With Joakim Noah back in the mix and the help of Luol Deng, the Chicago Bulls managed an 83-75 win over the Milwaukee Bucks Saturday night. Noah fueled the Bulls with 17 rebounds and Deng responded with 19 points in the win.
Derrick Rose had 17 points and the Bulls won six of seven, improving 15-4 since Jan. 14. The pressure is now building in Boston and Miami especially after the Bulls took down the Heat 93-89 Thursday night.
Carlos Boozer was off to a slow start but managed 13 points. The Bulls opened their critical five-game road trip in style and improved 12-0 against Central Division teams. They will head to Washington Monday.
