The Chicago Bulls have continued their exceptional play and now lead 96-68 after three quarters against the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday night. The Bulls were hoping to bounce back from a lackluster effort recently against the Memphis Grizzlies, and they've certainly done that even without Derrick Rose.
The big offensive numbers have continued to pile up for the Bulls, who added another 29 points to their scoring total in the third quarter. Chicago is currently shooting 59 percent from the field with assists on 26 of its baskets and just four turnovers.
All five Bulls starters have already scored in double-figures, led by Carlos Boozer's 31 points and C.J. Watson's 20 points. It's been mostly starters for Chicago so far, as they've accounted for 90 of Chicago's 96 points thus far.
