Bulls face Nuggets with eye on top spot in East

Short on rotation players but not on resolve, the streaking Chicago Bulls shook off an 11-point third-quarter deficit to defeat the host Brooklyn Nets on Saturday night.

"Says a lot about our team, how resilient, ow we approach challenges," Chicago's DeMar DeRozan said after the 111-107 victory. "We don't shy away from them. We accept them. You want to be the best, you gotta beat the best."

Angling for the top record in the Eastern Conference, the Bulls will try to stretch their winning streak to four games on Monday as they host the Denver Nuggets, a contender in the West that is looking to get in track.
