The Bulls proceeded to go on a 12-2 run and make a game of it late. Deng had a chance to send the game to overtime with Chicago down two, but he missed a wide open layup with 2.9 seconds left.

Deng inbounded to Noah and then bolted to the rim when Noah made a perfect back-door pass, but Deng's layup was off the mark.

Davis recovered the rebound and made two at the line to secure the win.

"We got ourselves into a little bit of a hole early," said Dunleavy. "We fought back and battled, but we didn't make enough plays down the stretch."

The Bulls scored the first six points of the night but Orlando followed with a 15-0 run.
