Chicago took control in the first six minutes of the second half by holding the Hornets to just a pair of field goals. White capped a 19-4 run with a 3-pointer that gave the Bulls a 67-48 lead midway through the third. Charlotte never got closer than eight points the rest of the night.
Hornets guard LaMelo Ball (right ankle sprain) missed his fourth straight game and the team scratched starting center Mark Williams (back contusion) from the lineup hours before tipoff. Charlotte used just three players off the bench.
Chicago guard Zach LaVine missed his third straight game because of an injured right foot.
The Bulls pushed the lead into double-digits for the first time with a 16-3 run midway through the second quarter but Charlotte closed the half on a 15-3 spurt to trail 48-44 at intermission.
Hornets: Host Toronto on Friday night.
Bulls: At San Antonio on Friday night.
