The Chicago Bulls won impressively with a 111-87 win over the Houston Rockets Thursday night behind the 3 point shooting of Mike Dunleavy, who was four of six and Kirk Hinrich, who was five of six from the 3 point arc.

As they were able to shake their defenders, they became opened and drain three pointer after three pointer giving the Bulls an increasing lead throughout the entire game.

Althought Dunleavy left the game in the second quarter with a bloody cut that seemed to be above his left eye, it did not have any affect on his shooting sight. He returned and scored 18 of his 21 points in the third quarter.

The Bulls also got solid shooting from Carlos Boozer who scored 18 points and also from D.J. Augustine and Joakim Noah who each scored 13 points.

Noah also played solid defense and was one assist away from claiming a triple double.
