HOUSTON — Coby White scored 24 points, and the Chicago Bulls used a big third quarter to pull away for a 120-100 win over the short-handed Houston Rockets on Monday night.

Zach LaVine scored 14 of Chicago's 46 third-quarter points, finishing with 21, as the Bulls outscored the Rockets by 20 points in the quarter to break open a tight game.

“He’s an efficient scorer because he scores not taking a lot of shots,” coach Billy Donovan said of LaVine, who made 4 of 6 3s on Tuesday. “When he lets it go from behind the line you feel like it’s going in.”

Chicago had runs of 15-4 and 12-0 in the third period. During that second burst, Houston missed four shots, two of which were air balls, and had a turnover.

Back from weather break, Mavericks beat Grizzlies 102-92

  Back from weather break, Mavericks beat Grizzlies 102-92 DALLAS — Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 20 of his 29 points while Dallas built a big first-half lead without much help from Luka Doncic, and the Mavericks returned from a weather-induced break with a 102-92 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday night. Dallas was playing for the first time in eight days after two postponements because of a wintry weather blast in Texas. Kristaps Porzingis didn’t play after showing up on the injury report the day of the game with back stiffness. Doncic scored 14 of his 21 points after halftime in his first game since the soon-to-be 22-year-old became the first Dallas player to be voted an All-Star starter in consecutive seasons.

Houston coach Stephen Silas said LaVine's breakout quarter was pivotal.

“I think him getting hot caused some adversity that we didn’t handle correctly,” Silas said. “We have at times succumbed to that adversity and let them do what they want to do and that was the case tonight.”

David Nwaba scored 22 points off the bench to lead Houston, which has lost eight straight. The Rockets had their previous two games postponed because of a winter storm and subsequent utility outages in the Houston area.

“It got away from us as far as our defensive principles, our chemistry, our togetherness,” Silas said. “All of the things that you need to compete in an NBA game we didn’t have tonight.”

The Rockets have been without centre Christian Wood since Feb. 5, and DeMarcus Cousins, who has been filling in for him, sat out Monday with a sore right heel. Victor Oladipo remained sidelined with a strained right foot.

STUMPING FOR ZACH

Donovan has talked often about LaVine's improved play this season, and he hopes LaVine's performance will put him into the All-Star game for the first time when reserves are announced on Tuesday night.

“He’s learning, he’s evolving, he’s growing, and he continues to get better,” Donovan said. “My feeling is he’s played at an All-Star level and I don’t anybody would dispute that. He deserves to be in the game."

LaVine ranks sixth in the league in scoring by averaging a career-best 28.6 points per game and his 5.1 assists are also a career high.

WHITE'S SPILL

White went to the locker room for a few minutes early in the third quarter after falling down chasing a loose ball and crashing into the padded backstop on the goal.

“My nose was busted, other than that I was cool,” he said. “They just had to stop the bleeding.”
