Bulls, Hawks scoring records fall in 4 OTs
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.”
