Chicago (AFP) - Dwyane Wade tallied 22 points in his Chicago homecoming as the Bulls showed off their retooled roster with a 105-99 win over the Boston Celtics on Thursday at the United Center.
After trading point guard Derrick Rose to the New York Knicks, Chicago overhauled last season's roster with the addition of Wade and Rajon Rondo, who signed with the Bulls in the offseason.
Wade, who finished with 22 points, hit four-of-six from the three-point line in his first game with the Bulls.
Wade had just seven threes during all of the last National Basketball Association season for the Miami Heat.
Wade, who grew up in Chicago, sealed the victory Thursday with his final three of the night.
He nailed a long-range shot over guard Avery Bradley with 26 seconds left in the fourth quarter to put Chicago up 104-99.
