|Deng Helps Lead Bulls Past Heat
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Luol Deng scored 25 points, Derrick Rose added 24 and the Chicago Bulls beat the Miami Heat 95-91 Saturday night to snap a three-game losing streak.
After blowing a fourth-quarter lead the previous night at Atlanta, the Bulls showed the poise that led to five straight wins before this skid and prevailed even though they were missing the injured Joakim Noah and suspended Tyrus Thomas.
They went ahead early in the fourth and held on, extending Miami's season-high losing streak to five.
Jermaine O'Neal tied season highs with 24 points and 16 rebounds, Dwyane Wade added 20 points, but the Heat fell for the seventh time in eight games.
