OAKLAND — Luol Deng scored 23 points, Carlos Boozer had 21 points and nine rebounds, and the Chicago Bulls bounced back from their most lopsided loss of the season to whip the Golden State Warriors 113-95 on Friday night.
Two nights after a 121-79 shellacking at Sacramento that renewed calls for Derrick Rose's return, the Bulls outscored the Warriors 38-17 in the third quarter to snap a season-high, five-game road losing streak. They led by 36 points early in the fourth quarter before both sides cleared the benches.
Nate Robinson added 20 points and seven assists, while Joakim Noah finished with 16 points and 13 rebounds for Chicago, which had lost four of five overall. The Bulls outshot the Warriors 52 to 45 percent and won the rebounding battle 43-34.
Jarrett Jack scored 20 points and David Lee had 15 points and eight rebounds for the Warriors, who missed their first 11 shots from 3-point range before making their last three. Golden State ended its longest homestand of the season with a 4-3 record.
Chicago again played without Rose, the NBA's MVP of the 2010-11 season who tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee last April.
