CHICAGO (AP) - Luol Deng scored 15 of his 23 points in the second half to lead the Chicago Bulls to a 99-93 win over Orlando on Tuesday night, the Magic's first loss of the season.
Deng and Nate Robinson keyed a 15-2 second-half burst when Chicago turned a five-point deficit into an eight-point lead. Robinson hit two straight jumpers to put Chicago ahead 74-70 early in the fourth quarter.
Joakim Noah had 20 points, nine rebounds and five blocks for Chicago, while Robinson added 11 points and six assists off the bench. Robinson's layup with 2:35 to play put Chicago up 91-81, its biggest lead of the game.
Arron Afflalo led the Magic with 28 points, 19 in the second half. E'Twaun Moore added a career-high 17 points.
Glen Davis, who entered the game fourth in the NBA with 25.5 points per game, scored 16 but shot just 7 of 22 from the floor and fouled out.
Nicola Vucevic had 16 points and 10 rebounds for the Magic, who had won three of their last four in Chicago.
Orlando had started the season 2-0, surprising many around the league after trading star center Dwight Howard to the Los Angeles Lakers over the summer.
THUNDER 108, RAPTORS 88
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Russell Westbrook shrugged off a sore shoulder to score 19 points and Oklahoma City cruised past Toronto.
Wearing a black padded sleeve to protect his bruised left shoulder, Westbrook held Toronto's leading scorer, Kyle Lowry, to two points on 1-of-4 shooting. Lowry exited with 1:29 left in the second quarter with a right ankle sprain and did not return.
Serge Ibaka added 17 points and a game-high nine rebounds for Oklahoma City. Kevin Durant and reserve Kevin Martin each scored 15.
The Thunder led by as many as 29 points and never trailed after Durant converted a pair of free throws with 7:44 remaining in the first quarter. Oklahoma City coach Scott Brooks was able to rest his starters in the fourth as the Thunder improved to 2-2 with their highest-scoring game of the season.
Jonas Valanciunas led the Raptors with 18 points.
