The Bulls overcame a 36-point performance by Rasheed Wallace to pick up their first win Thursday night, beating the Pistons 97-93, the AP reports. Tyrus Thomas, who had 19 points and 14 rebounds, hit a free throw with 2.9 seconds left to seal the deal. Elsewhere:
- Richard Jefferson scored 25 points on the way to an 87-85 Nets win over the Wizards. Washington is now 0-4.
- The Mavericks got a small measure of revenge against the Warriors, beating them 120-115. It was the Warriors who shocked the league and knocked the Mavs out of the playoffs last season.
