Improving Bulls Take Down Boston
BOSTON (AP) -- Luol Deng scored 25 points and the Chicago Bulls won their third straight game with a 96-83 victory over the Boston Celtics Thursday night.

The Celtics, whose only lead was 2-0, trailed 86-80 after Paul Pierce hit a 3-pointer with 3:50 left. But the Bulls scored eight of the next nine points, six by Joakim Noah, to build the lead to 94-81.

Pierce scored 20 points and Rajon Rondo added 15 for the Celtics, playing their fourth game in five nights. The loss dropped them to 11-6 at home after they went 35-6 there in each of the past two seasons.

The Bulls won for only the second time in their last 12 road contests as they began a stretch of 10 of 12 games away from home.
