Coby White’s second night with at least 20 points in three games wasn’t enough for the Chicago Bulls to stop Danny Green and the once-again streaking Philadelphia 76ers despite scoring 15 points without a turnover in the fourth quarter.

After scoring 11 points in the Sixers’ 113–111 overtime win at San Antonio on Sunday night, Green netted 14 Monday in Philadelphia’s 106–94 win at Chicago for a fifth consecutive victory.

Green’s four steals against Chicago marked the sixth time this season with at least four steals and he’s swiped five twice.

With Chicago’s leading scorer Zach LaVine rejoining the team after completing the NBA’s health and safety protocols, it will be interesting to see what White’s role will be if LaVine returns to action Thursday at Charlotte. In the last 10 games, White is averaging 18 points, six assists and three rebounds.

Against the Sixers, White collected 23 points, five 3-pointers, two rebounds and five assists against three turnovers while being guarded most of the night by Ben Simmons. White notched three of those 3-pointers in the fourth quarter but Chicago could never take the lead in the final quarter, cutting its deficit to one point once.


Reggie Bullock’s New York Knicks are also streaking again. Bullock scored 11 points in Sunday’s 122–97 victory at Houston and 13 in Monday’s 118–104 win at Memphis for the Knicks’ third consecutive victory.


Cole Anthony didn’t have his best night after a career game in his previous outing but it was enough for Orlando to win 119–112 Monday at Detroit.

Anthony was held to single-digit points for only the second time in the 15 games coming back from his rib injury with eight points while collecting four rebounds, four assists and three turnovers. His 4.1 game score his the lowest since returning.

Detroit’s Wayne Ellington missed his third consecutive game with a strained calf.


In Phoenix’s 123–120 Sunday win at Oklahoma City, Cameron Johnson collected 12 points and two 3-pointers.
