Carlos Boozer had 28 points and 14 rebounds to help the Chicago Bulls outlast the Phoenix Suns 112-106 in overtime Wednesday night.
Boozer, who scored 31 against Phoenix in the previous meeting last season, was a force at power forward again. He made 11 of 20 shots and had his way inside as the Bulls scored 50 points in the paint. Luol Deng added 21 points and center Joakim Noah had 21 points and 12 rebounds.
Chicago scored six points on putbacks in a 10-0 run that gave the Bulls a 79-61 lead in the third quarter. But the Suns fought back in the fourth by being active on the offensive boards. Luis Scola had 24 points and 14 rebounds, while Sebastian Telfair scored 17 off the bench.
Marcin Gortat banked in a hook shot to cut Chicago's lead to 91-88, and Shannon Brown made it 91-90 on a driving layup with 4:22 to play in the fourth.
Telfair's 3-pointer tied it at 93 with 3 minutes left, but the Bulls hit four of six free throws over the next 2 minutes to go up 99-95. Brown...

It has been a while since we heard about Chicago Bulls' Derrick Rose and his road to recovery after suffering a horrific left knee injury during last season's playoffs. He has been documenting his recovery through some adidas ads and now it seems he has begun to cut on his surgically repaired knee which should be seen as a huge step in the right direction for him and the...
Nate Robinson is short (for the NBA) but still gets most of his publicity for big dunks above the rim. On Wednesday night, however, it was some lower-altitude moves that have fans marveling at Robinson’s skills once again. With under three minutes left in the Bulls’ game against the Suns, Robinson received a pass near the left baseline and pump faked. Sebastian Telfair, who was...
PHOENIX – Chicago's Carlos Boozer had 28 points while Luol Deng and Joakim Noah added 21 each as the Bulls blew an 18-point lead in the third quarter but recovered to score on their first five possessions of overtime to beat the Phoenix Suns 112-106 Wednesday night. Luis Scola had 24 points and 13 rebounds before fouling out early in overtime and Sebastian Telfair added 17...
We have seen numerous dribbles between defenders, but it is not that often that we see an entire person go under a defender’s legs. On Wednesday night when the Bulls took on the Suns Nate Robinson used his 5′ 9″ height to his advantage. Nate made a great ball fake which Sebastian Telfair fell for, Telfair jumped to block the shots, but Nate hit the brakes and Telfair flew...
With the diverse array of remarkable athletes currently playing in the NBA, it’s an extremely common occurrence to see or hear about players rising up over the defense to finish a dunk or a layup. Sometimes, a guy will even leap right over a defender’s head, as LeBron James did to John Lucas III just last season. Just how frequently, though, do you catch a ball handler ducking...
PHOENIX -- After blowing an 18-point, third-quarter lead and being forced to overtime by the scrappy reserves of the Phoenix Suns, Chicago's veterans knew that the tone for this five-game road trip might be set by the way the Bulls performed in overtime here Friday night. Luol Deng, Richard Hamilton and Joakim Noah combined to erase a dismal fourth quarter by combining to score...
The Celtics were cold in the 4th quarter. If they weren’t dunking the ball, that ball wasn’t going through the hoop.
Lucky for the Celtics, pulled off two plays that got them the high-percentage shots they needed at crucial times. Actually… it was the same play… just run on opposite sides of the floor.
Here’s the first one:
The play really happens at the :13 mark with...
