Carlos Boozer put up 31 points and 11 rebounds for the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday night, leading them past the Orlando Magic 96-94 on the road. The Bulls' frontcourt had a big night, despite Joakim Noah sitting out with flu-like symptoms. Luol Deng had 23 points, and Taj Gibson had 21 points and 11 rebounds. Jameer Nelson led Orlando with 32 points, but missed a jumper at the buzzer that would've sent the game to overtime.
