Deng, Bulls dominate WarriorsNov 12, 2010 - 6:07 AM Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - Luol Deng scored 26 points, pulled down 11 rebounds, and dished out six assists, as the Chicago Bulls destroyed the Golden State Warriors, 120-90, from United Center.
Derrick Rose added 22 points and 13 assists for the Bulls, who have won the first two games of a three-game homestand. Joakim Noah finished with 17 points, seven boards, and five assists.
"Usually when teams come in on a back-to-back, we've got to speed up our offense and get down the court quick enough," Rose said.
Monta Ellis tallied 24 points, five rebounds, and five assists for the Warriors, who were without center David Lee (elbow). Stephen Curry had 17 points, six assists, and five steals for Golden State, which fell to 2-2 on a five-game road trip.
Andris Biedrins' hook shot gave Golden State an 8-6 edge, but the visitors never led the rest of the way. Chicago responded with a 14-2 run that Rose ended with a jumper for a 20-10 margin with under six minutes to go.
The Bulls ripped off 10 unanswered points moments later to extend their lead. Deng tallied six points during the burst, which Rose ended with a layup and dunk to make it 30-16. The home team took a 34-20 advantage into the second.
Chicago used a 15-3 flurry during the middle stages of the second to essentially put the game out of reach. Taj Gibson had six points during the run that saw the Bulls take a 61-31 lead. It was 66-38 at the half.
The Warriors never threatened in the second half.
"Give them credit. The Bulls played a very good, aggressive game," Warriors head coach Keith Smart said. "We just didn't have the juice to compete tonight. They came out and attacked us. We then turned over the ball. We just have to move on from here."
Golden State snapped a four-game skid against the Bulls with a 114-97 win in Oakland back in January. The Warriors, however, have dropped nine of their last 10 trips to the Windy City...Keith Bogans and Gibson each had 14 points for Chicago...Lee suffered a left elbow laceration during Wednesday's game against the Knicks. He is considered day-to-day...The Bulls set a team record for least fouls in a game with seven. The previous record was nine against New York on January 21, 1997.
