Ben Gordon scored a season-high 37 points to lead the short-handed Chicago Bulls to a 116-99 win over the Denver Nuggets last night.

Luol Deng scored 22 points and grabbed 12 rebounds, and Tyrus Thomas added 21 and 12 to give the Bulls their second straight win since dealing four players to the Sacramento Kings on Thursday.

Chauncey Billups scored 25 to lead Denver, which had its three-game winning streak stopped. Nene added 19, but only grabbed three rebounds. The Bulls, with only four big men, outrebounded the Nuggets 45-36 and made 31 of 34 from the foul line.

The Bulls only dressed eight players after making three trades before the deadline, and guard Lindsey Hunter didn't get in until the last 1:07 of the game.
