Coby White scored six of his 20 points in overtime and hit two free throws with 15.1 seconds left to lead the Chicago Bulls to a 133–126 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves.

That made up for a mistake at the end of regulation. He fouled Ricky Rubio behind the 3-point line with 4.9 seconds left. Rubio made all three free throws to tie the game and force overtime.

“I felt like I fouled him well before the shot,” White said. “He didn’t even know I was fouling him. I fouled him, they called it five seconds later after he threw the ball.”

Chicago has won five of their last six games.

It was White’s ninth game of 20 or more points on a night that he missed all six 3-point attempts and committed a season-high seven turnovers. He did, however, have eight rebounds and six assists.

Ed Davis again didn’t play for Minnesota and hasn’t gotten into the last nine games.


In the Phoenix Suns’ 124–121 home loss to Charlotte, Cameron Johnson collected 10 of his 14 points in the second half and had five rebounds and two 3-pointers for the game.


In Oklahoma City’s 102–99 home win over San Antonio, Justin Jackson had five points, three rebounds and three assists in 13 minutes.
