Heat Vs. Bulls Score: Luol Deng, Derrick Rose Put Chicago Up Early

Down for a good portion to start the game, the Chicago Bulls turned the first quarter in their favor on a late Luol Deng dunk. But it wasn't any old dunk. Deng drove through the lane and dunked it on LeBron James, drawing the foul as well. Derrick Rose added a layup several seconds later to give the Bulls their first lead in over eight minutes. The Bulls lead, 25-21, after the first quarter.

The Bulls opened up the quarter with a 4-0 lead, but quickly saw the Heat go on a 12-2 run. Deng and Rose combined for 19 points on 8-of-16 shooting to save the quarter. The Bulls went on a 15-6 run to end the first period of play.

LeBron James and Dwyane Wade scored nine points and seven points, respectively, but the Hear are shooting under 40 percent from the field so far. Neither team's bench has put any points on the board.
