Rose, Deng drive Bulls to home win over Pacers

CHICAGO (NBA.com exclusive) -- The Chicago Bulls scored the game's first two points and never trailed Wednesday, but that does not tell the real tale of the game against the Indiana Pacers, for either team.

After taking a 23-point lead in the first quarter, the Bulls squandered the entire advantage in the second quarter, then got serious again on defense in the second half to forge a 120-110 victory over the endlessly struggling Pacers.

Luol Deng scored a season-high 31 points with nine rebounds and four blocked shots and the Bulls (30-27) won for the fifth time in the last six games. Derrick Rose had 23 points, nine rebounds and eight assists while Flip Murray scored 16 points off the bench in 32 minutes of playing time.

Danny Granger returned to the Pacers lineup after missing a game due to personal reasons and scored 20 points. Brandon Rush made five 3-pointers and finished with 21 points, and the Pacers (19-38) got 42 points from reserves Luther Head (15), T. J. Ford (14) and Dahntay Jones (13). The Pacers played the game without forward Mike Dunleavy, who was suffering from food poisoning.

The first quarter Wednesday was reminiscent of other recent home games for the Bulls, like their 33-point win over New York Feb. 16 and their 32-point win over Philadelphia last week. The Bulls shot 56 percent for the quarter and led 35-12 with one minute remaining in the quarter.

The Pacers, on the other hand, shot less than 30 percent in the quarter (7 for 24) and that included making their last two shots, both of them 3-pointers, to close to within 19 points, 37-18.

Deng was especially effective, making all four of his shots and three free throws for 11 points and three rebounds in the first quarter.

"I really tried to come out aggressively in the first quarter,'' Deng said. "When they came out to guard me, I was able to get to the basket and when they dropped back I knocked down some shots."

Then, in the second quarter, the Pacers shot 50 percent, and six of their 10 baskets were 3-pointers. Rush made 4of 5 3-point attempts, and the Pacers also got to the line 11 times for 10 points, and finally tied the game at 52-all with two minutes left in the first half.

"We played defense, we challenged shots, some shots fell for us,'' Indiana coach Jim O'Brien said. "Our defense allowed us to get out on the break and spread the court."

The Bulls, coming off their embarrassing loss at Washington Monday, got the wakeup call they needed in that second quarter Wednesday, and got serious again about defense in the third quarter. The Bulls are definitely a team that feeds offensively off strong defensive play, and they again got hot from the field in the third quarter, led by Deng and Rose.

The Bulls built a 15-point lead in the fourth quarter, and were up 103-88 with 8:38 left. But the Pacers did not fold up their tents, and closed to within eight points with just over a minute left, forcing Bulls coach Vinny Del Negro into a late timeout.

"We were able to come back, but it was too much hard work,'' Ford said. "When you come back from 23 points, once they go on a run you have to try to withstand that again. We just weren't able to handle that in the third quarter."

There was a significant defensive play in the final minutes and it came from Rose. Indiana's A.J. Price was a breakaway with Rose trailing, but Rose caught up to him and got in front of Price under the basket. As Price put on three jump fakes, Rose waited, and when Price finally went up, Rose got the last of 10 blocked shots for the Bulls on the night.

Rose got as close as he has all season to getting his first triple-double, but he was self-effacing when asked about it after the game.

"I think I have only had two in my career, one in grammar school and one in high school,'' Rose said. "Triple-doubles are hard. I just want to win. I wasn't worried about a triple-double."

The Bulls have won 20 of their last 30 games dating back to late December, and are now a game and a half behind Toronto for the fifth spot in the East after the Raptors lost to Portland Wednesday. The Blazers visit the Bulls on Friday.
