The Orlando Magic built off a strong performance against Miami and snap a six-game losing streak. They accomplished one of those. Maybe not the one they wanted though.
Orlando is still on a losing streak. Kirk Hinrich's bucket with 25 seconds left gave Chicago the lead for good as Jameer Nelson could not answer on two opportunities to tie it up. The Bulls front line proved to be too much in the 96-92 victory, wasting another season-best effort (this time from Nelson) and another strong effort from Nikola Vucevic.
That was not enough with the Bulls getting 31 points and 11 rebounds from Carlos Boozer. That proved to be too much to overcome as the Bulls were the more balanced team and did what they needed to hold on and record the win.
