Latest Update Mirotic scored 13 off the bench for the Bulls Thu Dec, 18, 11:12 PM
Defensively, he makes the routine play and is as steady as they come, but can also be spectacular when needed. For a middle infielder, he has some pop in his bat.
Flaws: : Strikes out a bit too much, and doesn't walk nearly enough to maximize production. Also doesn't use his speed enough to swipe bases, which would add value to his game.
Mirotic provided some solid production off the bench for the Bulls on Thursday. He not only showed up offensively, but where he really shined was defensively, by digging in and showing a side of himself that scouts didn't know existed when he played in Europe. Look for his role to expand as the season goes on. Analyst: Dom Murtha
Mirotic has raised his season scoring average thanks to his scoring binge of late. He has reached double digits in five of the last six games, while posting two double-doubles in the same span. Mirotic will constantly grab rebounds, and he could continue to be a serviceable play if he keeps the scoring up. Analyst: Colby Conway
Nikola Mirotic has begun to settle into his role with the Bulls over the past week and a half as he has begun find his shooting touch and has gotten more aggressive on the boards. His 12 and 12 stat line played a huge role in the Bulls domination of the Nets on Sunday. Analyst: Dom Murtha
Mirotic has played more minutes in the last two games than he had in any game this season up to this point and seems to be earning the trust of the Bulls' coaching staff. While Chicago is a bit crowded at his preferred power forward spot, Mirotic appears to be a player on the rise in the NBA after being one of Europe's best the last two seasons.Analyst: Paul Moses
