Bulls Vs. Magic Score Update: Bulls Hold Lead, Up 73-62 After Third Quarter

The Chicago Bulls stretched their lead to as much as 17 points in the third quarter, but the Orlando Magic fought back, mainly from behind the three point line, to pull Chicago's lead to just above double digits going into the fourth quarter.

The Bulls have gotten a strong game from Luol Deng, who has feasted on the Magic's weak wing players on Friday night. Deng finished the third with 20 points on the game on 8-14 shooting including 2-2 from downtown. Derrick Rose has also had a strong game, with 17 points and seven assists, though only one of those assists came in the third quarter.

For the Magic, a strong quarter from Hedo Turkoglu kept the team afloat. After a quiet first half, Turkoglu finished the quarter with 10 points and three assists.
