Boracay Island, Philippines – Zach LaVine finished with career high 49 points that included the game-clinching 3-pointer with 0.8 seconds left to help the Chicago Bulls eke out a 116-115 squeaker over the Hornets on Saturday night (Sunday morning, Philippine time) at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina.
To cap off a magnificent performance, he also joined the Splash Brothers Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson as the only players in league history to have made 13 shots from the rainbow territory in an NBA game.
Rookie sensation Coby White, who played college ball for the University of North Carolina, added 28 points for Chicago off the bench.
Terry Rozier III topscored for Charlotte with 28 markers across his name. Marvin Williams added 21 bench points on a very efficient 9-for-10 field goal shooting.
The Hornets, who dropped to a 6-11 win-loss card, will travel to Miami, Florida to face the Heat on Monday night (Tuesday morning, Philippine time).
Meanwhile, the Bulls, who improved to 6 wins against 11 losses, will host the Portland Trail Blazers on the same date.
How they scored:
Bulls 116 – LaVine 49, White 28, Carter 17, Satoransky 10, Young 5, Markkanen 3, Gafford 2, Dunn 2
Hornets 115 – Rozier III 28, Williams 21, Graham 18, Zeller 14, Bridges 11, Biyombo 11, Monk 6, Washington 3, Batum 3
