Morning Box Score: Bulls Lap Pacers
By Chuck Sudo in News on Mar 6, 2012 2:30PM
Derrick Rose, Luol Deng and Carlos Boozer shot a combined 3-for-21 from the field in the first half, but the Bench Mob and a 33-13 third quarter were more than enough to run the Pacers out of the United Center as the Bulls won their second statement game in as many nights and extended their winning streak to seven games. The Bulls were 9-for-15 from three point land and hit all five of their attempts in the third period. Deng led the Bulls with 20 points, Rose added 13 and Joakim Noah grabbed 17 rebounds. The Bulls had an 18-7 advantage in offensive rebounds and reduced their turnovers after handling the ball in the first half as though it was covered in butter.
Ar 32-8, the Bulls once again have the best record in the NBA. Richard Hamilton, working his way into game shape, injured his shoulder during the game.
