The Chicago Bulls beat the Seattle SuperSonics 123-96 for their fifth win in the past seven games. It appears that the Bulls are finally getting back on track after a disappointing start. Ben Gordon had 27 points and six assists and Luol Deng added 20 for the Bulls, who shot 53.7 percent from the floor, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. "Our defense was not great tonight, but our offense more than made up for it," said coach Scott Skiles.
After stumbling out of the gate to a 2-10 start the Bulls are finally playing like the team many experts thought would compete for the Eastern Conference title. Chicago has a good chance to continue their winning ways this week, when they play the middling Pacers and then the miserable Knicks. Kevin Durant led the Sonics with 16 points.
