|Rose Scores 30 to Lead Bulls Over Magic
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Derrick Rose scored 30 points and the Chicago Bulls beat the Orlando Magic 101-93 on Saturday night for their season-high fourth straight win.
Rose, slowed by an ankle injury early on, started the new year on the right foot after averaging just over 20 points in December. Rose scored the final six points of a 20-2 run spanning the second and third quarters that gave Chicago a 13-point lead, and he hit two free throws with 24.5 seconds left in the game to make it 98-93 after J.J. Redick hit a 3-pointer to pull Orlando within three.
The Magic called time, but Matt Barnes missed a lean-in 3-pointer, and Jameer Nelson clanged a 3-point attempt from the left side. Ryan Anderson then had another shot from long range rim out with seven seconds left off an inbound pass.
