Bulls top Suns
Chicago, IL (SportsNetwork.com) - Joakim Noah scored 14 points to go with 16 rebounds and six assists as the shorthanded Chicago Bulls took a 92-87 win over the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday.
The Bulls, who were without the services of starting power forward Carlos Boozer (sore right knee), dealt two-time All-Star Luol Deng to the Cleveland Cavaliers early Tuesday morning.
The Bulls received Andrew Bynum, who was promptly waived, along with a first round pick and a pair of second rounders for the third-longest tenured player in franchise history.
Taj Gibson scored a team-high 19 points and pulled down 10 boards filling in for Boozer. Jimmy Butler and D.J. Augustin added 13 points apiece, with Augustin also dishing out nine assists for Chicago, winners in three straight.
Goran Dragic scored a game-high 21 points and Gerald Green added 15 on 3- for-10 shooting from 3-pount range. Channing Frye and Miles Plumlee added 11 points and seven rebounds apiece for the Suns, who have dropped two of their last three.
