CHICAGO (AP) - Carlos Boozer scored 19 points and the short-handed Chicago Bulls snapped a four-game losing streak with a 100-84 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday night.

D.J. Augustin scored 18. Tony Snell came on strong in the second half to finish with 17 points, and Chicago prevailed after matching its longest slide in four years under coach Tom Thibodeau.

Boozer and Augustin both got off to strong starts as the Bulls build a 17-point halftime lead, and Chicago withstood several pushes down the stretch to come away with the win after dropping 13 of 16.

The Bulls shot nearly 54 percent overall and were 10 of 15 on 3-pointers.

Andrew Bynum had 19 points for the Cavaliers, but Kyrie Irving had a rough night, finishing with 14 points on 5-of-16 shooting after fighting through an illness to score 39 in Friday's overtime win over Milwaukee.
