|TORONTO (AP)-- Derrick Rose scored 26 points, Joakim Noah had 18 points, 19 rebounds and seven assists and the Chicago Bulls beat the Toronto Raptors 104-88 Sunday night to take over eighth place in the Eastern Conference.
Luol Deng scored 14 points, Taj Gibson had 11 and Ronald Murray and Hakim Warrick each scored 10 points for the Bulls, who led by 25 points.
Chicago has won eight of 12 since Noah returned from a foot injury that forced him to miss 10 games. The Bulls went 0-10 without him.
Sonny Weems and Andrea Bargnani each scored 18 points for the injury-riddled Raptors, who lost their fifth straight. Hedo Turkoglu had a career-high 19 rebounds and nine assists but shot 2 for 12 and scored just six points.
