Deng, Boozer lift Bulls to 97-73 win over Jazz

(Continued)

Gordon Hayward led the Jazz with 15 points, while Derrick Favors and Alec Burks had 10 points apiece, and Rudy Gobert grabbed 12 rebounds.

”(We’re) frustrated, frustrated,” Hayward said. “(We’ve) got to find some way to get the job done. We just got to get through this real rough patch we’re going through. If you can’t score the basketball, it just puts too much pressure on your defense.”

Chicago jumped out to a quick 7-2 lead, backed by five points from Rose, but the Jazz got back to 9-7, the closest they would get in the game.

Chicago then went on a 21-11 streak to close the first quarter ahead 30-18.

The Bulls outshot the Jazz 72.2 percent (13 of 18) to 33.3 percent (7 of 21) in the opening quarter.

”I thought the first quarter was terrific and that set the tone for the game,” Thibodeau said. “Our starters made sure that the group functioned well together and that was a big plus for us.”

Utah never got closer than eight points the rest of the way, shooting a 27.7 percent (13 of 47) in the first half. Chicago made 60.6 percent (20 of 33) of its shots in the first half and led 51-40 at intermission.

Things didn’t get much better for the Jazz in the second half. Before the game, Corbin said fatigue had been an issue with his young team thus far, and that showed once again in the final two quarters.

Even with the win, Thibodeau was not completely happy with the game, particularly turnovers. Chicago coughed up the ball 21 times, leading to 13 Utah points.

”We still have a lot of questions we have to (answer),” Thibodeau said. “One game doesn’t mean everything is straightened out. We have to take a hard look at ourselves and make the necessary corrections.”

Added Rose, “We’re just trying to iron out the wrinkles and I think we’re still a good team.”

  • LumberKings score eight late in 11-3 win

    First, it was an opossum that led to the Clinton LumberKings to victory this week. On Friday, it may have been the rain.
    Clinton (46-62) scored eight runs in a 11-3 win over the Burlington Bees (57-52) following a rain delay that halted the game for 70 minutes.
    The rain delay did not help the Bees, as Burlington committed four errors in the final two innings leading to the eight runs that the LumberKings tallied. All eight runs were unearned.
    Brett Thomas led off the ninth inning on an Erick Salcedo error, then Isaiah Yates hit a single to advance Thomas. Andy Peterson hit a sacrifice fly that advanced Thomas to third base with one out.
    Bees second baseman then booted an Aaron Barbosa ground ball that scored Thomas and sent Yates to third and Barbosa to second base.
    Yates and Barbosa scored on a Jack Reinheimer single to left field; Chantz Mack then brought in Reinheimer on a scorching double that sailed to the right field wall at Community Field.

  • LumberKings get first win in a week

    Bring out the rally...opossum?

    After a delay that involved the opossum making itself at home at Modern Woodmen Park, the LumberKings (14-24, 44-62) found a new rally animal to drive its first win in a week. It took a ninth inning foul out sacrifice fly by left fielder Chantz Mack to defeat the hometown Quad Cities River Bandits 6-5.

    The win snapped a six game losing streak for Clinton and a four game winning streak for Quad Cities.
