|CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- D.J. Augustin had 22 points and 12 assists, hit four decisive free throws down the stretch and outplayed Derrick Rose in the Charlotte Bobcats' 96-91 victory over the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday night.

Carlos Boozer had 23 points and 14 rebounds, and Luol Deng added 22 points for Chicago. Rose had 17 points on 5-of-17 shooting and had a key turnover in the final minute.
