CHICAGO — Danny Granger scored 22 points Wednesday night and the Indiana Pacers became the first visiting team to win on Chicago's home floor this season, beating the Bulls 95-90.
Roy Hibbert added 20 points, including a key dunk after a mad scramble that gave the Pacers a four-point lead with 13 seconds to go. The Pacers, who lost to the Bulls in a heated opening round of the playoffs last spring, trailed by 10 at the half Wednesday night.
The Bulls, missing injured starting forward Luol Deng (torn ligament left wrist), are 16-4 and 8-1 at home. Derrick Rose led Chicago with 24 points but had only two in the final quarter. Ronnie Brewer, who started for Deng, scored 20 and grabbed 10 rebounds.
