Alex Caruso on mindset after role in Bulls win over Timberwolves

So far this season, Alex Caruso has been having one of the best years of his career. Not only has his defensive prowess remained at an all-time high, but he’s also been a menace on the offensive side of the ball. And since the All-Star break, he’s stepped up into an even larger role at times for the Chicago Bulls.

On Sunday night, the Bulls took on the Minnesota Timberwolves, earning a 108-101 win. Caruso played a major role in the victory, locking up Anthony Edwards on one end and pouring in a career-high seven threes on the other. He was instrumental to the Bulls’ success.

“I just tried to focus through All-Star break and then coming out of the break staying true to the work and just being aggressive,” Caruso said. “I think it’s shown over the last couple of games, I’m shooting pretty well just because I know where I’m going to get the shots and then I just trust in the work I’ve put in.”

If the Bulls want to make any sort of noise in the postseason, Caruso’s continued leadership will be crucial.
