No one would have ever guessed that the Chicago Bulls (32-23) were on the second night of a back-to-back on Friday night in Charlotte, as Tom Thibodeau's squad annihilated the Bobcats (13-42), outscoring them in all four quarters to win by 30 points, 105-75.
Eight Bulls players scored in double figures, and Taj Gibson led the way off the bench, scoring 17 points on 8-of-11 shooting from the floor. Carlos Boozer recorded the game's only double-double, scoring 10 points and reeling in 10 boards as well.
For Charlotte, Kemba Walker led the way with 27 points (including 4-of-6 shooting from beyond the arc). He has now scored at least 24 points in each of the Bobcats' last three games.
The Bobcats held their own on the glass, losing the rebounding battle 46-45, but were thoroughly outplayed in the end, committing twice as many turnovers as Chicago and shooting just 33 percent from the field for the game.
