Coby White made a franchise-record seven 3-pointers in the fourth quarter, and the Chicago Bulls pulled away from the slumping New York Knicks for a 120-102 victory Tuesday.

 

White missed his first five shots from the field and began the final period with just four points. But the 19-year-old rookie put on a dazzling show down the stretch, delighting a United Center crowd that included Roy Williams, White's coach at the University of North Carolina.

 

White connected from deep on three straight Chicago possessions during a 24-2 run that made it 109-89 with 5:51 remaining. He made one last 3 to run the Bulls' lead out to 120-100 before checking out with 1:31 to go.

 

White finished with 27 points. Zach LaVine had 25 for Chicago, and Wendell Carter Jr. finished with 17 points and 12 rebounds.

 

New York lost for the sixth time in seven games. Marcus Morris scored 22 points for the Knicks, and rookie RJ Barrett finished with 21 points and nine assists. Taj Gibson and Julius Randle each scored 17 points.

 

The Bulls visit the Milwaukee Bucks on Thursday night.
