Rose Scores 29 as Bulls Hold Off Lakers
CHICAGO (AP) -- Derrick Rose had 29 points and nine assists, and the Chicago Bulls held off a late rally by the Los Angeles Lakers for an 88-84 victory Friday night.

The Bulls hit eight 3-pointers, three by Rose, who made the shot a key part of his game during the offseason. Reserve swingman Kyle Korver connected on a trio of 3s and scored 13 points for Chicago, which held a 26-13 edge in bench points.

The 84 points marked a season low for the Lakers. The two-time defending NBA champions were led by Kobe Bryant's 23 points, though he shot just 9 for 23 from the floor.

It was the Bulls' first win over the Lakers in nearly four years. Los Angeles had won seven straight against Chicago since a 94-89 Bulls victory on Dec. 19, 2006, at the United Center.
