Luol Deng scored 21 points, Carlos Boozer added 19 and 14 rebounds, and the Chicago Bulls managed easily without superstar Derrick Rose, embarrassing the Cleveland Cavaliers 114-75 on Friday night.

Rose missed his third straight game with a strained left big toe, but the Bulls barely missed the NBA's reigning MVP and handed the Cavaliers their worst home loss. Cleveland lost by 35 at home in 1990 and 2001.

Chicago, who have the league's best record at 14-3, led by 42 points in the fourth quarter when all the Bulls' starters were lounging in sweats.

Anderson Varejao scored 14 points and rookie Kyrie Irving added 13 for the Cavaliers, who began a challenging stretch. Eight of Cleveland's next nine games are against playoff teams from last season.
