DWYANE Wade took charge in the dying moments and Chicago survived a late Kings rally, 112-107, on Monday in Sacramento (Tuesday, Manila time).

The Bulls saw a 27-point lead vanish, but Wade carried the Bulls to victory by scoring the final five points.

A Wade jumper put the Bulls back in front 109-107 and an interception of a Matt Barnes pass led to a dunk that pushed Chicago four points clear.

The Bulls bounced back from a loss to the Rockets and evened their win-loss record 26-26.

Wade finished with 31 points, while the rest of the Bulls starters also scored in double figures.

Michael Carter-Williams scored 21, Robin Lopez had 17 points, while Taj Gibson and Jerian Grant had 13 apiece.

The Kings could not build on the surprise win over the Golden State Warriors, absorbing their 32nd loss in 52 games.

Ty Lawson scored 22 points, while fellow reserve Barnes finished with 19.

DeMarcus Cousins had 18 points and 14 rebounds for Sacramento.
