Play by Play

In the first quarter, both teams started cautiously, with the Hawks struggling early with their three-point shooting. Despite Hunter's early foul that led to free throws for Chicago, the Hawks' Murray and Capela managed to stay in the game.

However, the Bulls went on a 16-2 run, fueled by DeRozan's 11 points. Moving into the second quarter, the Hawks woke up offensively, riding a 14-0 run to cut the Bulls' lead to four points.

Despite Caruso's injury momentarily shifting the momentum, the Bulls battled back to extend their lead to 13 points going into halftime.

On his impressive performance, White commented "I just wanted to be aggressive and take advantage of what the defense was giving me and try to lead. Going into games, I just want to try to try to make an impact on winning on both sides of the court. That's what I focus on."

For the Hawks, DeJounte Murray had a gutsy 30-point performance, with Clint Capela and Trae Young contributing 22 points each. Capela's presence on the boards with 17 rebounds and Young's playmaking ability with 10 assists highlighted his efforts to keep the Hawks competitive.
