The Chicago Bulls had one off the worst scoring performances in Summer League history Monday afternoon. Their 55 points in their 75-55 loss to the Atlanta Hawks was the second worst scoring effort by a team. The Los Angeles Clippers scored 54 points in a game in 2009. The individual stats make it even worse.

Pitiful performance

Three Bulls players combined for 6 of 36 from the field. Cam Payne led all players with 12 points, but he was one of the three Bulls. Payne shot 4 of 11 from the field. Denzel Valentine went 1 of 12 from the field while Lauri Markkanen was 1 of 13, including an 0 for 10 performance from three point range.

Markkanen was labeled one of the greatest 7-foot jump shooters ever seen at the college level last year at Arizona, but none of that showed Monday afternoon.

The rest of the stats are jaw-dropping, even for a summer league game. The Bulls shot 21.9 percent from the field as a team. They also shot 4 of 35 from three point range which is 11.4 percent. The crazy part about the game is that the Atlanta Hawks didn't do much better. The Hawks shot 35.4 percent from the field and 4 of 18 from three point range, which is 22.2 percent.

When all was said and done, viewers wasted their time watching this game. This game was the equivalent of watching two poor junior varsity teams duke it out. The only difference is that these guys are making millions of dollars.

Other interesting summer league stats

When diving into the record book of summer league, some interesting numbers came across the screen. Two players have scored at least 40 points in a summer league game. Anthony Morrow scored 47 points and Anthony Randolph scored 42 points. Both happened in 2009. Two players have claimed 20 rebounds in a game.

Those players may not ring a bell to fans, though. Joey Dorsey and Lonnie Jones both accomplished that feat. Dorsey did so in 2009, while Jones did so in 2004. Marcus Williams recorded 17 assists in a game in 2009. What do all of these players have in common? You had to Google them to know who they were.

Current stat leaders

Bryn Forbes of the Spurs is averaging 26.5 points a game in two games to lead all players. Matt Costello is averaging 11 rebounds in two games to lead all players in that category. Jason Collins is close behind with 10.5 boards, and is tied with Anthony Gill and Deyonta Davis for second. Isaiah Taylor, Marshall Kendall, and Lonzo Ball are averaging eight assists through two games played.
