A rookie outscored an entire team in a quarter. Think about that.

Chicago Bulls freshman guard Coby White caught fire in the fourth quarter of their game against the New York Knicks at the United Center on Tuesday night which they eventually won after blowing the gate wide open, 120-102.

The seventh overall pick of this year’s draft class decided to fool around and tallied more points than the Knicks in the deciding frame, 23-17, behind a record of seven triples which made him the first-ever rookie in league history to nail the said number of threes, as well as grabbing the franchise record for most threes in a quarter.

White finished the game with 27 markers.

"Coby was terrific,"  Bulls’ coach Jim Boylen said. "The beauty in Coby's game is he let it come to him, and also we found him. We kept finding him and feeding him. He was just terrific."

The Bulls outscored the Knicks with 35 against 17 in total, a rousing salvo in the fourth that secured the win.

While it was euphoria inside the arena after White’s historic night, it was a completely diverse mood inside the visitors’ dugout. Imagine having to deal with yet another one-sided beating at the hands of a team not expected to contend, let alone failing to contain a young gun where they were forced to watch and be exposed.

Just two nights ago, the Knicks organization made the rounds of discussion again after its top executives lamented the team’s failure to meet the expectations they set at the start of the season.

The following day, more reports of tension brewing inside the team came about with rumors of firing David Fizdale making the headlines.

The front office led by President Steve Mills, however, dismissed the reports, saying that he still believes in his staff.

"We still believe in our coaching staff. We believe in the plan Scott and I put together and the players that we assembled. But we also have to acknowledge that we haven't played at the level we expected to play at."

Whatever the truth is, fact remains that the Knicks are (still) in serious disarray. It is still a young season, though. Here’s to hoping that they figure things out sooner than later.
