The Chicago Bulls drubbed the Golden State Warriors 103-83 on Wednesday night behind a miraculous defensive effort that saw the Warriors shoot just 36 percent from the field and 24 percent from three. Wednesday marked just the seventh time all season that the Warriors scored fewer than 90 points in a single outing. 

The Bulls (31-26) have now won eight of their last 10 while the Warriors (35-23) saw their four-game winning streak come to an end with the loss. 

Chicago's second-ranked defense limited Stephen Curry to a paltry five points, five assists and five turnovers while no Warriors starter managed to score in double figures. Bulls point guard Kirk Hinrich played tremendous defense on Curry all night long and held the All-Star to 20 percent shooting on 10 attempts. 

After a sluggish first quarter that saw the Warriors outscore the Bulls by three, Chicago went on an absolute tear, dropping 35 points in the second quarter while limiting Golden State to 21. 

From there on out it was smooth sailing for the Bulls, who outscored the Warriors by nine in the second half and cruised to victory on the second night of a back-to-back. 

Taj Gibson led the Bulls with a game-high 21 points on 7-of-13 shooting off the bench while Carlos Boozer compiled a double-double consisting of 15 points and 13 rebounds. 

Joakim Noah was his usual, electric self on both ends of the floor and put together the night's most complete stat line by racking up eight points, 17 rebounds, seven assists, a steal and a block in 33 minutes. 

Next up for the Bulls is a matchup with the Dallas Mavericks on Friday while the Warriors are slated to travel to the Big Apple for a game with the New York Knicks after a night off on Thursday.
