Magic shoot 59 percent in 121-114 victory over Bulls

Nikola Vucevic had 33 points and 11 rebounds, and the Orlando Magic shot 59 percent from the field in a 121-114 victory over the Chicago Bulls on Monday night.

Victor Oladipo also scored 33 points in Orlando's first win in Chicago since an 83-82 victory on Dec. 16, 2013. The Magic had lost three in a row and 12 of 15 against the Bulls since the start of the 2010-11 season.

Vucevic was 16 for 24 from the field in his NBA-best 23rd double-double of the season. The terrific performance for the 7-foot center included a drive and left-handed dunk over forward Pau Gasol late in third period.

Gasol paced Chicago with 28 points and 14 rebounds, and Derrick Rose had 18 points and seven assists.
