Notebook: Bulls 94, Kings 87


Kent McDill, for NBA.com
Posted Sat Mar 15, 2014 11:53 PM - Updated Sat Mar 15, 2014 11:53 PM

THE FACT: Joakim Noah, once considered a severe offensive liability, has led the Bulls in scoring nine times this season.

THE LEAD: After a tight game for 46 minutes, the host Chicago Bulls finally pulled away to record a 94-87 victory over the Sacramento Kings Saturday.

Noah led the Bulls (37-29) with 23 points, and also had 11 rebounds, eight assists and five blocked shots. Taj Gibson came off the bench to score 19 points for the Bulls. Isaiah Thomas led the Kings (23-43) with 26 points and DeMarcus Cousins had 25 points and 14 rebounds.

QUOTABLE: "His rebounding, his defense, his playmaking -- you can see with the scoring component he's gotten better and better. All of that is critical for us."
-- Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau

THE STAT: The Kings had 37 free-throw attempts but only made 23 (62 percent). The Bulls were 26-for-33 from the line. The Kings were also 2-for-14 from 3-point range; the Bulls were 6-for-20. No King taking more than five shots managed to shoot 50 percent from the field.

TURNING POINT: Sacramento last tied the game at 72 with 6:30 left, but Mike Dunleavy's 3-pointer gave the Bulls the lead for good at 75-72. The Kings went from the 5:49 mark of the fourth quarter to the 1:47 mark without a basket.

QUOTABLE II: "I'm really proud of our team tonight. I like how we competed and gave ourselves a chance to win. We were on the road against a very good team so that is all I can ask from the guys."
-- Sacramento coach Michael Malone

INJURY UPDATE: After getting gashed above the eye Thursday against Houston, Dunleavy played with a small bandage over the cut.

HOT: Noah was 9-for-15 from the field and had 17 points at halftime. He would have had a triple-double but Dunleavy missed three layups on passes from Noah.

NOT: Ben McLemore of the Kings was 3-for-12, 0-for-7 on 3-pointers. Jimmy Butler was 1-for-11 from the field for the Bulls.

QUOTABLE III: "I'm so excited to be in this position right now."
--Bulls center Joakim Noah

GOOD MOVE: Thibodeau handled the foul trouble for guards Kirk Hinrich and D.J. Augustin well, and Hinrich played most of the fourth quarter with four fouls and Augustin sat with five.

ROOKIE WATCH: Bulls forward Tony Snell played only five minutes, and had only one missed 3-pointer. Ben McLemore played 35 minutes and finished with six points, with one assist, one steal and six rebounds. Ray McCallum played 10 minutes and had one point.

NOTABLE: For the first time this season, the Bulls used the same starting lineup for a 10th consecutive game... Three years after the "MVP" chant worked in favor of Bulls guard Derrick Rose, the chant is now being heard at the United Center for center Noah... New Bulls guard Jimmer Fredette, released by the Kings a couple of weeks ago, did not get into the game against his former team... The Bulls' bench outscored Sacramento's bench 31-12... Thomas was the only King to make a 3-pointer for Sacramento... The Kings are now 2-4 on their seven-game road trip with a visit to Minnesota Sunday. ...Reggie Evans returned to the starting lineup for the Kings Saturday.l Malone said the Kings will platoon the power forward position between Evans and Derrick Williams the rest of the season. Williams is the better scorer, Evans the better rebounder.

UP NEXT: For the Bulls, Monday vs. Oklahoma City, Wednesday @ Philadelphia, Friday @ Indiana. For the Kings, @ Minnesota Sunday, vs. Washington Tuesday, vs. San Antonio Friday.
