|CHICAGO (AP) -- Derrick Rose scored 33 points and Luol Deng added seven of his 23 in overtime to lead the Chicago Bulls to a 115-111 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers Friday night.
Brandon Roy's jumper with 3:46 left in overtime gave the Blazers a 107-106 lead, but Kirk Hinrich answered for the Bulls with a driving layup, Deng made a fadeaway jumper, and Joakim Noah found Taj Gibson for a layup to put the Bulls up 112-107 with 2:09 remaining.
Portland came back and Roy tried for the lead but missed a 3-pointer with 5 seconds left. Deng finished on the other end to seal the game for the Bulls with a dunk.
The Bulls have won six of seven since the All-Star break.
LaMarcus Aldridge finished with a season-high 32 points and Roy added 23 for Portland.
