Morning Box Score: Bulls Hold Off Sacramento

By Chuck Sudo in News on Dec 30, 2011 2:30PM

Bulls 108, Sacramento 98

That's more like it. The Bulls got Tom Thibodeau's message loud and clear last night after an lethargic loss at Golden State and came out of the blocks strong in a win against Sacramento. Carlos Boozer looked like the player the Bulls paid for when they signed him last season, with 16 points and 15 rebounds. Derrick Rose added 19 points and eight assists and was more assertive in driving the lanes. Rip Hamilton added 16 points and Ronnie Brewer scored 12 off the bench for the Bulls. Kings guard Marcus Thornton led all scorers with 20 points. The Bulls now head back to Los Angeles to take on the new-look Clippers tonight. (9:30 p.m., WGN-TV, WMVP-AM 1000)
