LaVine's 36 points lift Bulls past Pelicans 128-124

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Zach LaVine capped a 36-point performance with a driving layup and four free throws during the final minute, and the Chicago Bulls held off a late rally to beat the mercurial New Orleans Pelicans 128-124 on Wednesday night.

"I've got to stay aggressive," LaVine said, noting that he might have been too eager to pass when the Pelicans tightened the game up in the final five minutes. "It makes the play a little bit easier, because if they don't stop me, then obviously I'm at the rim or have an open shot.

"I feel comfortable taking those free throws at the end of the game," LaVine added.
