Rose Helps Bulls to Late Rally Over Nuggets
CHICAGO (AP) -- Derrick Rose scored 18 points, including eight during a furious fourth quarter rally, to help the Chicago Bulls beat the Denver Nuggets 94-92 on Monday night.

Luol Deng added 17 points and Taj Gibson had 16 points for the Bulls.

Denver led 80-74 with just under seven minutes left before Chicago went on a 16-6 run sparked by Rose.

Carmelo Anthony's basket with 15.3 seconds left cut the Bulls' lead to 90-88. Joakim Noah hit a free throw to extend the margin back to three points. Deng fouled Anthony, who made two free throws, to make it a one-point game with 11 seconds left.

Chicago hit two more free throws and Arron Afflalo missed a 3-pointer that would have tied it.

Anthony led Denver with 32 points.
