Kerwin Walton wasn’t the only Tar Heel with five 3-pointers Saturday night.

Coby White made 5 of 8 attempts from 3-point range, including an important one with 2:11 left as well as two free throws with 10.1 seconds left, as the Chicago Bulls earned a 122–114 home win over the Sacramento Kings.

It was White’s second 19-point game in the last four and, although he only had two assists, he didn’t turn the ball over in just over 35 minutes. He pulled down three rebounds, swiped a steal and blocked a shot.

White had seven games with five or more 3-pointers during his rookie season but this is only the second time he’s done it in 29 games this season. His career-high was eight against New Orleans on Feb. 10 when he scored 30 points.

For the second consecutive game, the Kings were without Harrison Barnes as he tries to recover from a left foot strain. Sacramento plays at Milwaukee on Sunday night.


In the Phoenix Suns’ 128–97 win at Memphis, Cameron Johnson had two points, three rebounds, two steals and a block in 13 minutes. That playing time was a season-low by more than five minutes.


Nassir Little scored two points in just shy of five minutes of Portland’s 118–111 home loss to Washington. Since returning after missing five games with left knee strain, he’s played more than five minutes in only two of five games.
