Rose scores 32 to lead Bulls over Pacers
CHICAGO (AP) - Derrick Rose scored 32 points, including eight in the final three minutes, and Luol Deng added 22 as the Chicago Bulls remained unbeaten this preseason with a 103-98 victory over the Indiana Pacers on Friday night.
Rose, who played 31 minutes, also had nine assists and was 9 for 15 from the field, including 4 for 7 from 3-point range, as the Bulls improved to 5-0.
Paul George led the Pacers (0-5) with 22 points.
The Bulls were without Jimmy Butler (left knee contusion) and Joakim Noah (right groin strain). Noah will be shut down for a week in hopes that the rest will clear up the injury that has bothered him since early in training camp.
