|Boozer, Deng Lead Bulls Past Pacers
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Carlos Boozer had 24 points and 10 rebounds, Derrick Rose scored 20 points despite two stomach ulcers and the Chicago Bulls beat the struggling Indiana Pacers 110-89 on Saturday night.
Luol Deng added 19 points after scoring 26 the previous night against Orlando, and the Bulls improved to 11-0 against Central teams while remaining the lone unbeaten team against its own division.
They got a major scare, though, about 3 minutes into the fourth quarter when Taj Gibson had to be helped off after crashing to the court with a right ankle injury. He hit the back of teammate Ronnie Brewer's foot and landed awkwardly as Indiana's Danny Granger drove the lane.
By then, the Bulls were in control and the Pacers were headed toward their seventh loss in eight games.
