Bulls Snap Two Game Skid

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Luol Deng

scored 20 points and the Chicago Bulls snapped a two-game skid with a 96-87

victory over the New Orleans Hornets last night.

The Bulls took the lead for good late in

the first quarter, but didn't put the Hornets away until Deng's clutch jumper

from the top of the key with 44.8 seconds left put Chicago up 94-87 after the

Hornets had pulled within five points on Eric Gordon's 3-pointer.

Carlos Boozer added 17 points and 10

rebounds, and Joakim Noah had 15 points and 17 rebounds for Chicago, which

out-rebounded New Orleans 47-39 and had 15 second-chance points.

Gordon finished with 20 and Anthony Davis

had 15 points and 10 rebounds for New Orleans, which saw its two-game winning

streak snapped after committing nine of its 15 turnovers in the final quarter.

Greivis Vasquez had 11 points and 10 assists for the Hornets.
