Notebook: Bulls 117, Nuggets 89


Kent McDill, for NBA.com
Posted Sat Feb 22, 2014 12:02 AM - Updated Sat Feb 22, 2014 12:02 AM

THE FACT: The Bulls have won a season-high five consecutive games, their third time reaching that mark.

THE LEAD: With 22 points, D.J. Augustin led six Chicago Bulls in double figures on the way to a wire-to-wire 117-89 victory over the visiting Denver Nuggets. Rookie swingman Tony Snell had 20 points for the Bulls (29-25), who also got double-doubles from Joakim Noah and Taj Gibson. Randy Foye scored 23 points for the Nuggets (25-29), who have lost six of their last seven games.

THE FACTS II: The Bulls, who have the lowest scoring average in the league at 92 points per game, had 94 points after three quarters and reached the century mark with 9:46 left in the contest.

QUOTABLE: "All the hard work, everything I learned, I used it tonight.''
-- Tony Snell on his career-high 20 points

THE STAT: Aaron Brooks, who joined the Nuggets Friday morning after being traded to the team from the Houston Rockets, scored 17 points on 7-for-11 shooting from the field.

THE STAT II: The Bulls shot 50 percent from the field, 85 percent from the free-throw line and outrebounded the Nuggets 50-40.

THE STAT III: The Nuggets got credit for only 12 assists on 35 baskets made.

TURNING POINT: After a 9-0 second quarter Nuggets run got the difference into single digits, the Bulls went on a 13-0 run to build a 62-35 lead late in the second quarter.

INJURY UPDATE: The Bulls finally had a clean injury report prior to the game (with the exception of Derrick Rose's MCL injury) but guard Jimmy Butler suffered a rib contusion in the second quarter and left the game. Nuggets forward Darrell Arthur suffered a hip strain in the first half and did not return.

HOT: The best Bulls shooters on the night were guys not known for high percentages. Noah was 4-for-6 from the field on the way to 14 points and Kirk Hinrich was 5-for-8 for his 10.

NOT: Tim Mozgov was 3-for-12 for the Nuggets, who shot just 40 percent from the field.

QUOTABLE II: "I told him to let his instincts take over.''
-- Denver coach Brian Shaw on Aaron Brooks

GOOD MOVE: The Nuggets needed a point guard, and Brooks looks like he can take over in the absence of Ty Lawson, who remains injured. But Shaw kept the same starting lineup he had before the trade to allow Brooks some time to get acclimated.

ROOKIE WATCH: Snell played in place of the injured Butler and got his career high in scoring by making 7-for-14 shots, including three 3-pointers. Seldom used Bulls forward Erik Murphy out of Florida even got three scoreless minutes in the blowout win.

NOTABLE: Brooks scored nine points by making his first four shots in the first quarter with the Nuggets... The Bulls had 62 points at halftime, the most points they have scored in a half all season... the Bulls had their largest margin of victory and most points in regulation Friday... the Nuggets had a five-game winning streak against the Bulls going into the contest... the Bulls are 17-7 in 2014... the Bulls' bench outscored the starters 65-52... Carlos Boozer attempted his first 3-pointer of the year and missed it, and is now 1-for-13 from long range in his career... Noah got his ninth technical of the season and is third in the league.

UP NEXT: For the Bulls, Sunday @ Miami, Tuesday @ Atlanta, Wednesday vs. Golden State. For the Nuggets, Sunday vs. Sacramento, Tuesday vs. Portland, Thursday vs. Brooklyn.
