The Bulls held James Harden to just eight points, two rebounds, two assists, a block, and five turnovers in 27 minutes of the 111-87 beat down at the hands of the Bulls.
The Beard was a bust Thursday as he failed to reach double-digits for the first time in his last 11 games. The Rockets are 1-3 in the four games when Harden was held under 10 points this season.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Rays designated P Grant Balfour for assignment.
There's no word as to why Balfour was DFA'd here as he's pitched pretty well so far, especially for a guy who had to leave the team during spring training to help take care of his ailing father. He did hit a bump in the road Saturday when he allowed three earned runs in two-thirds of an inning, but before that, he had made five appearances, pitched 3 2/3 innings and allowed two hits with no runs. The Rays will likely give some reason for the move, but look for Balfour to pick up with another team fairly quickly. Analysis: Howard Bender
