Luol Deng led all scorers with 28 points and Rodney Stuckey led the Pistons with 25 off the bench.
The Bulls got down 14-2 early on as they missed their first six shots from the floor and didn't make a field goal until about five minutes in. Detroit was really working Chicago on both ends, and it was looking as if the Bulls might be too shorthanded.
That didn't last long, however, as Chicago instantly climbed back into the game and eventually took the lead in the fourth quarter, its first lead since it was 1-0. Thanks to some big plays from Deng down the stretch, the Bulls were able to finish one step ahead of the Pistons.
Detroit ended the month of March 1-13. April Fool's Day couldn't come soon enough for them.
