Recap

Derrick Rose had 22 points and 12 assists and Luol Deng also scored 22 points as the Chicago Bulls embarrassed the visiting Philadelphia 76ers, 121-76, on Tuesday.

Carlos Boozer chipped in 16 points and 11 rebounds and Kurt Thomas - starting for the injured Taj Gibson - collected 12 and eight for the Bulls, who shot 65 percent (49-of-76) from the field and 17-of-21 from the free throw line in a dominating effort. Chicago has won eight of nine.

Chicago took complete control right from the start, opening a 33-19 lead after one quarter and taking a 61-43 lead into the half. The Bulls really opened it up in the third quarter, holding Philadelphia to 11 points in the frame and using a 17-0 burst to stretch the lead to 90-50.

The Bulls pulled their starters for the fourth quarter and still continued to expand the lead as the Sixers managed to convert only five baskets in the first nine minutes and went quietly.

Andre Iguodala scored 17 points for Philadelphia, which had won eight of its last 11 games. It has to face Boston on Wednesday and is two games into an eight-game road trip that will take it through to the new year and includes a western swing through Denver, Phoenix and the Los Angeles Lakers.
