BULLS 93 BLAZERS 88 F..."SEE RED" survives RIP City and BLAZER Mania as they hit the Winner's Circle after four days off!..."WEST SIDE Story Report" as the BULLS get a much-needed "W" on Circus Trip 2K15!

The Chicago Bulls move to a cool and calm 9-4 as they hold on late versus a feisty Damian Lillard led Portland Trailblazers Bunch running on youth and enthusiasm and two lead guards. Chicago was up 48-39 at the break and just could shake the Blazers in the 2nd half.

Give Rip City credit they were also down by 8 after the 3rd 71-63 but rallied in the 4th. Portland tied the game up at 80-80 with just over 4 minutes to go. The Bulls rallied to lead late led by Jimmy Butler (22 pts 8-8 FT), Pau Gasol (12 pts 14 rebs), Nikola Mirotic (13 pts 8 rebs) and Derrick Rose adding 17 points with six helpers.

It was Joakim Noah's block on a potential-tying Money Ball from Blazers guard C.J. McCollum with just under two seconds remaining that preserved the Bulls win 93-88. Lillard led the Blazers Attack with 19 points and ten boards as he dropped eight dimes. It was the Bulls 16 for 19 from the stripe that put them in the Winner's Circle and some defensive "Stops" and imagine that without Coach Thibs!

"See Red" moves to 9-4 while the Blazers fall to 6-10...
