=== Chicago Bulls Team Report – December 2 ===

(Sports Network) – The Chicago Bulls registered a 92-84 win over the Los
Angeles Lakers at the United Center on Wednesday night.

Eddy Curry tallied 18 points and 10 rebounds to pace the Bulls, while Luol
Deng added 18 points. Kirk Hinrich and Ben Gordon chipped in 17 points each
and Tyson Chandler tacked on 18 rebounds and 10 points.

Despite shooting just 39.5 percent from the field, the Bulls were able to
survive thanks to a 51-37 rebounding advantage. Chicago was particularly
impressive on the offensive boards with 16 to just six for the Lakers.

It didn’t hurt that the Bulls hit 19-of-23 shots (.823) from the free throw
line. Chicago limited its miscues to just 13 in the victory.

Chicago activated G Frank Williams before the game and he entered in the
second quarter for his first action of the season.

The Bulls, who are 2-10 on the year, improved to 1-3 at the United Center this
season. Chicago will remain at home to host the Miami Heat on Friday night.
