CHICAGO -- The Chicago Bulls put on an impressive performance on Tuesday night and beat the visiting Indiana Pacers, 104-89, at the United Center.
Zach LaVine and Justin Holiday each fired 22 points while Bobby Portis pulled in 20 points and six boards. Jabari Parker, who signed a two-year $40 million contract during the off-season, contributed 11 markers.
It was the second win in four preseason games for the Bulls, who made 38 of 95 field goals (40 percent) and 13 of 30 threes (43.3 percent).
Chicago went on a hot start and jumped to a 34-17 advantage after one quarter. The Pacers made a 20-13 fourth quarter run but it fell short as the Bulls entered the final 12 minutes with a 91-69 bubble.
Thaddeus Young was solid for the Pacers with 16 points and 10 rebounds but All-Star Viktor Oladipo settled for just 12 points as he made only four of 15 shots. Oladipo also struggled with seven turnovers.
