(WSCR) – The Golden State Warriors have always struggled at the United Center and Thursday was no exception. All five of the Bulls’ starters scored into the double digits, leading the Bulls to a 120-90 victory.

CHICAGO (AP) — Luol Deng scored 26 points, Derrick Rose had 22 and the Chicago Bulls raced to a 30-point lead in the first half en route to a 120-90 romp over the weary Golden State Warriors on Thursday night.

Rose added 13 assists for his third double-double of the season. He finished one assist shy of his career best, which he’s increased twice already this season. Rose is averaging 9.6 assists per game, 3.3 better than he averaged in either of his first two NBA seasons.

Monta Ellis had 24 points to lead the Warriors, who pulled out a 122-117 victory in New York on Wednesday night. Ellis entered second in the NBA in scoring at 27.1 points per game.

Stephen Curry added 17 points for Golden State.
