Tar Heels in NBA: Sharpe gets second NBA double-double; Barnes, Anthony, Bullock, White all score in double figures

By R.L. Bynum

Six UNC alums scored in double figures on Saturday night, led by 21 from Harrison Barnes and 17 each from Cole Anthony and Reggie Bullock, with Day’Ron Sharpe producing his second NBA double-double.

Sharpe collected 10 points and a career-high 12 rebounds in 27 minutes in Brooklyn’s 115–111 road loss to Miami. Sharpe, who had three assists and a steal, was a team-high +24 as the Nets (29–17) lost their 11th consecutive game and fell to eighth in the Eastern Conference.

“This one hurts, for real. We’ve lost 11 straight. We thought it was gonna be the one,” said Sharpe, whose best previous rebound game was 10 three times.

Sharpe had five double-doubles last season for Carolina.


Barnes pulled down five rebounds in addition to his 21 points as Sacramento won 123–110 at Washington for the Kings’ second consecutive victory.

The new-look Kings, who acquired six players at the trade deadline, got 16 points and 11 rebounds from Domantas Sabonis, who Sacramento acquired from Indiana last week.

Sacramento coach Alvin Gentry said Barnes had been having conversations about getting to the free-throw line and creating contact rather than avoiding it. Barnes was 7 of 9 from the line Saturday after combining to make all 22 attempts in the previous two games.

Barnes’ 18.8 game score was his 14th this season of at least 18.


Reggie Bullock tied his season-high with six 3-pointers in a season-high 40 minutes to get his 17 points as Dallas dropped a 99–97 home game to the Los Angeles Clippers.

It was his third game with six 3-pointers this season and second in the last four games. He went past the 650 career 3-pointer milestone to push his total to 654.

After Bullock’s 3-pointer with 4:55 left, Luka Doncic, who scored 23 of his 45 points in the fourth quarter, scored the Mavericks’ last 19 points.

Theo Pinson didn’t play for Dallas.


In addition to his 17 points, Anthony had four rebounds and three assists in Orlando’s 132–105 loss at Phoenix. Cameron Johnson had 10 points and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes for the Suns (46–10), who have won five consecutive games. The Magic (13–35) have lost back-to-back games.


Coby White started alongside rookie Ayo Dosunmu in Chicago backcourt in the Bulls’ 106–101 home win over Oklahoma City because Zach LaVine was out with a left knee injury.

White scored 16 points and four 3-pointers with a season-high nine rebounds and five assists in 37 minutes.

White’s 3-pointer with 5:36 left started an 8–0 Chicago run and his 3 with 1:10 left pushed the Bulls’ lead to 104–97.

Tony Bradley was scoreless in a minute of action.


Danny Green started and had six points and two blocks in Philadelphia’s 103–93 home win over Cleveland. Ed Davis was scoreless with a rebound, two assists and a block in three minutes for the Cavaliers.


Wayne Ellington didn’t play (coach’s decision) in the Los Angeles Lakers’ 117–115 loss at Golden State. That was the sixth time in the last seven games he hasn’t played.
