White claimed the record in the 124-133 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks on Thursday. He dropped 26 points and was 6-of-13 from deep. In the previous game, a 120-102 win over the New York Knicks, the 19-year-old scored 27 points and was 7-of-11 from downtown. All of his 3-pointers in the Knicks game were made in the fourth quarter.
These back-to-back stellar performances come after White’s initial struggles. As the seventh overall pick of the 2019 NBA Draft, much was expected from the North Carolina standout. But like most rookies, White needed some time to adjust.
And the past two games can be taken as an indication that White may have figured some things out. This will definitely trickle into all aspects of his game and give him that much-needed confidence boost. For Bulls fans, keep your eyes peeled on this up and coming talent. He just might be the missing piece that the team needs desperately.
