Bussevich started to pick up little by little in the new year.

On this day, Chicago failed to keep its lead in the first half and slowed down by allowing a turnaround in the second half, but kept its concentration until the end of the game and kept the victory.
Dermadrojan and Kobe White, who scored important points in the fourth quarter while beating their opponents, were also impressive, but the player who shone the most in Chicago on the day was Nikola Vusevic, the main center.
After playing the court for 34 minutes and 53 seconds, Vusevic completed a double-double with 24 points, 13 rebounds and 7 assists, posting the team’s highest court margin of +23 on the day.
Bussevich, who is in charge of one of the pillars of Chicago’s offense along with DeRozan and Jack Lavigne, has averaged 16.8 points, 10.4 rebounds, and 3.4 assists this season.
Although his average score has decreased slightly from last season, Vusevic’s impact on the game has decreased due to the significant drop in shooting efficiency this season. His field goal success rate of 46.1% this season is the lowest since his debut season, and his 3-point shooting success rate of 27.2% is also the worst since the 2017-2018 season, when he increased his attempts to shoot outside in earnest.
Starting this year, however, Vucevic started to recover little by little. He has posted double-doubles in five of the seven games he played since returning from injury in recent three consecutive games, and has posted an average of 18.4 points, 11.1 rebounds, and 4.0 assists in his seven games in January, gradually enhancing his sense of play.
With the victory, Chicago had 20 wins and 23 losses for the season, maintaining its ninth place in the Eastern Conference. His pace has improved a lot compared to the beginning of the season.
Chicago’s next opponent, who is looking for a bigger rebound with Bussevic, who is slowly waking up, is Memphis, which will face at home on the 21st.
