The Oklahoma City Thunder couldn’t stop Coby White, but eventually came away with the win against the sluggish Chicago Bulls.

White is anything than sluggish in the last three games coming off the bench. Last night, he scored a new career-high 35 points to become the first rookie ever to put 30+ points in three consecutive games off the bench.

According to Elias Sports Bureau research, he is third overall player to have 30+ points in a 3-streak games off the bench, since 1970-1971 season.

This was a special night for White, who played against his mentor Chris Paul. White used to play on CP3’s AAU squad.
