Kris Dunn turned in one of the more complete performances of his career in Friday night’s loss to the Pacers. He racked up 17 assists, joining some great names in Bulls history.
Dunn became one of nine players in Bulls’ history to finish a game with at least 17 assists in a game.
The other eight players in Bulls history who have racked up at least 17 assists in a game are:
Guy Rodgers, Clem Haskins, Norm Van Lier, Ennis Whatley, Sam Vincent, Michael Jordan, Kirk Hinrich and most recently (via our Chris Kamka) before Dunn, Derrick Rose.
Out of the nine players in Bulls history to get at least 17 assists in a game, Dunn actually tied Whatley for the highest field goal percentage of the bunch at 66.7 percent on 6-for-9 shooting from the field. This is yet another figure that shows just how well Dunn was controlling the flow of the offense on Friday night.
And in a more specific measure, Dunn also became only the second player in Bulls franchise history to net 17 assists and at least two made 3-pointers in a game. This one was huge for Dunn, as it represented the first time he hit multiple 3-pointers in a game this season.
Dunn has been slowly but surely improving, and as of now he is playing a role this team desperately needs. His defense has always been good–foul issues notwithstanding–but it is well documented that if he can improve his 3-point shooting accuracy, his ceiling becomes very, very different.
So while the 17 assists are awesome to see, the 3-point makes were nice too. This season, Dunn is shooting a sizzling-hot 50 percent on corner 3-point shots, and 35 percent on all 3-point shots. Last season Dunn shot 38 percent on corner 3s and 32 percent from the 3-point line. So if he has improved again as a shooter, somewhere around the 34-to-35 percent mark from 3-point range would be about right, even if it comes on a much lower volume.
Much like Russell Westbrook–the former MVP and 7-time All-NBA team member–, Dunn received much doubt over whether he could develop into a quality NBA point guard because of his lack of a jump shot. But also similar to “The Brodie”, Dunn has flashed the ability to have a huge impact on games even if his shot isn’t falling.
Dunn’s 17 assist game may be remembered down the line as a nice little reward for Bulls fans among a tough season, or it may fall by the wayside like the not widely discussed or remembered Sam Vincent 17-assist game from 1988.
But if the development of the young Bulls’ core goes as well as John Paxson and co. expect, this game may well go down as the exact moment when the Bulls’ “Big 3” finally clicked.
Dirk Nowitzki, Kevin Garnett, Tim Duncan.
These are just a few of the names which spring to mind when you think about the greatest power forwards to ever step foot on the NBA court.
Unfortunately, all three of these players are quite expensive on MyTEAM. However, its not all doom and gloom as there is a whole host of stars you can pick up for less than 50k.

‘77 Bob Love (OVR 95)
Card Type: Legacy
Position: PF / SF
Team: Chicago Bulls
Best stats: 98 offensive consistency, 97 shot IQ, 95 stamina
The best budget power forward on NBA 2K20 is the 95 rated Bulls legend Bob Love, who can be picked up for just over 40k.
‘Butterbean’, as he was affectionatly known in his playing days, played for five teams during his 11 year NBA career, but is best remembered for his time in Chicago.

A master with both hands (95 rated hands in game), he was a three time NBA All-Star during his time in Chicago and whilst he never won a ring during his time with the Bulls, he left such a mark that he was the second player to have his number (10) retired by the franchise.
‘04 Karl Malone (OVR 92)
Card type: Spotlight
Position: PF / C
Team: ‘97-‘98 Utah Jazz
Best stats: 99 durability, 98 offensive consistency, 98 reaction time
The next name in the top five is the two time NBA MVP Karl Malone.
Arguably the greatest player to ever play for the Utah Jazz, Malone spent 18 years in Utah, making the All-Star team fourteen times during that stretch. Over the course of his career he averaged a double double with 25 PPG and 10.1 RPG and like Love, Malone had his number retired by both club and college at the end of his career.
Malone is a beast in the paint, with his inside scoring (89 OVR) made up of 91 post moves, 85 standing dunk and 85 driving dunk. For just 15k there is no doubt he would be a great signing for any side.
‘93 Kevin McHale (OVR 92)
Card type: Spotlight
Position: PF / C
Team: ‘85-‘86 Boston Celtics
Best stats: 98 stamina, 98 shot IQ, 95 offensive consistency
Kevin McHale is another one team man, spending his full playing days in Boston with the Celtics and is known for being one of the best NBA power forwards of all time.

The three time NBA Champion was a third overall pick for the Cs in the 1980 draft and remained in Boston until he retired in 1993. Whilst he was no chump on offense – averaging 17.9 PPG – he was better known for his defensive abilities, highlighted by his 89 rated interior defense and his 94 pick and roll defense IQ.
Like Malone, McHale can also play in the center role, a nice versatile player who despite his 92 OVR, can be picked up for just 11.5k
‘05 Christian Laettner (OVR 92)
Card type: Prime VIP
Position: PF / C
Team: Atlanta Hawks
Best stats: 95 hustle, 95 hands, 95 shot IQ
Another player who comes in at less than 50k with a 92 OVR is the NBA journeyman Christian Laettner
Laettner started his career in Minnesota with the Timberwolves, staying their for four seasons before making the move to Atlanta. It was in his time with Atlanta where he made his first and only NBA All-Star appearance in 1997.
Whilst his NBA record is impressive, Laettner is better remembered for his time in college playing in the NCAA, with his time with the Duke Blue Devils regarded as one of the greatest in the competitions history.
Christian’s hustle is his top rated stat (95 OVR) and rightly so, he grafted from the first whistle to the last, picking up a whopping 5,806 rebounds in his NBA career (88 OVR).
‘76 Bobby Jones (90 OVR)
Card type: Legacy
Team: ‘76-‘77 Philadelphia 76ers

Jones played for two sides in his NBA career, starting with the Denver Nuggets before moving to the 76ers in 1978, where he remained for the rest of his career.
Jones’ was a four time NBA all star and made the All-Defensive team in eight consecutive seasons between 1977-84. His game was all about his defense (90 OVR) and he has no defending stat under 85 rated, making him a great addition for anyone who struggles on that end of the court.
