Pacers rally to beat Bulls

From there, IN began to clamp down on defense, limiting the Bulls to 13 points IN the final quarter and getting the key stops that were largely missing IN the first half. He's averaging 23.1 points, four assists and five rebounds per game this season. Meanwhile, the Pacers chipped away, getting seven points from Bojan Bogdanovic in the decisive run - including a thunderous dunk to draw in to within 94-92 - to set the stage for Oladipo's clutch play. Bogdanovic had 17 points, while Collison added 14. "I thought tonight we had high energy on the defensive end of the floor". But Denzel Valentine coughed the ball up and Oladipo atoned for his mistake, racing down the floor and knocking down a 3-pointer with 30.1 seconds remaining to give the Pacers their first lead of the night.

But Indy's smothering defense in the game's final possession forced the Chicago to settle for a fading three-pointer as a Hail Mary attempt for the game. Coach Fred Hoiberg said initially he will be limited to under 20 minutes playing time. "The big message to our team is if we continue to play with that type of effort, if we continue to play the right way, and unselfish, we're going to start winning games".

Perhaps enough is enough as the Bulls grabbed a 55-39 halftime lead over the Pacers. The Bulls are getting solid play from second-year point guard Kris Dunn, who led the team with 15 points on Monday and scored in double figures in 13 of the last 18 contests. The Arizona product did not hit at least half of his shots in any of the last eight games and is 15-of-53 from 3-point range in that span.

Turner said the Pacers didn't take the Bulls lightly. "Just to get out in the open floor and see a couple easy ones go in, build some momentum...that's what happened in the fourth quarter and we were able to pull it out".

Bulls: All three of Chicago's wins have come on Friday.

IN scored the first four points of the second quarter, but the Bulls immediately answered a 13-2 run to extend their lead to 43-26.
