LOS ANGELES -- Joakim Noah played the final 6:53 with five fouls. Leo Weinkauf Jersey . Chicago coach Tom Thibodeau didnt want to take him out with the Bulls double-digit lead slipping away, and thats just the way the All-Star centre wanted it. Noah finished with 18 points and 13 rebounds, and the Bulls held off the stubborn Los Angeles Lakers 92-86 on Sunday after nearly blowing a 19-point advantage. After picking up his last foul, Noah made a key block against 7-footer Chris Kaman and got a dunk at the other end -- all in a 16-second span. "It was too tight. Either we were going to win it with him, or that was going to be it," Thibodeau said. "At that point, I didnt think we could afford two or three minutes (with Noah on the bench), so we rolled the dice and were fortunate. Were a little short-handed right now -- and the way they spread you out on the perimeter, you need guys that can cover ground." Kirk Hinrich had 19 points and Taj Gibson added 18 for the Bulls, who never trailed against an injury-ravaged Lakers squad missing Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol, Jordan Farmar, Nick Young, Jodie Meeks and Xavier Henry. Gasol, who had a season-high 19 rebounds the previous time the teams met, missed his fourth straight game because of a groin strain. Kaman scored a season-high 27 points off the bench for the Lakers, who won their previous two games following a 3-19 slide that buried them in the race for a Western Conference playoff spot. The 11-year veterans point total was two off his career high, which came on Feb. 13, 2012, when he was playing for New Orleans against Dallas. "Hes been in the league for a long time, and hes one of the most skilled big men Ive ever seen ever since I was in high school," Gibson said. "He has both left and right-hand hooks, a mid-range game -- and once hes in a rhythm like he was today, its really hard to stop him." Point guard Steve Nash, playing his third game after missing 39 because of a nerve problem in his back, had eight points in 21-plus minutes before departing with 5 minutes left in the third quarter because of irritation in his left leg. The 18-year veteran and two-time MVP, who celebrated his 40th birthday Friday with a team-high 19 points in a victory at Philadelphia, was hit on the same leg he fractured last season. "It was just getting worse lately," Nash said. "But I wanted to play, especially when we are losing. You want to try to fight through it. Ive been through that before and I know where it goes, so I didnt want to risk it. I think it was the smartest decision to come out." Gibson, whose buzzer-beating layup in overtime gave the Bulls a 102-100 victory over the Lakers on Jan. 20 at Chicago, led the Bulls to a 52-46 halftime lead with 16 points. He made his seventh start of the season as Carlos Boozer missed his second straight game with a left calf strain. The Bulls, who finished their trip 3-3, opened with a 10-0 run while the Lakers missed their first six shots -- including an airball by Wesley Johnson on a 3-point try from 27 feet. Chicagos starters outscored Los Angeles starters 73-24. "We wanted to throw the first punch," Noah said. "We started off the game just going to Taj and he set the tone for us in the post." Gibsons reverse layup increased the Bulls margin to 15 before Los Angeles scored the next 12 points to slice the deficit to 42-39 with 5:55 left in the second quarter. But Chicago built its lead back up to 72-53, its biggest of the game, with a 15-5 run capped by Hinrichs 3-pointer with 3 1/2 minutes left in the third. Down by 13 with 6:37 to play, the Lakers narrowed the gap to 88-84 after Steve Blake stole the ball from Hinrich and Kaman fed Johnson for a slam dunk that capped a 13-4 run with 48.3 seconds left. But D.J. Augustin, who had 15 points off the bench, sank four free throws in the final 21 seconds to help seal the victory. The Bulls are 15-5 in games theyve led by at least 15 points. Thursday night, they blew a 16-point lead at Golden State and lost 102-87. "It was very important to close this one out, being the last game of the trip," Hinrich said. "Thats something we have to work on -- keeping our foot on the gas pedal and not relaxing. We didnt do that today, but well definitely take the win." Chicago is 19-20 since star-crossed All-Star Derrick Rose went down with his second major knee injury in three seasons. "The whole time Ive been here weve had some real tough injuries and weve always been at the egde, but we always crawl and fight our way back. Thats our mindset," Gibson said. "Weve got young guys, new guys, and they believe in the same thing. We believe weve got a shot at the playoffs. We believe in each other. And that shows by the way we play." NOTES: The Bulls starters outscored the Lakers starters 73-24. ... The Lakers have used 25 different starting lineups and the Bulls have used 18. ... The Lakers ended the first half with a stellar passing play started by Blake, in which four different players touched the ball on the fast break and Jordan Hill was left standing all alone under the basket for a layup with 0.06 seconds on the clock. Niklas Dorsch Jersey . Even if he is shooting 38 per cent from the field overall this season, the Utah Jazz rookie always feels like his final shot is going in. Rafinha Jersey . -- Jose Bautista never worries about hitting homers during the regular season. .ca Fantasy Editor Scott Cullen, NFL Editor Ben Fisher, and Isaac Owusu discuss three hot fantasy football topics.PORTLAND, Ore. -- Former Portland Timbers forward Eddie Johnson is suing the Major League Soccer team for $9.9 million, alleging that he was allowed to practice while he still had concussion symptoms. The lawsuit was filed Wednesday in Multnomah County Circuit Court. It names the Timbers ownership group, Peregrine Sports LLC, and members of the teams medical staff. Johnson sustained a concussion before a game Aug. 3, 2011, and another one 11 days later, prompting the team to rule him out for the rest of the season. The lawsuit alleges that when he returned for the MLS preseason in 2012, he was still experiencing symptoms. The native of Chester, England, retired that April after another head injury. The lawsuit claims that the Johnson suffered "serious and permanent traumatic head and brain injuries" that caused headaches, memory impairment, impaired balance, blurred vision, dizziness and other conditions. "Johnson has and will continue to suffer loss of function and ability, pain, discomfort, mental suffering, anxiety, and incoonvenience and interference with his normal and usual activities," the lawsuit said. James Rodriguez Jersey. The Timbers said in a statement released Thursday that they would not comment specifically on the lawsuit, but said the team follows all MLS health-related protocols for players. "Additionally, we approach head injuries with extra caution and err on the side of conservatism above and beyond official protocol when dealing with them," the team said. "We have an expert staff of physicians and trainers and stand by them and their evaluations," the teams statement said. Johnson played professionally in England and the United State for more than 10 years. His career started with Manchester United and he appeared with the first team during the 2003-04 season. He played for several English clubs before moving to the United States in 2009. He was one of the first four players signed by the Timbers for their inaugural MLS season in 2011. He appeared in seven league matches and had a goal during his time in Portland.
