(CBS) In a battle of two of the NBA’s best centers last night, Joakim Noah’s Bulls got the best of Dwight Howard’s Rockets, 111-87, at the United Center.

Noah was again at his all-around best, scoring 13 points, hauling in 10 rebounds and dishing out nine assists to just miss out on his fourth triple-double of the season. Howard had 12 points and 10 rebounds but also struggled with seven turnovers.

Noah stopped short of saying he and Howard had a close relationship, but he said they shared a mutual respect from playing each other over the years. Below is a photo of one of their earlier matchups.

They’ve really grown up, haven’t they?
