CHICAGO, March 17 (UPI) -- C.J. Watson used accurate long-range shooting en route to 20 points Saturday, helping rally the Chicago Bulls to an 89-80 win over Philadelphia.

Watson, playing in place of the injured Derrick Rose, canned four 3-pointers, while Joakim Noah added 13 points and 11 rebounds for Chicago, which wrapped up a six-game homestand with a victory.

The Bulls trailed by eight points early the second half, but Carlos Boozer, Taj Gibson and Kyle Korver each scored 11 points to fuel Chicago's comeback.

The Sixers started well but faded in the second half, dropping a third straight game.

Jrue Holiday posted a career-high 30 points, dished off five assists and grabbed five rebounds for Philadelphia.
