Derrick White returned to Colorado, where he grew up. He scored 10 points on the night. At one point he snagged a rebound at the rim and dunked. Impressive, and then there was this:

He's doubled his career high.
Even facing a loss where the Spurs’ missed free throws cost them the game, White’s performance cannot be sullied.

Here’s to more success from the former Buffalo.
