Bulls

Thursday's Christmas day, 113-93, Bulls' victory over the Lakers, served as validation for Pau Gasol's tough decision to depart Los Angeles for Chicago this past summer via free agency.
When the Bulls decided to use the amnesty provision on Carlos Boozer, it meant more money to sign a deeper, more talented bench. And that's what the Bulls used to beat the Lakers on Christmas.
In his first game against his former club since signing with the Bulls this past offseason, Pau Gasol led Chicago with 23 points and 13 rebounds in the Bulls' Christmas day rout of the Lakers.
