Bulls Bounce Bobcats

The Chicago Bulls are 3-1 under interim coach Jim Boylan after turning a 12-point, third-quarter deficit into a 109-97 win at Charlotte.

Ben Gordon scored 22 points, including a huge three-pointer after the Bobcats cut the Bulls' 10-point lead to five midway through the fourth quarter. Luol Deng finished with 21 points and 13 rebounds while helping the Bulls score 48 points in the paint.

Rookie Joakim Noah played the entire fourth quarter and contributed a career-high 17 points and six rebounds. Joe Smith added 16 points, much of it coming during Chicago's third-quarter comeback.

The Bobcats were led by Jason Richardson's 28 points.
