Boozer helps Bulls beat Suns
PHOENIX (AP) — Carlos Boozer’s latest big game against Phoenix came in handy when the Chicago Bulls blew an 18-point lead.
Boozer had 28 points and 14 rebounds, and the Bulls scored the first eight points in overtime to outlast the Suns 112-106 on Wednesday night.
Boozer, who scored 31 against Phoenix in the previous meeting last season, was a force at power forward again. He made 11 of 20 shots and had his way inside as the Bulls piled up 50 points in the paint. Luol Deng added 21 points and center Joakim Noah had 21 points and 12 rebounds.
“I just played off my teammates,” Boozer said. “Rip (Hamilton) got me going in transition, Kirk (Hinrich) got me going with pocket passes.”
