White finished with 37 points, powering the Chicago Bulls (29-32) to a 113-109 comeback road victory over Barnes and the Sacramento Kings (34-26). He shot 14-for-19 from the field, 5-for-9 beyond the arc, and 4-for-5 at the foul line, adding five rebounds, seven assists, and one steal across his game-high 44 minutes on the floor. 

The 24-year-old full-time starter's filthiest score came early in the second quarter with the Bulls trailing, 36-29, as White pulled out his dance moves and hops en route to punishing Barnes.

"Watch your head, Harrison Barnes," the announcer gasped in the following highlight after White zoomed by his Tar Heel elder and took flight to put the dizzied Barnes on a poster:

Here is Chicago's "COBY WHITE IS A BAD MAN" mixtape from the night, including three clutch buckets and a free throw in the final three minutes of action:

Barnes, a former No. 7 overall draft pick who has started all 60 Sacramento games in his 12th NBA season, tallied 10 points, one board, one dime, and one takeaway in the loss. His 12.1 points per outing mark his lowest average since 2015-16.

As for White, he also has zero absences this season. But he continues to average career-highs across the board since getting drafted by Chicago at No. 7 overall five years ago: 19.6 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 5.3 assists.
