Chicago will travel to Miami to try and earn the No. 8 seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs

Coby White delivered a career-best performance, dropping an impressive 42 points to propel the Chicago Bulls past the Atlanta Hawks and advance in the play-in tournament.

White, who surpassed his previous career high of 37 points, attacked the rim relentlessly throughout the game, earning chants of his name from the enthusiastic fans as the Bulls cruised past the Hawks. With this victory, Chicago earns a trip to Miami on Friday to compete for the No. 8 seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs and a chance to face off against the Boston Celtics in the first round. This opportunity comes after the Miami Heat’s narrow 105-104 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, Dejounte Murray led the way for Atlanta with an impressive 30-point performance. However, despite Murray’s efforts, the Hawks fell short once again, extending their losing streak to seven games, including the final six games of the regular season.

Nikola Vucevic contributed significantly for the Bulls with 24 points and 12 rebounds, while DeMar DeRozan added 22 points and nine assists to secure the victory for Chicago.
