Bulls Vs. Magic Final Score: Chicago Holds Orlando To 59 Points During Victory

The Chicago Bulls didn't have reigning MVP Derrick Rose against the Orlando Magic tonight, but they didn't need him. Coach Tom Thibodeau's crew set the franchise record for the fewest points allowed by an opponent during a, 85-59 win at the Amway Center.

Power forward Carlos Boozer led the Chicago attack, finishing with 24 points, 13 rebounds and four steals on 12-of-18 shooting. Reserve point guard John Lucas III stepped up his game again without Rose, scoring 20 points on 8-of-13 shooting that included four makes from three-point range. Luol Deng had 14 points for Chicago on 5-of-13 shooting from the field in the win.

Center Dwight Howard led the Magic with 18 points and 12 rebounds. Ryan Anderson had 10 points for the Magic in the loss.

Orlando finished just 24-for-68 from the field (35.3 percent) and shot 4-of-20 from three point range.

The win improves Chicago to 38-10 and makes coach Tom Thibodeau the quickest head coach ever to 100 victories.
