Dunleavy scored 21 points (8-17 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT) in 38 minutes Thursday in a win over the Thunder, in addition to grabbing four rebounds and dishing out two assists.

Dunleavy has been wildly inconsistent as of late. In his two previous games, he was held to a combined eight points, but also scored 21 Feb. 27 against the Timberwolves.

It's the second time in four games Dunleavy has laid a goose egg in his stat line, and he's been mostly ineffective since returning to action from his ankle injury six games ago. With Derrick Rose once again on the shelf, the Bulls need Dunleavy to find his shot, or he'll continue losing minutes to players like Tony Snell.
