Chicago, IL (SportsNetwork.com) - D.J. Augustin had 12 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter and the Chicago Bulls rallied past the Detroit Pistons, 106-98, on Friday night.

Joakim Noah tallied six points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists, Carlos Boozer supplied 18 points and seven boards and Taj Gibson netted 11 of his 17 points in the final frame for Chicago, which locked up home-court advantage in their first round playoff series.
