The Hawks came up short against the Bulls 131-116

Atlanta's Dejounte Murray led all scorers with 30 points. Trae Young and Clint Capela each added 22 points. After missing 23 games due to a torn ligament in his left pinkie late in the regular season, Young had 10 assists but committed six turnovers in his return to action. Capela grabbed 17 rebounds. Bogdan Bogdanovic contributed 2Atl1 points. But the Hawks came up short again after dropping their final six regular-season games which is why they are in the play-in game.

Coby White scored a career-high 42 points. White drew roars from the crowd early with vicious crossovers and spins toward the basket. In the bright lights of the arena, he could not be stopped at all, and he saved his best performance for the last.

When asked about his performance he stated, “It was a dope moment for that to happen,” White said. “I'm thankful for the fans. It felt like a playoff vibe. The place was rocking tonight.”

Ayo Dosunmu added 19 points after missing the previous four regular-season games due to a bruised right quadricep. Nikola Vucevic had a total of 24 points and 12 rebounds for Chicago. DeMar DeRozan finished with 22 points and nine assists.

Chicago visits Miami on Friday for a shot at the No. 8 seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs and a first-round matchup with Boston. The Heat lost 105-104 to Philadelphia on Wednesday. There is a possibility that Jimmy Butler could not play for the Heat due to a knee injury he sustained early in that game. Butler played through it and said he would need an MRI on Thursday
