CHICAGO (AP) - John Salmons tied a career-high with 38 points, and the Chicago Bulls rallied for another surprising victory, beating the Boston Celtics 127-121 on Tuesday night despite 37 points from Paul Pierce.

The Celtics were trying to clinch a share of the Atlantic Division. They’ll have to wait for that.

Coming off a 86-77 loss at Milwaukee on Sunday in which they set a season-low for points scored, the Celtics set one for points allowed in another disappointing loss for a team that’s trying to lock down homecourt advantage in the playoffs.

Boston led by 13 in the third quarter, only to give it away, and Chicago surprised another playoff-bound team after beating New Orleans 97-79 on Saturday.
