Easy win for Bulls, beating the Mavs
Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau preaches 48 minutes of effort to his team. He didn't quite get that against the Mavericks on Wednesday night, but it was much better than the last time out.
Luol Deng had 22 points and six rebounds as Chicago cruised to a 101-78 victory over the Dallas Mavericks.
Five players scored at least 11 points to help the Bulls (7-7) beat the Mavericks for the fourth straight time. Chicago recovered from a 93-92 loss to Milwaukee on Monday, in which it blew a 27-point third-quarter lead, largely due to the proficiency of its reserves.
''The bench was great,'' Thibodeau said. ''The starters got us out to a good start. We needed everybody.''
Nate Robinson had 14 points and a game-high six assists for Chicago, and fellow reserve Jimmy Butler scored a career-high 13, including 9-of-10 shooting from the free throw line.

Re: Easy win for Bulls, beating the Mavs
I was there last night. Scored some free tickets in row 3 upper level. Nate was killing it and the crowd really loves him. I get so frustrated when he commits those boneheaded TO's/fouls though. I love watching Nate argue with Thibs on the sideline during FTs. With Rose, you could tell that Thibs would advise him on plays and he would just listen and nod his head, but Nate's all "but I didn't- I swear coach-" etc. :oldlol:
