LOS ANGELES (AP) — Derrick Rose scored 32 points and the Chicago Bulls beat the Clippers 106-88 on Wednesday night for their sixth straight victory, snapping Los Angeles’ nine-game home winning streak.

The Bulls never trailed as they began a five-game road trip with their 23rd victory in 29 games — a stretch that began one game after Carlos Boozer returned to the lineup from a broken right hand. Luol Deng scored 26 points and Boozer added 16 points and 10 rebounds.

The Bulls’ 34-14 start is their best since 1997-98, when they had the same record after 48 games en route to their sixth NBA title in an eight-year span. They are tied with Miami for the second-best record in the Eastern Conference, three games behind Boston. Ten of their wins have been decided by five points or fewer.
