Bulls snap 2-game skid, run by Magic 102-84


Carlos Boozer scored 22 points, Luol Deng added 18 and the Bulls snapped a two-game losing streak with a 102-84 victory over the Orlando Magic Monday night.

The win, which was the Bulls' fifth straight over the Magic, also keeps alive their hopes of catching of Atlanta for the fifth seed in the Eastern Conference. They conclude their regular-season schedule at home Wednesday against Washington. Chicago needs to win that game and for Atlanta to split or lose their final two.

Tobias Harris led Orlando with 20 points, and Maurice Harkless added 16.

The Magic finish just 12-29 at home, their fewest victories in Orlando since they were 11-30 during the 2003-04 season. Orlando wraps up its schedule Wednesday in Miami.
