Recap: Chicago vs. Utah

Chicago, IL (SportsNetwork.com) - Luol Deng filled the stat sheet with 19 points, 11 rebounds, nine assists and five steals as the Chicago Bulls routed the Utah Jazz, 97-73, on Friday.

Carlos Boozer added 18 points and 10 boards, while Derrick Rose chipped in 12 points and five assists for Chicago, which had lost three of its first four tilts to begin the campaign. Joakim Noah registered 14 points and eight rebounds in the victory.

"I thought there was a lot of unselfish play, guys making the extra pass," Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau said.

Gordon Hayward tallied 15 points, six rebounds and five helpers for the Jazz, who are the only remaining winless team in the NBA. Derrick Favors netted 10 points to go with nine boards in defeat.

"We can't feel sorry for ourselves, we just got to keep fighting," Jazz head coach Tyrone Corbin said.

The Jazz shot just 29.4 percent (25-of-85) from the floor.

Chicago had already held a comfortable 53-42 cushion early in the third before an elongated 23-8 burst put the game out of reach. Boozer had 11 points during the surge, which Taj Gibson capped with a pair of free throws to make it 76-50 late in the third.

The Bulls took a 78-56 advantage into the fourth, where the hosts cruised until the final horn.

Earlier, Deng, Boozer and Rose all netted seven points apiece in the opening frame as the hosts led 30-18 after a quarter of play.

The Jazz never got within less than nine in the second as Chicago entered the break with a 51-40 advantage.
