Magic Vs. Bulls Score Update: Orlando Leads 79-71 After Three Quarters

The Chicago Bulls temporarily took a small lead against the Orlando Magic in the third quarter, but they now trail 79-71 going into the fourth quarter at the United Center. With just over five minutes left, Chicago took a 67-66 lead on a Carlos Boozer jumper, but Orlando finished off the quarter on a 13-4 run.

Three-pointers have been huge for the Magic, as they've knocked down 10-of-20 shots from long distance so far. Between that success from long range, a big game from Dwight Howard and a struggling Derrick Rose, it's understandable for the Magic to be holding a lead at this point in the game.

Boozer and Taj Gibson lead Chicago with 14 points apiece so far. Rose has added 12 points and seven assists, but he's just 5-of-17 shooting from the field. Howard has 25 points and 14 rebounds for Orlando while Jason Richardson has led the three-point attack by knocking down four so far en route to 18 pounds.
