Zach LaVine scored 14 of his 21 points in a runaway third quarter as visiting the Chicago Bulls rolled over the reeling and short-handed Houston Rockets 120-100.

After scoring just seven points prior to halftime, LaVine spearheaded a scorching third period for the Bulls by shooting 5 of 5 from the floor, including three 3-pointers. He scored 11 consecutive points for Chicago during one surge, leading the Bulls to a season-best 46-point frame.

Meanwhile, Coby White led the game with 24 points, 10 rebounds and two assists for the Bills.

Houston’s David Nwaba finished with 22 points and nine rebounds, and fellow reserve Sterling Brown had 16 points.

The Rockets, playing without Christian Wood (ankle), Victor Oladipo (foot), and DeMarcus Cousins (heel), dropped their eighth consecutive game.
