Game Recap: Bulls 85, Magic 59

No. That score is not a typo. You’re not imagining it. It really happened. The Magic eked out only 59 points. At home.

“John Lucas III powers Bulls past Heat” That’s the title of the AP recap of last night’s win over the Heat. I never thought those words would be strung together in the English language.
