CHICAGO (UPI) -- Luol Deng scored a game-high 30 points Wednesday, enabling the Chicago Bulls to upend the Charlotte Bobcats 91-82. The Bobcats led by 36-28 in the second period before the Bulls grabbed a 42-39 halftime advantage. Charlotte led 66-61 with about eight minutes remaining before Chris Duhon and Andres Nocioni keyed a 19-4 Bulls run that put Chicago on top 80-70 with 3:14 left.
Charlotte never led again. Nocioni had 15 points and 11 rebounds, while Ben Gordon had 13 points and five assists. Duhon added 12 points, five rebounds and nine assists for the Bulls, who won for the third time in their four games. Charlotte was led by 22 points and eight rebounds from Gerald Wallace. Jason Richardson and Raymond Felton scored 17 points apiece, and Emeka Okafor had 10 points and 10 rebounds for the Bobcats, who suffered their seventh straight loss.
Charlotte lost to the Bulls for the second time in less than a week.
Once again the Bulls are showing some hope, I would like to see some more out of Noah and Ben but it seems that they are still adjusting. Either way I'm proud of their achievement last night and hope to see more in the near future.
