Bulls, Hawks scor­ing records fall in 4 OTs

The Charlotte Observer (Sunday) - - Sports -

Chicago and At­lanta each set fran­chise records for points in a game as the vis­it­ing Bulls topped the Hawks 168-161 in four over­time pe­ri­ods. Chicago’s Zach LaVine (47 points) and At­lanta’s Young (49) each scored ca­reer highs and played al­most 56 min­utes.

LaVine said the game was ex­haust­ing.

“I’ve never been part of a game that long,” LaVine said. “… I air­balled one be­cause I was so damn tired.”

Young had 16 as­sists, eight re­bounds and nine turnovers. Oth­er­wise, his line was very sim­i­lar to LaVine’s.

Young made 17 of 33 shots, in­clud­ing six 3point­ers. LaVine made 17 of 35 shots with six 3s. Each played al­most 56 min­utes.

“That was a fun game to play, prob­a­bly one of the most fun games I’ve played in my ca­reer,” Young said. “… I’m proud of the way we fought. We came up short but I love the way we fought.”
