ABOUT THE BULLS: Chicago is still thriving without Derrick Rose, who has not yet been cleared for full contact. That will be the next step for the Bulls star as he recovers from off-season surgery on the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. The Bulls have won three straight games since melting down in a New Year's Eve matinee home loss to Charlotte. They scored a season-high point total in a 118-92 rout of Cleveland on Monday as Carlos Boozer posted his fifth straight double-double (24 points and 11 rebounds in 30 minutes). The Bulls hit 10 of 14 three-pointers against the Cavaliers.
