CHICAGO -- Luol Deng had 29 points and eight rebounds to lead the Chicago Bulls to 102-74 preseason victory over the Indiana Pacers on Friday night.

Derrick Rose added 14 points and six assists for the Bulls (4-4) in their final preseason game before Wednesday night's opener at the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Indiana Pacers President of Basketball Operations Larry Bird watched the blowout from a few rows behind the bench.

Darren Collison and Roy Hibbert both had 14 point for Indiana (3-4), which played without Danny Granger and T.J. Ford.

The Pacers open the season at San Antonio on Wednesday.

Deng finished the half with 17 points and Rose added 11.

It was the second straight game the Pacers were without Granger and Ford. Granger sprained his left ankle and Ford didn't play because of a strained right hamstring.
