Chicago, IL (SportsNetwork.com) - Luol Deng led seven Chicago players in double figures with 23 points, and the Bulls handed the Indiana Pacers their first loss of the season with an impressive 110-94 verdict at the United Center.
Indiana hadn't allowed less than 91 points in getting off to a 9-0 start, but the Bulls shot 50.6 percent from the field and went a scorching 11-of-19 from 3-point range en route to their fourth consecutive victory following a 1-3 beginning to the campaign.

The Bulls also received 15 and 13 points, respectively, from reserves Taj Gibson and Kirk Hinrich while dominating the Pacers from virtually start-to-finish.
