Bulls suffer from Rose-Noah homecoming

CHICAGO — Kristaps Porzingis had 27 points and Carmelo Anthony added 25 to lead the Knicks to a 117-104 victory over the Bulls on Friday in the triumphant return of Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah to Chicago.

Rose, the Bulls' first-round pick in 2008, finished with 15 points and 11 assists, while Noah, a 2007 first-rounder out of Florida, had 16 points and nine rebounds. They teamed up to play a familiar two-man game late to help stifle a Chicago rally.

Both Rose and Noah received loud ovations from the United Center crowd during pregame introductions, although there were boos mixed in for Rose. The Chicago native also was booed every time he touched the ball in the first couple of minutes.

Dwyane Wade led Chicago with 35 points.

On the day the Cubs celebrated their World Series title, Rose said the biggest disappointment during his time in Chicago was not leading the Bulls to a title: "Only thing I can do about that is say I gave it my all."

Around the league: Former Gator Bradley Beal scored 20 of his 28 after halftime, and the Wizards finally gave new coach Scott Brooks his first victory with the team, 95-92 over the visiting Hawks. John Wall had six assists for Washington and is four assists shy of breaking Hall of Fame center Wes Unseld's franchise career mark. … DeMar DeRozan scored 34 as the host Raptors beat the Heat 96-87. It was a team-record fifth straight 30-plus-point game for DeRozan. Mike James had four straight in 2005. The last player to start a season with five straight with at least 30 was Michael Jordan (Nov. 1-11, 1986).
