Chicago Bulls beat LA Lakers for the first time since 2016

Chicago Bulls beat LA Lakers 121-103 to end an eight game losing streak in the NBA .

DeMar DeRozan and Lonzo Ball both hit season-high totals as the Bulls cruised past the Lakers for the first time in nine matches.

DeRozan scored 38 points while Ball added 27 in a comfortable 121-103 win at the Staples Center.

It was the first time the Bulls had beaten their Californian opponents since November 2016.

The Lakers are still without LeBron James who missed his seventh game in a row because of an abdominal strain.

It was a second big performance in a row from DeRozan who scored 35 points in Sunday’s 100-90 win over the Los Angeles Clippers, while former Lakers player Ball also added eight assists and seven rebounds.

Talen Horton-Tucker scored a career-high 28 points and Russell Westbrook notched 25 points, eight assists and six rebounds for the Lakers.

Anthony Davis had 20 points and six rebounds before committing his second technical foul with two minutes and 20 seconds left in the third quarter, and was ejected for only the second time in his career.
