CHICAGO(AP) Derrick Rose elicited oohs, aahs ... and groans.

Luol Deng and Ben Gordon provided enough big shots to lead the Chicago Bulls to a 108-95 victory over former coach Scott Skiles and the Milwaukee Bucks in the season-opener Tuesday.

Deng scored 21 points and Gordon added 18 to offset Michael Redd's 30.

Rose, the No. 1 draft pick out of Memphis and a Chicago native, wowed fans with his quickness and strength but mixed in enough mistakes to remind them he is a work in progress. He finished with 11 points, nine assists and four turnovers.
