Bulls Vs. Warriors Final Score: Bulls Fall to 1-1 In Oakland

The Chicago Bulls came out flat against the Golden State Warriors in Oakland on Monday, and they were unable to find their energy the entire night. The end result was a 99-91 win for the Warriors in a game that likely wasn't as close as the final score. The Bulls were out-scored in every quarter but the fourth -- when the game was barely in jeopardy. Chicago drops to 1-1 with the loss.

Chicago's stellar defense had no answer for the Warriors' Big Three: Monta Ellis, Stephen Curry, and David Lee each went off. Ellis led the way with 26 points on 10-of-17 shooting and also added seven assists. Lee had 22 points on 8-of-16 shooting, while Curry scored 21 on 7-of-12 shooting.

The Bulls were led by Luol Deng, who finished with 22 points and 10 rebounds on 10-of-15 shooting. Carlos Boozer was atrocious, finishing with just six points and getting bullied throughout by Lee. Derrick Rose wasn't much better: just 13 points and eight assists on 4-of-17 shooting.
