Bulls Vs. Magic Recap: Bulls Ride Strong Fourth Quarter To 97-83 Victory

Dwight Howard dominated early for the Orlando Magic (5-3), but the totality of the Chicago Bulls (7-1) was too much for the Magic in Chicago's 97-83 victory. The Bulls crushed the Magic in most major categories Friday night, even with Dwight Howard putting up his customary double-double with 28 points and 15 rebounds.

The Bulls outrebounded the Magic 46 to 37, had 27 assists to Orlando's 15, shot 57% from three to Orlando's 35% and only had 12 turnovers compared to the Magic's 17. Individually, the Bulls had two players with double-doubles: Derrick Rose finished with 21 points, 10 assists and eight rebounds and Carlos Boozer put up 20 points and 13 rebounds. Chicago also enjoyed 5-7 shooting from three from Kyle Korver, who finished the night with a +19 plus/minus.

Chicago's road trip will continue Saturday night when they take on the Atlanta Hawks.
