|Rose Scores 36, Powers Bulls Past Celtics
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Derrick Rose scored 36 points, Carlos Boozer added 22 points and 10 rebounds, and the Chicago Bulls cooled off the Boston Celtics with a 90-79 victory on Saturday night.
Rose set career highs for free throws made and attempted with a 15-for-19 performance from the line, driving by Rajon Rondo over and over again before usually drawing contact from one or more of Boston's big men. Rondo and Jermaine O'Neal each finished the game with five fouls and Shaquille O'Neal had four.
Paul Pierce had 21 points and Ray Allen added 19 for Boston, which had won four straight and five of seven. The Celtics also dropped to 5-2 since star forward Kevin Garnett went out with a right calf injury.
