|Rose, Deng Lead Bulls to Rout of 76ers
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Derrick Rose and Luol Deng each scored 22 points, and the Chicago Bulls beat the Philadelphia 76ers 121-76 on Tuesday night for their eighth win in nine games.
Despite missing two big men, Chicago dominated nearly every offensive category and recorded its most lopsided win of the season.
Rose also had 12 assists for his seventh double-double, while Carlos Boozer had 16 points and 11 rebounds, and Kurt Thomas added 12 points.
Andre Iguodala scored 17 points and reserve Thaddeus Young added 12 for Philadelphia.
Chicago trailed only in the opening minute, then used a 10-0 run later in the first quarter to open its first double-digit lead. The advantage grew to 90-50 with 1:01 left in the third and 50 with less than five minutes to play.
