Doug McDermott is mostly known as a seldom-used sharp shooter for the Chicago Bulls, but the second-year forward has taken advantage of additional playing time due to injuries in recent weeks to make a difference for his team.
McDermott has been impressive in the month of February, averaging 13.4 points on 53.3 percent shooting and 44.7 percent from the arc. On Wednesday against the Washington Wizards, though, the forward showed he’s got more to his offensive game than just shooting as he unleashed a pair of dunks that ignited the United Center crowd:
Former Bulls great Scottie Pippen was on hand to watch the action and was pleasantly surprised by what he saw from McDermott:
OK @dougmcd3 I knew you could dunk but not like that! Keep it up my man.
