|Boozer Scores 29 as Bulls Beat Thunder
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Carlos Boozer scored 13 of his 29 points in Chicago's big third quarter and the Bulls beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 99-90 on Monday night.
Luol Deng added 19 points for Chicago, which outscored the Thunder 29-18 in the pivotal third. Derrick Rose had 11 points and nine assists, but shot 3 for 13 from the field.
Kevin Durant led the Thunder with 29 points. Russell Westbrook had 15 points and seven assists, shooting 7 for 18.
Boozer got a big free-agent deal from Chicago in the offseason, but missed the team's first 15 games with a broken right hand. This was his highest scoring game since he returned in Wednesday night's 107-78 loss to Orlando.
