Bulls Defeat Pacers After Back-And-Forth Game


Zach LaVine scored 23 points and Nikola Vucevic recorded a double-double with 17 rebounds and 24 points, as the Chicago Bulls upset the Indiana Pacers 112-105 on Monday in Indianapolis.

The Bulls handed the Pacers their first setback of the early season with the help of DeMar DeRozan, who scored 16 of his 20 points in the second half.

Indiana made 40.9 percent of its shots, going 12-for-46 from beyond the arc. The Bulls finished at 46 percent from the field despite only trying 17 three-pointers, of which they made six.

Tyrese Haliburton (19 points, 13 assists) and Myles Turner (20 points, 11 rebounds) each recorded double-doubles for the Pacers. Bruce Brown and Bennedict Mathurin both scored fifteen points, and backup Buddy Hield chipped in with eleven.

For Chicago, Jevon Carter scored 11 points in his only game.

Together, Chicago and Indiana produced 14 lead changes and 21 ties. With 1:55 left, Vucevic made a three-point play to give Chicago a 108-102 advantage, starting the Bulls’ late-game lead.

With 1:17 remaining, LaVine split a pair of free throws to tie the game at three possessions. Aaron Nesmith of the Pacers fouled out moments earlier while trying to collect an offensive rebound after Brown missed a three-point shot.

Indiana led the Bulls 83–78 going into the fourth quarter, but a sluggish start on the court gave the visitors a chance to tie the game at 86. With 8:35 remaining, LaVine’s driving layup gave Chicago its first lead of the second half, 88-86.

Indiana led 55-53 at the half thanks to the contributions of Turner (13 points) and Haliburton (11 points), who beat the buzzer in the second quarter with a jumper off a screen. Before the half, neither the Bulls nor the Pacers had a lead of more than six points. Both teams struggled from the field, with Indiana shooting 46.5 percent to Chicago’s 46.2 percent.

During the first half, Vucevic contributed nine rebounds and ten points. At the half, LaVine had 10 more points for Chicago.

Indiana’s winning run against the Bulls came to an end after three games, as the team defeated Chicago three times in the previous season.
