CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Taj Gibson scored 17 points on 8 of 11 shooting and the Chicago Bulls beat Michael Jordan's Charlotte Bobcats 105-75 Friday night.

With Jordan looking on from the end of the Bobcats' bench, the Bulls jumped out to a 38-19 lead midway through the second quarter and never looked back.

The Bulls had failed to score 100 points in their previous six games and were held to 67 by Miami on Thursday night, but found their groove against the NBA-worst Bobcats.

Carlos Boozer had 10 points and 10 rebounds as eight Bulls finished in double figures.

Luol Deng added 14 points, Nate Robinson, Marco Belinelli and Richard Hamilton all had 12, and Joakim Noah finished with 10 points, eight rebounds and eight assists.

Kemba Walker had 27 points to lead Charlotte, which shot 33% from the field. It was the 10th time this season the Bobcats lost by 20 or more points.
