Bulls Vs. Pacers Score: Luol Deng's 21 Points Keeps Chicago Ahead

The Chicago Bulls and the Indiana Pacers continue to play a close game in the second half of Game 3. The Bulls hold just a one-point lead, 65-64, heading into the final quarter of play.

There was some physical play in the quarter from Carlos Boozer and Jeff Foster, the latter making contact with the Bulls' Derrick Rose in the paint. It led to a minor gathering around the free throw line, but went no further. Foster also sent Luol Deng to the floor with an elbow to the head.

The Bulls took a four-point lead, 63-59, with less than two minutes left on the clock as a result of a Dahntay Jones foul on Rose, who was in the process of shooting a three. Rose made all three free throws, but Jones came back with a layup and the free throw to bring it back to one. Deng and Mike Dunleavy exchanged points to bring us to the current score.
