Rawle Alkins scored his first NBA points Sunday, draining a 3-pointer late in the fourth quarter of the Chicago Bulls’ win over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Alkins also grabbed two rebounds in two minutes.

It was his second appearance with Chicago, after he was recently called up from the G League, where he was averaging 15.5 points, 6.1 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game on .453/.388/.605 shooting with the Windy City Bulls.

Alkins is on a two-way contract, meaning he is limited to 45 days in the NBA.

Alkins’ former Arizona teammate, Lauri Markkanen, was the star in Sunday’s game, dropping 31 points on 11-of-18 shooting.
