Carlos Boozer reiterated that he has tuned out discussion of the Chicago Bulls likely using the amnesty clause on him in the offseason for salary relief.

"I'm not worried about that," Boozer said. "I'm just focused on what's in front of me. All that stuff will take care of itself in the summertime."

Boozer has played exactly 24 minutes -- the entire first and third quarter -- for nine straight games, a revolving role he called "challenging."

"I've just adjusted," Boozer said. "I'm doing whatever I can to help my team in the minutes I'm out there. I'm being a team player. It's all about winning. You make sacrifices for the betterment of the group. That's what we're all doing.

"Each night, there are different challenges depending on matchups and how often you touch the ball because that varies. But the intensity is always there. The passion is always there. Playing hard to win is always there. The numbers may vary, but the winning part is always there."
