Luol Deng scored 23 points, including 15 in the second half, to lead the Chicago Bulls to a 99-93 victory at home over the Orlando Magic.

Deng was joined Tuesday night by four other teammates in double figures - Joakim Noah, Carlos Boozer, Nate Robinson and Taj Gibson - as the Bulls ran their record to 3-1.

Noah notched a double-double by scoring 20 and grabbing nine rebounds at the United Center for Chicago, which is trying to make do without point guard Derrick Rose, out indefinitely with a serious knee injury.

Guard Arron Afflalo scored 28 points as the Magic, who are trying to rebuild after losing franchise player Dwight Howard to the Los Angeles Lakers, lost their first game of the season to fall to 2-1.

In other action Tuesday, Russell Westbrook led the Oklahoma City Thunder to an easy 108-88 win over the Toronto Raptors, scoring 19 points and dishing out eight assists.

The Thunder, which reached the NBA Finals last season, have struggled at the start of the 2012-2013 season but Tuesday night's win improved their record to 2-2.

In one other Tuesday night game, the Denver Nuggets cruised past the still-winless Detroit Pistons 109-97.

The Nuggets were led by point guard Ty Lawson, who scored 15 points and handed out nine assists, while center Greg Monroe scored 27 for the now 0-4 Pistons. EFE
