    LOS ANGELES — DeMar DeRozan scored 33 points and Zach LaVine added 29 to help the Chicago Bulls beat the Los Angeles Clippers, 100-90, on Sunday night (Monday, Manila time), ending the Clippers' seven-game winning streak.

    Lonzo Ball had 10 points for the Bulls, who used generous amounts of Los Angeles-area talent to earn the victory. DeRozan is a LA native who went to USC, while LaVine and Ball attended UCLA.

    Paul George scored 27 points and had 11 rebounds for the Clippers, while Eric Bledsoe added 21 points. Los Angeles lost for the first time since Oct. 29 at Portland.

    George and Reggie Jackson, who lead the Clippers with more than eight 3-point attempts per game, were a combined 5 of 21 from distance. Jackson scored 13 points while going 4 of 17 from the field.

    The Bulls opened a 17-point lead in the first half and were on top for a majority of the game. Chicago is 1-1 to open a five-game trip that includes a back-to-back at L.A. against the Lakers on Monday.

    The Clippers did go in front 78-77 with 10 minutes to go on a fall-away, fall-down 10-footer from George. But the Bulls answered with a 9-0 run, capped by a LaVine 3-pointer, for an 86-78 advantage and held on from there.
