Bulls 95, Pacers 86
Derrick Rose and Luol Deng each scored 16 points to help the
Chicago Bulls beat the Indiana Pacers 95-86 on Friday night in the
preseason opener for both teams.
C.J. Watson added 15 points for the Bulls, who brought their
share of red-clad fans for the game that had some of the intensity
of a key regular-season game. It was a rematch of last season’s
first-round playoff series, which the Bulls won 4-1.
Tyler Hansbrough had 19 points and 12 rebounds, and Paul George
added 17 points and 10 rebounds for the Pacers. Danny Granger
scored 12 points for Indiana, but was just 5 for 17 from the field.
Indianapolis native George Hill scored three points in his first
game in a Pacers uniform after being acquired from San Antonio.
