It was raining 3s in Chicago on Wednesday night.
Zach LaVine scored a season-high 46 points, hitting nine of Chicago’s franchise-record 25 3-pointers, and the Bulls cooled off the New Orleans Pelicans with a 129-116 victory.
Coby White made eight 3s and scored 30 points in an impressive show by Chicago’s starting backcourt. Led by LaVine and White, the Bulls went 25 for 47 from beyond the arc and shot 59% (48-for-81) overall.Zach LaVine was in a zone against the Pelicans.
LaVine and White are the first teammates in NBA history to each make at least eight 3-pointers in the same game.
“You wish it could happen every game,” LaVine said. “Obviously, it can’t … but when you get in a zone, you want to stay in it.”
It’s also the third time LaVine and White have combined for 75+ points, second most in Bulls history behind Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen (six times).
