Jimmy lead the way with 40pts last night, as the Bulls beat the Lakers 118-110.
It didn’t start off easy for the Bulls. The Lakers along with ex-Bull L. Deng came to play. The young Lakers have been playing good basketball under Coach Lou Walton.
But it wasn’t enough to hand the Bulls a loss. The Bulls enjoyed a lot of good efforts in a fast-paced, wide open game practiced now by the Lakers, not so much concerned with stopping anyone from getting back to shoot quickly.
Isaiah Canaan off the bench had 17pts with a pair of fourth-quarter threes. Nikola Mirotic starting at small forward with Wade out had 15pts and a career-high 15rebs. Gibson also had 15pts with 7rebs and Lopez had 12pts and 11rebs. Rondo had 4pts, 9rebs and 12asst as the Bulls got back to ball movement with 27asst. The Bulls had a commanding 56-37 rebounding lead and shot 51.7 percent.
This was the Bulls 3rd win in four games on this Western Conference road trip, each victory over teams with winning records at the time and the one loss to a Clippers team with the NBA’s best record. 
The Bulls are 9-5 and play in Denver Tuesday and close the trip Friday in Philly.
