CHICAGO, Jan. 15 (UPI) -- Derrick Rose registered a double-double of 18 points and 11 assists Saturday, helping stake the Chicago Bulls to a 77-64 win over Toronto.

The Bulls broke open a close game in the second half thanks, in part, to Carlos Boozer's 17 points and 13 rebounds.

Taj Gibson also helped Chicago raise its home record to 5-0 with 11 points with 12 boards.

The Raptors missed leading scorer Andrea Bargnani, who was out for the second straight game with a strained left calf.

Leandro Barbosa and DeMar DeRozan each netted 15 points, but it wasn't enough to prevent Toronto's sixth loss in seven games.
