Bulls Win Fifth Straight; All Away from Home
NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- Luol Deng scored a 26 points, including a putback with 0.2 left in regulation to force overtime, and the Chicago Bulls outlasted the New Orleans Hornets 108-106 Friday night.

Derrick Rose added 18 points for the Bulls, including two free throws that put Chicago ahead for good in overtime. The Bulls finished a season-long, seven-game road trip with their fifth consecutive victory.

David West led New Orleans with 29 points. Chris Paul added 18 points and 12 assists, but he hurt his left leg trying to save a loose ball near the end of regulation and was ineffective in overtime. He had to give up the ball to rookie point guard Darren Collison on the final play, and Collison committed a turnover in the lane as time ran out.
