Pacers beat Chicago at Bankers Life, 96-90

New Bulls coach had team running suicides in practice Pacers get past Chicago, 96-90

IN is now 5-1 at home against Eastern Conference foes.

In a surprise, longtime organizational fixture and assistant coach Randy Brown resigned in between Tuesday's morning shootaround and the game against the Pacers after new Bulls coach Jim Boylen asked Brown to take a lesser role on the staff.

Jim Boylen's first game as Bulls head coach wasn't pretty. Four of Indiana's five starters scored in double figures, combining for 71 of the Pacers' 96 points. The only teams with worse records were Cleveland and Phoenix.

The Indiana Pacers aren't picky or anxious about style points.

As well as his double-digit points tally, Turner also chipped in with 11 rebounds and 3 assists.

Darren Collison had 23 points and eight rebounds, Bojan Bogdanovic scored 14 points and Tyreke Evans finished with 10 for Indiana.

Portis has played in only four games this season, but was very solid, averaging 10.5 points, 10 rebounds, and a block per game.

Boylen meanwhile praised his team's character - but pointedly warned that fitness levels need to improve.

"Shawn is in charge of our player development and I feel it is vital that he is on our bench with our players", said Boylen.

"I think Coach Brown felt from his position that it was something he couldn't do, so I give him credit for that". That's a big, physical team. But I'm not discouraged. "I'm disappointed Randy has made this decision, but I understand he has to do what is best for him", said Boylen. "It's going to change".

Orlando held the Heat to 24 percent shooting in the third (5-21) and the Magic didn't commit a turnover in the period. Justin Holiday, facing off against his brother, IN rookie Aaron Holiday, finished with 15 points.

Terrence Ross added 19 off the bench for the Magic, who were 14 for 28 from 3-point range.

Miami veteran Dwyane Wade accused his teammates of complacency following the defeat, which had followed consecutive wins over New Orleans and Utah. We've got games to play and we've got players to develop. "I thought our offense stunk".

Although Hoiberg never really got to incorporate his offensive ideas, the goal was to play an up-tempo style that produced good shots early in the clock.

Whiteside left the Heat bench with 40.5 seconds left and walked to the locker room. He spent the 2015-16 as Chicago's video coordinator, after having coached at the University of Southern Mississippi and Iowa State.

"It's our inability to sustain", Spoelstra said.

In Dallas, Mavericks ace Luka Doncic led the way in a 111-102 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers. Chicago is 2-11 in its last 13 games.

The Suns are now propping up the Western Conference with a 4-20 record, the worst record in the National Basketball Association.
