Zach LaVineA is shooting a career-high 87 percent on a career-high 5.9 free-throw attempts per game.

Thata€™s the good news.

The bad news is that LaVine believes he should be going to the line even more often. In part by followingA Jim Boylena€™s preferred philosophy to drive the ball instead of settling for jump shots, the 6-foot-5 guard is attacking the rim. A lot.

There have been several recent instances when LaVine has raised his hands in protest, thinking he drew a foul. In other words, LaVine a€” and theA BullsA a€” want LaVinea€™s free-throw attempts to rise.

a€œI think Ia€™ve done a good job of finishing through the contact,a€ LaVine said. a€œIt gets frustrating, but ita€™s part of the game. You cana€™t dwell on it. Get a tech here and there, maybe.a€

LaVine, who has drawn only two technical fouls this season, chuckled as he offered that last thought. His serious approach is to keep doing what hea€™s doing.
