Recap: Golden State vs. Chicago

Oakland, CA (Sports Network) - Luol Deng scored 23 points and Carlos Boozer added 21 points and nine rebounds to lead the Chicago Bulls to a much-needed 113-95 win over the Golden State Warriors on Friday.

Nate Robinson added 20 points and seven assists and Joakim Noah finished with 16 points and 13 rebounds for the Bulls, who had dropped six of their last nine games entering the contest.

"I do know we have pride," Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said. "We've taken a hit. We've lost some guys along the way. Our guys will battle. We know that we're short-handed. But if we have the right intensity and we do it collectively, we have a chance. And we've shown it throughout the year."

Jarrett Jack scored 20 points and David Lee added 15 with eight rebounds for the Warriors, who have dropped seven of their last 11 games.

Golden State guard Stephen Curry, who averaged 22.2 points per game entering the contest, was held to just eight points on 2-of-13 shooting.

"This was an embarrassing performance by us, point blank," said Curry.

Chicago held a slim 28-27 lead after the first quarter, but outscored the Warriors 28-19 in the second to take a 56-46 lead into the break. Jimmy Butler scored all nine of his points in the frame and Nate Robinson added seven.

The Bulls exploded for 38 points in the third while holding the Warriors to just 4-of-16 shooting from the floor. Boozer and Robinson scored 11 and nine points, respectively, in the frame as the team went 13-for-21 from the floor and a perfect 3-for-3 from downtown.

Chicago's lead swelled to 36 points in the fourth, and the Warriors got no closer than 18.
