In a clash of arguably the two most under achieving teams the Bulls trio of stars out lasted the Houston Rockets for the victory.

24. . 100. 169. 108

With the return of Jimmy Butler and Taj Gibson to the starting lineup after missing games due to injury, the Chicago Bulls faced the Houston Rockets desperate for the home win hoping to get back on the conversation for the 8th spot in the Eastern Conference. Meanwhile the Rockets trying to hold down their own 8th seed re-introduced Michael Beasley and his many missed field goals to the NBA.

With the Rockets still completely unable to knock down shots from beyond the arc but refusing to try anything else, the Bulls managed to open up a small lead by halftime that only grew with time.

Houston tried a couple of runs, clawing back from double digit deficits, but in the end never got close. The Bulls trio sealed the deal for Chicago with Butler and Gasol getting a double-double and Rose closely behind with 17 points and 9 assists.
