The Chicago Bulls and the Charlotte Bobcats were in a tight game the last time they saw each other, with the Bulls ending up edging out the 89-87 win. The Bulls didn't shoot particularly well from the field in the game, but they were able to make 11 of their 23 three-pointers.
Bulls center Joakim Noah had 11 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists and was very close to notching yet another triple-double. Point guard D.J. Augustin, starting in place of injured star Derrick Rose, was able to make six three-pointers in the game and ended up with a team-high 28 points, 15 of which were scored in the fourth quarter alone. Taj Gibson came off of the bench for Chicago to contribute 13 points and seven rebounds.
Al Jefferson did his best all game to keep the Bobcats in it and ended up with a game-high 32 points on 15-of-26 shooting and also grabbed 13 rebounds in the loss. Gerald Henderson, who had 11 points and six rebounds in the game, was the only other Charlotte starter to score in double figures. Backup point guard Jannero Pargo came off the bench to pitch in with 15 points.
The game may have been back in late-January, but it was the third time in three meetings that the Bulls beat the Bobcats, so they should be favorites again in their fourth and final matchup on Wednesday.
