Oladipo Lifts Pacers Over Bulls 98-96

Oladipo Lifts Pacers Over Bulls 98-96”

In fact, they didn't lead until the closing seconds. "At the end of the day it was a big win for us and we can build on it".

Oladipo drove to the rim and drew contact, but no whistle and the Bulls secured the rebound. Oladipo's 3 gave IN its first lead at 97-96, and he tacked on a free throw with 12.8 seconds left.

ABOUT THE PACERS (13-11): Veteran forward Thaddeus Young scored 20 points on 9-of-11 shooting on Monday and went 2-of-2 from 3-point range.

But Indy's smothering defense in the game's final possession forced the Chicago to settle for a fading three-pointer as a Hail Mary attempt for the game.

When asked what he was doing, Oladipo, who finished with a game-high 27 points, simply said, "I missed a free throw".

The Pacers were sluggish out of the gates, falling into an early 13-4 hole a little over five minutes into the opening period. The Bulls were shooting 52.3 percent through three quarters with a 37-26 edge on the boards and 36-18 inside.

The Bulls lost to the Pacers in their first meeting this season.

The Blue & Gold were able to trim the deficit to 11 on two occasions but never got back within single digits before halftime, trailing to 55-39 heading into the break. Before the reporter could get a question in, the Pacers guard got on the floor and did 10 quick push-ups. And the Bulls went inside with effective play from Lopez and Dunn that got the Bulls off fast to a 13-4 lead and then 30-20 after one quarter.

Oladipo remembered that missed free throw as Fox Sports was about to interview him on the court after the victory.

Turner said the Pacers didn't take the Bulls lightly.

Bojan Bogdanovic had 17 points for IN (14-11), and Darren Collison finished with 14.

Kris Dunn had 18 points, six rebounds and six assists for the Bulls (3-20), and Robin Lopez scored 16 points.

Chicago is just 1-12 on the road this season. The Pacers will host the Central Division-leading Cavaliers Friday night.

The franchise record losing streak is 16 games.
