Salmons, Deng Lead Bulls Past Knicks
CHICAGO (AP) -- Luol Deng scored 24 points, John Salmons added 20 and the Chicago Bulls rallied from 17 down to beat the New York Knicks 98-89 Thursday night for their third win in 14 games.

The Bulls took control with a 15-2 run in the fourth quarter. Salmons scored seven points in the final 47.7 seconds, hitting a key 3-pointer.

Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah came up big after taking cortisone shots and the Bulls came away with a much-needed win on a night when it appeared they would be blown out again.

The Knicks led by as many as 17 in the first quarter thanks to a torrid start by Al Harrington, who scored 14 of his 18 points in the period.
