Joakim Noah had 17 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists to help the Bulls beat the Boston Celtics 94-82 on Thursday night.
Carlos Boozer added 16 points, Luol Deng 14, Taj Gibson 12, Mike Dunleavy 11 and Jimmy Butler 10 as the balanced Bulls snapped a two-game skid at home. They have two remaining on a four-game homestand.
Noah had nine assists early in the fourth quarter, but couldn't get another and fell just short of a triple-double. Butler missed a jumper with 8 seconds left, Noah's last chance at reaching 10 assists.
The Bulls (13-18) passed the Celtics (13-19) for eighth place in the Eastern Conference. The top eight teams make the playoffs.
Jordan Crawford led the Celtics, who have lost two straight, with 22 points.
