Notebook: Bulls 111, Rockets 87


Kent McDill, for NBA.com
Posted Thu Mar 13, 2014 11:08 PM - Updated Thu Mar 13, 2014 11:08 PM

THE FACT: The Bulls have not lost two consecutive games since Feb. 1-3 at New Orleans and Sacramento.

THE LEAD: After a competitive first half, the host Chicago Bulls took over in the third quarter on the way to a surprisingly easy 111-87 victory over the Houston Rockets Thursday night.

Mike Dunleavy, who suffered a facial laceration in the second quarter, scored 18 of his game-high 21 points in the third quarter for the Bulls (36-29). All five starters and backup point guard D.J. Augustin reached double figures in scoring for the Bulls. Jeremy Lin had 21 points off the bench for the Rockets (44-21), who have lost two straight after winning 15 of 17.

In the duel between two of the best centers in the league, Bulls center Joakim Noah finished one assist shy of his seventh career triple-double and fourth this season, with 13 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists. Dwight Howard of the Rockets had 12 points, 10 rebounds, one assist and seven turnovers.

QUOTABLE: "In every aspect of the game, they kicked our [butts]."
-- Houston coach Kevin McHale

THE STAT: The Bulls set two season highs with 14 3-pointers and 35 assists (on 43 baskets). The Bulls were 14-for-24 from 3-point range, 58 percent.

TURNING POINT: After leading by eight points at halftime, 50-42, the Bulls scored the first 16 points of the second half to go ahead 66-42.

INJURY UPDATE: Dunleavy took a hard shot to the face from Chandler Parsons, who was called for a charge, and Dunleavy left the game with some heavy bleeding from above his right eye. He was scoreless in the first half on just two shots. After taking some stitches, he was 7-for-11 from the field with three 3-pointers in the third quarter. The Houston Rockets tweeted "What have we learned tonight? Don't make Mike Dunleavy bleed from the face."

HOT: Other than Dunleavy, Kirk Hinrich was 7-for-12 from the field.

NOT: The Rockets were 5-for-26 from 3-point range and James Harden was 2 for-7 from the field for eight points. He only went to the free-throw line four times, making three. Parsons went 1-for-11 from the field for Houston.

QUOTABLE II: "We kind of ran into a buzz saw against San Antonio [Tuesday] and we weren't quite ready. We just wanted to make sure we were ready coming out tonight."
-- Bulls guard Kirk Hinrich

GOOD MOVE: With 3:08 left in the game and Noah needing one more free throw for his triple-double, Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau took Noah out of the game and brought in Nazr Mohammed.

BAD MOVE: Other than waking up Dunleavy, the Rockets made no response to what the Bulls were doing in the third quarter. They were 6-for-14 from the field with nine turnovers in the quarter.

INSIDE THE ARENA: After the opposing team's starting lineup is introduced, the Bulls have a video presentation of a starter of key bench player saying "Time to turn off the lights. Five, four, three, two, one" and the lights go out for the introduction of the Bulls' starting lineup. On Thursday, the player used for the announcement was new guard Jimmer Fredette, who was picked up from the Kings after being bought out.

ROOKIE WATCH: When Dunleavy left the game, Tony Snell of the Bulls was called upon to play extended minutes. He finished with one basket in 10 minutes of play.

NOTABLE: After needing stitches from a first half charge he took from Parsons, Dunleavy took another charge from Harden on Houston's second play of the third quarter... Playing before his hometown crowd for the first time as a pro, Chicago native Patrick Beverley of the Rockets scored six points in 26 minutes... Only two Western Conference teams have beaten the Bulls twice this season -- the Los Angeles Clippers and the New Orleans Pelicans... the Rockets have lost two straight games for the first tie since Jan. 24-25 (Memphis back-to-back, home and away)... Former Bull Omer Asik had six points and four rebounds in 19 minutes of action.

UP NEXT: For the Bulls, Saturday vs. Sacramento, Monday vs. Oklahoma City, Wednesday @ Philadelphia. For the Rockets, Sunday @ Miami, Monday vs. Utah, Thursday vs. Minnesota.
