One Tar Heel whose team is definitely in the playoffs, Reggie Bullock, had a season-best scoring game and another who is trying to fight to get his team in the playoffs, Coby White, had another big game on Sunday night.

Reggie Bullock scored a season-high 24 points and made five 3-pointers as New York earned a 106–100 road win over the Los Angeles Clippers to snap a two-game losing streak.

With five 3-pointers, it was Bullock’s ninth game this season with at least five 3-pointers. He added four rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block. Bullock’s 19.9 game score was his second-best this season, only bettered by the 20.0 in his 22-point game at Detroit on April 3.


White scored 21 points in Chicago’s 128–96 blowout of Detroit for his third game of at least 21 points in the last three outings and third in the last six. With five 3-pointers, White has at least five 3s in three of the last four games.

The Bulls pulled within 2½ games of Indiana for the last Eastern Conference playoff spot. The Bulls have two games left but the Pacers have five games remaining.

Wayne Ellington didn’t play in that game for Detroit with a sore calf muscle after scoring three points in 24 minutes on Saturday night in a 118–104 loss at Philadelphia. Danny Green had 11 points, three 3-pointers, four assists and two steals in that game for the Sixers.


Cole Anthony collected 11 points, four rebounds and three assists in Orlando’s 128–96 home loss to Minnesota. Ed Davis had two rebounds in six scoreless minutes for the Timberwolves, playing for the first time in nine games. His last previous action was April 18.


Harrison Barnes missed his seventh consecutive game with left adductor tightness and Cameron Johnson missed his second straight with a left wrist injury.
