The Chicago Bulls are now 34-37 on the season after losing 124-113 to the Boston Celtics on Saturday, March 23, at the United Center. 

The Bulls were led by forward DeMar DeRozan, who scored a game-high 28 points while going 12 of 19 from the field. 

According to Bulls PR, Chicago had seven players score in double-figures. The Bulls have had all five starters scored 10-plus points in back-to-back games (3/21-3/23). 

The Bulls only had seven turnovers during the contest, which marks Chicago’s 21st game this season with less than 10 turnovers. This total is tied for second in the NBA this season in such games recorded, Bulls PR added. 

The Celtics went on an 11-4 run between 3:39 in the fourth quarter to 1:29 remaining in regulation to establish their largest lead of the game of 13 (111-124).
