Chicago, IL (SportsNetwork.com) - Chicago Bulls guard/forward Mike Dunleavy was forced to leave Thursday night's game against the Houston Rockets after suffering a cut above his right eye.
With 7:54 left in the second quarter, Houston's Chandler Parsons drove into the lane and his elbow collided with Dunleavy's face. Dunleavy, who held his ground to take the offensive foul, was forced off the court due to excessive bleeding.
Dunleavy, who received 10 stitches to close the wound, returned to the court to start the third quarter and came out on fire. He scored 10 points during Chicago's 20-2 run that expanded its lead to 70-44 midway through the period.
Dunleavy scored 18 of his 21 points in the third quarter and boosted the Bulls to a 111-87 win.
