Top Bulls performer: Carlos Boozer, 20 points, 13 rebounds, 3 assists
After racing out to a 3-0 record, the Bulls lapse into a letdown by losing to L.A.'s lesser team at the United Center. To add insult to injury, the Clippers took down the Bulls with only a small contribution from star Blake Griffin, who finished with only four points on 2-for-10 shooting. L.A. guard Eric Gordon led all scorers with 25 points. Derrick Rose suffered his first stinker of a game after only hitting seven of 22 shots, including going 0-for-4 from 3-point land.
