Bulls defeat Hawks 131-116 and will face the Heat

Chicago. Coby White scored a career-high 42 points and the Chicago Bulls advanced in the playoff mini-tournament, defeating the Atlanta Hawks 131-116 this Wednesday.

White, whose previous record was 37 points, attacked the rim decisively during the game and made the fans chant his name in the final stretch, when the Bulls already had a clear advantage over Atlanta.

Chicago will visit the Miami Heat, of Mexican Jaime Jáquez Jr. this Friday, in search of a ticket as the eighth place in the Eastern Conference to the playoffs. This grants the right to face Boston in the first round.

The Heat fell 105-104 to Philadelphia also this Wednesday.

Dejounte Murray led Atlanta with 30 points. However, the Hawks fell short again, after losing their final six games of the regular season.

Nikola Vucevic had 24 points and 12 rebounds for Chicago. DeMar DeRozan finished with 22 points and nine assists.

Ayo Dosunmu added 19 points after missing the last four games of the regular season due to a bruised right quadriceps. The Bulls shot 56.8 percent from the field.
