Bulls lose to Pacers, 98-96

Bulls lose to Pacers, 98-96

IN scored the first four points of the second quarter, but the Bulls immediately answered a 13-2 run to extend their lead to 43-26.

The Bulls have lost 10 or more games seven times in franchise history. And the Bulls went inside with effective play from Lopez and Dunn that got the Bulls off fast to a 13-4 lead and then 30-20 after one quarter. "It was about us tonight, coming out and trying to take care of business, playing a better game than we certainly played in NY (a 108-101 loss on November 5), but a better game than our last two opponents", Pacers coach Nate McMillan told reporters after the win.

The start was disappointing for the Indiana Pacers.

"I was going out there and playing as hard as I could on both ends of the floor and trying to help us pull it out", Oladipo said. The Pacers first lead of the game was on a Victor Oladipo three with 30 seconds left in the game.

"We picked it up defensively, we were able to turn our defense into offense, getting steals, getting out in the open court, which we have a lot of guys who are talented at doing that", said guard Cory Joseph, who had seven points, three rebounds and three assists off the bench.

Oladipo led five Pacers starters in double figures with 27 points.

ABOUT THE BULLS (3-19): Promising rookie forward Lauri Markkanen is already the go-to scorer for the young team but is struggling with his shot of late and went 5-of-13 from the floor on Monday to drop to 39.3 percent on the season.

Turner said the Pacers didn't take the Bulls lightly. And Bogdanovic ended up with 17 points.

Kris Dunn had 18 points, six rebounds and six assists for the Bulls (3-20), and Robin Lopez scored 16 points.

IN got a nice spark from Darren Collison in the third quarter. Denzel Valentine finished with 15 points and eight boards. The Bulls continued into the second quarter, pushing their lead up to 43-26 after threes from Paul Zipser and Valentine. The Pacers will host the Central Division-leading Cavaliers Friday night.
