SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Colby White had 24 points and the Chicago Bulls overcame Victor Wembanyama's big night to hand the San Antonio Spurs their franchise record-tying 16th straight loss, 121-112 on Friday.
Wembanyama had 21 points and 20 rebounds as the Spurs matched the team record they set last season.
Nikola Vucevic added 21 points and 16 rebounds for Chicago. DeMar DeRozan had 20 points and 10 rebounds, Patrick Williams also had 20 points and Torey Craig finished with 16 points to help Chicago win its fourth straight and snap a seven-game road skid.
Keldon Johnson had 20 points for San Antonio. Tre Jones added a season-high 18.
Wembanyama had 10 points and 11 rebounds in the first half for his 10th double-double of the season and first in a first half. He made a spin move away from Andre Drummond to the rim for a two-handed dunk off an inbounds pass from Jones.
The Spurs altered their starting lineup for the second consecutive game, with Malaki Branham joining Wembanyama, Johnson, Jeremy Sochan and Devin Vassell. They had shared the floor together only six possessions this season prior to Friday.
White's 3-pointer gave the Bulls a 69-68 lead with 6:41 remaining in the third quarter. Chicago outscored San Antonio 35-20 in the third in taking an 87-83 lead.
With Collins coming off the bench and the Spurs using smaller lineups, the Bulls took advantage of their height advantage to grab 24 offensive rebounds to 10 for the Spurs.
