottery will likely be remembered as one of the most important in recent memory, as the prize with the number one pick is a chance to land generational prospect Zion Williamson - who literally every team in the National Basketball Association would love to have on its roster right now, let alone for 7-8 years on a relatively affordable rookie deal. Dewayne Dedmon had 14 points and 12 rebounds. The Hawks made their own statement about youth by starting three rookies. Hawks rookie Trae Young scored 49 points, the most by a rookie this season. Omari Spellman moved into the lineup as the third rookie, joining Young and Kevin Huerter.
The funniest part: these two teams play each other again in two days on Sunday. The injury is not believed to be serious.
There was a delay with 8:49 remaining when Huerter had a hard fall under the Bulls' basket and didn't immediately return to his feet.
