Boozer Paces Bulls in Win

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Carlos

Boozer had a season-high 31 points and 11 rebounds, Luol Deng scored 23 points

and the Chicago Bulls hung on to beat the Orlando Magic 96-94 last night.

 

Taj Gibson added 21 points and 10

rebounds for the Bulls, who played without center Joakim Noah. Chicago was

out-rebounded 37-34 in Noah's absence but exploited an injury-plagued Magic

front court, outscoring them 42-32 in the paint.

 

Jameer Nelson missed a leaning

jumper in the closing seconds that would have tied it, sending Orlando to its

seventh straight loss overall and fifth in a row at home.

 

Nelson returned to the lineup after missing two

games with a sore hip and scored a season-high 32 points. Nik Vucevic finished

with 20 points and 12 rebounds, and Arron Afflalo added 19 points for the

Magic.
