The Chicago Bulls snapped the Indiana Pacers' nine-game winning streak to start the season with a dominant 110-94 victory. Chicago's three-point shooting gave the team a huge lift as they made 11 of their 19 shots from beyond the arc. Derrick Rose went 6-for-11 from deep and finished the game with 20 points.
Indiana struggled on both sides of the ball, but their offense through the first two quarters buried them early. They scored 15 points in the second quarter and 35 points total in the first half to the Bulls' 60.
Paul George's nine-game streak of scoring 20 or more points also came to an end. He scored 12 points on 3-of-14 shooting. Lance Stephenson also struggled from the field, making just five of his 14 field goals. Luol Deng finished with a game-high 23 points while pulling down seven rebounds.
Indiana's lone bright spot was Chris Copeland, who made three of his four three-point attempts and finished with 13 points off the bench. The Pacers shot 25 percent from deep and 40 percent overall from the field.
