Morning Box Score: Bull Extend Win Streak, Hawks Fall
By Chuck Sudo in News on Dec 14, 2010 4:00PM
Bulls 92, Pacers 73: Carlos Boozer scored 22 points and grabbed 18 rebounds, Derrick Rose added 17 points and 12 assists and channeled Allen Iverson on the court last night to help the Bulls pull away from Indiana at the United Center. Rose rolled his ankle in the fourth quarter and later landed hard on the court on a drive to the basket, which likely had some at the UC gasping when he came down. The win over the Pacers extended the Bulls win streak to six games and, with an upcoming schedule that includes Toronto, the Clippers and Philadelphia, have a good opportunity to keep winning.
Avalanche 7, Blackhawks 5: The goaltending controversy takes another turn, as Marty Turco was pulled in the first period for Corey Crawford. But Crawford gave up the game winner to earn his second straight loss. The Blackhawks were able to hang with Colorado through the first two periods, but Tomas Fleischmann tied the game and assisted on game winner.
Troy Brouwer scored two goals in the loss for the Blackhawks.
