26 Points From Derrick Rose Spark Bulls Past Mavericks, 82-77

Chicago, IL (Sports Network) – Derrick Rose scored a game-high 26 points to go along with nine assists as the Chicago Bulls edged the Dallas Mavericks, 82-77, at the United Center.

Kurt Thomas added nine points and 11 rebounds, while Luol Deng grabbed 12 rebounds with seven points for the Bulls, who played their third straight contest without forward Carlos Boozer.

Boozer has missed the team’s last three games as he recovers from a sprained left ankle he suffered in Chicago’s 99-96 victory over Miami on Saturday.

Dirk Nowitzki paced the Mavericks with 19 points, while Tyson Chandler, DeShawn Stevenson and Jason Terry each contributed 12 points. The Mavericks have lost seven of eight dating back to January 6.
