Sunday evening's blowout result led to increased playing time for the Chigago Bulls' reserves, who responded with a series-high 30 points, 10 by Scott Burrell in 25 minutes and six each by Kerr and Jud Buechler. All 12 Bulls played, and all 12 scored.

And for the first time in the series the Bulls' bench outscored Utah Jazz reserves, 30-17. If it's possible, the Jazz subs shot worse than the starters, hitting 7 of 33 shots for 21.2 percent. The starters were 14 for 37, 37.8 percent.- Chicago Tribune
