|Boozer Leads Bulls Past Nets
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Carlos Boozer scored 20 points and grabbed 15 rebounds, and the Chicago Bulls won for the 12th time in 14 games, pulling away late to beat the New Jersey Nets 90-81 on Friday afternoon.
Luol Deng and Derrick Rose scored 19 apiece, and the Bulls made enough shots down the stretch after struggling from the field for much of the game.
Brook Lopez led New Jersey with 19 points. Travis Outlaw and Stephen Graham each scored 16, but the Nets dropped their fourth straight.
At least they didn't get blown out this time.
Outscored by a combined 51 points over the previous three games, the Nets hung in against the Central division leaders.
