The bench, which has largely struggled to produce any scoring punch without James or Anthony Davis on the floor, finally broke out as they scored the first 27 points for the team in the fourth quarter and put the Lakers back up for good.
Los Angeles trailed by 19 before outscoring Chicago 38-19 in the fourth during the finale of a three-game trip.
"Your lady embarrassed to be with you", he calmly quipped as fans jeered.
In an era where the National Basketball Association loves to fine players caught on video cursing at fans, this is a flawless way to cut deeply while probably avoiding league punishment.
"I said I'd consider anything", Davis said.
"Washed King", Davis said to James, teasingly after the game.
Davis finished with 15 points and seven rebounds in his first game in his native Chicago since he was acquired in a trade with New Orleans. "All-Star is always a fun city and when you bring everybody back into the Mecca of basketball, it's always going to be great, so I'm excited for it and hopefully I'm able to be another All-Star and play in front of this home crowd, but I'll be here regardless".
The Bulls halfcourt offense is still a bit of an enigma at this point in the season, while on the flip side, the Lakers were running nice actions to get clean looks for the recently returned Kyle Kuzma, who got up eight shots in the fourth quarter.
For the first time this season, Davis will return to the United Center as a member of the Lakers on Tuesday night against the hometown Bulls. "Anytime, at least for me, shots go in, I get more and more confidence, and I feel like that's kind of the gist of what happened tonight". "A triple-double means absolutely nothing to me if it's not in a win". Avery Bradley was sidelined by a lower right leg contusion that he suffered during Sunday's 103-96 victory at San Antonio. He attempted to downplay those comments on Tuesday ahead of the Lakers' game against the Bulls with an answer he probably should have given initially.
Bulls: F Chandler Hutchison played for the first time this season. The Bulls have now lost two straight and will travel to Atlanta overnight for a back-to-back with the Hawks.
