The Bulls were coming off two straight bad losses when they took the floor in Chicago. Joakim Noah and Carlos Boozer made sure that streak stayed put at two.
The home team's All-Star center went for his third career triple-double. He tallied a game-high 23 points, to go along with 21 rebounds and 11 blocked shots. He played just about as well as you can in this league.
Noah's frontcourt-mate, Boozer was also dominant in the paint. He earned 21 points, going 11-of-12 from the line, and 12 rebounds.
The 76ers carried a six-game losing streak into this game, and not even 22 points from Jrue Holiday could halt the free-fall.
The win puts the Bulls at 33-25, just a game behind the Brooklyn Nets for the No. 5 spot in the Eastern Conference. The 76ers fell to 22-34, and are six games behind the Milwaukee Bucks for the final playoff spot.
