Rose, Bulls end Pacers' perfection with win

CHICAGO — Luol Deng scored 23 points, Derrick Rose added 20 points and the Chicago Bulls knocked off the NBA's last unbeaten team with a 110-94 win over the Indiana Pacers on Saturday night.

Taj Gibson had 15 points and eight rebounds for Chicago (5-3), which won its fourth straight game behind 11-of-19 shooting from 3-point range.

Rose was 6 for 11 from beyond the arc in 30 minutes after missing a game with a sore right hamstring.

Roy Hibbert led Indiana (9-1) with 14 points and 10 rebounds. Paul George, who averaged 24.6 points per game coming in, was held to 12 points.

Indiana was the NBA's first 9-0 team since the 2002-03 Dallas Mavericks, who won 14 games to start the season.
