Rose returns; Bulls holds off Celtics

Derrick Rose scored 12 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter, helping the Chicago Bulls fend off a fourth quarter rally by the Boston Celtics and hold on for an 88-79 win.

The Bulls led by as many as 20 points in the third quarter, but the C’s fought back, cutting Chicago’s edge to one with 10 minutes remaining in the game, before the defending MVP took over.

Rose showed no effects of a turf toe injury that forced him to sit out his last game, leading a balanced Chicago attack late to finish with seven assists and four rebounds along with his game-high 25 points.

Luol Deng and Joakim Noah chipped in with double-doubles in the fourth straight victory for the Bulls. Rajon Rondo finished with 14 points and 11 assists for the C’s, who have now dropped three straight games for the second time this season.
