Recap

Carlos Boozer had 17 points and 11 rebounds while Ronnie Brewer also scored 17 as the Chicago Bulls rolled to a dominant 104-64 victory over the visiting Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday.

Derrick Rose added 16 points as Chicago won its third straight game while playing at home for the first time.

Memphis suffered a potentially devastating blow when star forward Zach Randolph injured his right knee late in the first quarter. Randolph was hurt when teammate O.J. Mayo crashed into his knee after a driving shot.

Without Randolph, the Grizzlies suffered through a humiliating contest in which they shot just 31.0 percent from the field. Memphis trailed 54-28 at halftime and its deficit was 40 points entering the final quarter.

Boozer had 15 points and 11 rebounds in an impressive first half. Chicago outrebounded the Grizzlies 55-40 and led by as many as 46 points. Chicago’s franchise record for largest margin of victory is 56 against the Portland Trail Blazers on Feb. 20, 1976.

Sam Young and Josh Davis scored 10 points apiece for Memphis.

Brewer drew the start when Richard Hamilton was scratched prior to the game with a groin injury.
