The first quarter saw a rather sluggish start from both the Chicago Bulls and Orlando Magic, as both teams struggled to score at the offensive end. But the Chicago Bulls exited the period with a 22-14 lead after heating up a bit in the late stages and putting together a 9-0 run.
Orlando is shooting just 33.3% from the field so far and the Magic have turned the ball over six times already. Dwight Howard has six points and two rebounds, but he also picked up two fouls in the quarter.
John Lucas has nine for the Bulls, who are shooting 52.9%.
