Recap

Derrick Rose collected a triple-double with 22 points, 10 rebounds and 12 assists and Loul Deng scored 28 as the Chicago Bulls took down the Memphis Grizzlies, 96-84, on Monday.

Kyle Korver came off the bench to pour in 22 points on 8-of-12 shooting for the Bulls, who won their third straight despite playing without Carlos Boozer due to a sprained ankle.

Deng scored 11 points in the first quarter as the Chicago shot out to a 26-17 lead. The Bulls would stretch it to as much as 17 points early in the second quarter when Korver caught fire, draining four 3-pointers in the frame and going 5-of-6 from the floor overall to help Chicago take a 53-42 advantage into the break.

The Bulls led by as much as 79-57 after Deng nailed a 3-pointer with 19 seconds left in the third, but the Grizzlies had one last burst in them, bridging the third and fourth quarters with an 18-5 run to pull within 84-75 with 6:50 remaining. Deng responded with another 3-pointer and Chicago regrouped, coasting to the finish.

Zach Randolph finished with 21 points and 13 rebounds for Memphis, which had its four-game home winning streak snapped.
