The Bulls slogged through a rare listless loss this season, falling to the Pacers, 105-87, Friday night at United Center.
Bobby Portis' 20 points and 11 rebounds led the Bulls, who shot 39.8 percent. Kris Dunn finished with 16 points and five assists and played twice as much as starter Jerian Grant.
The minor aches and pains that sidelined Lauri Markkanen and Robin Lopez during Wednesday's practice are in the past. Both players played without restrictions and though Markkanen shot 5 for 14, he posted his third double-double (12 points, 10 rebounds).
The Pacers, led by Victor Oladipo's 25 points, snapped a four-game skid.
Never miss a local story.
Bojan Bogdanovic added 22 points for the Pacers.
