DeMar DeRozan may have won the game for the Chicago Bulls on Friday against the Indiana Pacers, but he knows it won't be possible without one of his teammates: Coby White.

DeRozan gave White a ton of credit for keeping the Bulls in the game despite his struggles early in the contest. As DeRozan had a hard time making his shots–finishing 8-of-24 from the field en route to 28 points–it was White who kept them afloat with a largely efficient night.

White recorded 24 points on 63.6 percent shooting from the field. He went 6-of-7 from 3-point territory, all while putting up two rebounds, four assists, three steals and one block.

“Without Coby, we don’t win this game,” DeRozan said after the 108-106 win over the Pacers, per KC Johnson of NBC Sports.

DeMar DeRozan banked the game-winner for Chicago at the buzzer, sending his teammates and the Bulls fans in attendance into frenzy, and he rightfully deserves a ton of credit for his work.

His game-winner was also not easy at all. Against a tough Pacers defense, his New Year's eve heave (as Zach LaVine called it) with just one legs can certainly be considered the wildest game-winner of 2021.

Nonetheless, it is only right to give White the praise he deserves for his performance throughout. When things are not going right for the Bulls, he brought some much-needed stability that helped propel the Windy City franchise to the victoy.
