Bulls Rally Past Pistons

DeMar DeRozan scored 16 of his 36 points in the fourth quarter and the Chicago Bulls beat the Detroit Pistons 114-108 on Wednesday night to snap a five-game losing streak.


Zach LeVine added 25 points for the Bulls, and Nikola Vucevic had 21 points. They won despite only hitting three 3-pointers.


Cade Cunningham had 22 points for the Pistons, but no one else scored more than 12.

Detroit had won three straight.


The Pistons led 99-92 with 8:59 left before DeRozan and Zach LeVine took over.


DeRozan's layup gave the Bulls a 101-99 lead with 5:44 left and, after a Detroit miss, LeVine made two free throws to finish an 11-0 run. Two more baskets from DeRozan made it 109-101, and the Pistons couldn't hit enough shots down the stretch.


Neither team led by more than eight points in the first three quarters, but Hamadou Diallo's put-back dunk gave the Pistons a 91-84 advantage going into the fourth.


The Bulls were 31-35 from the free-throw line, including 11-13 in the fourth quarter. 


The Bulls host Cleveland on Saturday night.
