Oladipo Lifts Pacers Over Bulls 98-96

Oladipo Lifts Pacers Over Bulls 98-96

The Pacers trailed the Bulls by as much as 17 points on Monday, and a loss to a 3-19 Chicago team would have been disappointing for IN, a team IN the thick of the Eastern Conference playoff chase. The effort marked his third game this season with 20 or more points and seventh time that he connected on multiple 3-pointers.

But the Bulls answered once again, closing the frame with an 8-2 run to take an 83-69 lead into the fourth quarter.

The Indiana Pacers struggled for most of the game against the NBA's worst team. "At the end of the day it was a big win for us and we can build on it".

"I feel like we just make the right play down the stretch", Oladipo said. But Denzel Valentine coughed the ball up and Oladipo atoned for his mistake, racing down the floor and knocking down a 3-pointer with 30.1 seconds remaining to give the Pacers their first lead of the night.

"We picked it up defensively, we were able to turn our defense into offense, getting steals, getting out in the open court, which we have a lot of guys who are talented at doing that", said guard Cory Joseph, who had seven points, three rebounds and three assists off the bench.

The Bulls had six players in double figures led by Dunn with 18 points, six rebounds and six assists. Then going back inside to Lopez and with Dunn's aggressive play the Bulls lead 55-39 at halftime. And Bogdanovic ended up with 17 points. Myles Turner then stripped the ball from Robin Lopez and tossed an outlet pass to a streaking Bogdanovic for an easy slam that made it 94-92 and forced a Bulls timeout.

IN got a nice spark from Darren Collison in the third quarter. The Arizona product did not hit at least half of his shots in any of the last eight games and is 15-of-53 from 3-point range in that span. The Bulls continued into the second quarter, pushing their lead up to 43-26 after threes from Paul Zipser and Valentine.

The Indiana Pacers were recently having some trouble battling the teams near the top of their respective conferences, but they have no trouble winning games against teams below them in the standings.
