NBA scores: Bulls notch pair of wins over weekend

Dennis Wierzbicki-USA TODAY Sports

A pair of victories over the weekend have the Bulls building some momentum of late.

The Chicago Bulls seemingly got back on track over the weekend, beating a pair of Eastern Conference teams to improve their overall record to 11-8 this season. After beating the Detroit Pistons, 108-104 on Friday night, the Bulls returned home Saturday to knock off the New York Knicks, 93-85, in front of an excited home crowd.

Not always known for putting up huge numbers, Bulls center Joakim Noah went off in Detroit on Friday night, exploding for 30 points, 23 rebounds, six assists, two steals and two blocks. He also shot an efficient 12-of-19 from the field, proving to be a boon to both the Bulls and fantasy owners across the country.

Noah wasn't quite as dominant in the victory over New York on Saturday, but he did help to anchor an impressive defensive effort against the Carmelo Anthony-less Knicks. New York has been arguably the hottest team in the NBA so far this season, but it stumbled when forced to depend too much on the likes of J.R. Smith and Raymond Felton.
