Bulls move back to .500 with road win over Pacers


By John Oehser, for NBA.com

INDIANAPOLIS (NBA.com exclusive) -- Vinny Del Negro's halftime message didn't get through to the Chicago Bulls until the fourth quarter.

No matter. That was more than enough time.

With forward Luol Deng scoring seven of his team-high 23 points in the fourth quarter, and with the Bulls limiting the Pacers to 33.3 percent shooting in the period, the Bulls rallied for a 109-101 victory over Indiana in front of 12,945 at Conseco Fieldhouse on Tuesday.

Del Negro's thoughts at halftime?

That no way, no how was what the Bulls were doing defensively enough.

Forty-eight percent shooting. Sixty points.

Unacceptable, Del Negro told the Bulls.

"I told them they weren't going to win doing that," Del Negro, in his second season as the Bulls' coach, said after Chicago's second consecutive victory.

The Bulls (25-25), who sunk to 8-15 in mid-December, scratched back to .500 at the All-Star break -- tied for sixth in the Eastern Conference -- by outscoring the Pacers 52-41 in the second half, including 28-15 in the fourth quarter.

After trailing 92-85 with 7:59 remaining, Chicago outscored Indiana (18-34) by 19-5 over the next 6:36.

"We stopped playing our game, and they forced us into playing their game, and that's when we got in trouble," Pacers guard Earl Watson said. "This is not the way we wanted to go into the break.'

Pacers coach Jim O'Brien said there was a more basic difference.

That was Bulls point guard Derrick Rose.

Rose is 18th in the NBA in scoring at 19.9 points per game and 14th in assists at 5.8 per game, and topped both averages against the Pacers. He had 21 points and seven assists Monday, controlling the game with his size and strength. While Indiana threatened at times to pull away, O'Brien said Rose often kept it from happening.

"Rose in the open court was the difference in the basketball game," O'Brien said. "He attacks like a running back. There is no point guard in the league that can guard him one on one."

As key to the Bulls as their star guard on Monday was the play of John Salmons, who came off the bench and scored seven of his 21 points in the fourth quarter.

"I felt pretty good tonight," Salmon said. "I didn't settle for any jump shots. I wanted to be more aggressive, regardless of what the defense was doing."

Said Del Negro, "He attacked the basket and got to the free-throw line, which I'm happy about. He was big for us with his aggressiveness off the dribble."

Del Negro said the key as the Bulls continue competing for a playoff spot will be continuing to rebound and play well defensively. He also had one more key to the Bulls in the second half: health, particularly that of forward Joakim Noah, who is out with a foot injury at least through the All-Star break.

"We have to get healthy," Del Negro said. "That's for every team. It really comes down to defense for us, and rebounding the ball."

The Pacers, who lost in Milwaukee Saturday after winning twice at home last week, controlled most of the first three quarters, turning a 29-28 first-quarter deficit into a 60-57 lead, with Watson's 40-footer at the end of the half giving the Pacers that margin.

They then led 86-81 entering the fourth quarter, but as has often been the case this season for the Pacers, a tight game turned into a one-sided loss during a fourth-quarter in which they struggled offensively.

"We really wanted to win this one and go into the break on a positive note," Pacers forward Troy Murphy said. "We didn't get it done. We need the break, and hopefully, everybody will come back on a positive note and be ready to go."

The Pacers, after shooting 46.5 percent through three quarters, shot just 7 of 21 in the fourth quarter, and missed all four of their 3-pointers in the period.

"I think we stepped up our defense," Salmons said.

"I was real displeased with the defense at halftime," Del Negro said. "We battled back. We did a better job in the fourth quarter, and they missed some shots, of course. We tried to make it as difficult for them as possible. We got some misses, but the defense in the fourth quarter was solid."
