Bulls Vs Magic: Dwight Howard’s Win
March 9, 2012 by staff
Bulls Vs Magic: Dwight Howard’s Win, This is a win the Orlando Magic will remember for a long time. After they squandered a second-quarter lead of 18 points and let a nine-point lead early in the fourth quarter slip away, they recovered and beat the Chicago Bulls, 99-94, at United Center.
After Carlos Boozer hit a jumper to put Chicago ahead 91-89 with 2:55 to go, Jason Richardson hurt his left leg with 2:10 to go when Jameer Nelson accidentally ran into him. Richardson did not return.
But Nelson and Dwight Howard connected for an alley-oop dunk on Orlando’s ensuing trip down the court to tie the score, and Ryan Anderson hit a 3 to put Orlando ahead 94-91. Anderson then hit a pair of free throws with 45.7 seconds left to extend the lead to five points and quiet Bulls fans.
Howard finished with 29 points and 18 rebounds, both game highs.
Boozer scored a team-high 26 points for the Bulls, who also received 17 points from Derrick Rose on 6-of-22 shooting.
With the victory, the Magic broke the Bulls’ eight-game winning streak.
Also, and perhaps more important, Orlando improved its record against the league’s elite teams — the Bulls, the Miami Heat, Oklahoma City Thunder and San Antonio Spurs — to 2-5 this season.
