During a first quarter in which no one was finding offense—Chicago and Orlando combined for 26 points through 10:39—Carlos Boozer was tremendous. When he wasn't working the ball inside for two, he was forcing his man out to the perimeter.
Unfortunately, Boozer picked up two fouls in less than a minute's time.
As the game progressed, Boozer was a quality source of offense on a night in which Chicago failed to get anything going until the final period of play. Even as he struggled with turnovers, Boozer helped space the floor and draw Nikola Vucevic out of the paint.
This was a key to Chicago's fourth-quarter run, as Vucevic found it difficult to recover and crash the boards.
Furthermore, Boozer did an excellent job of moving the basketball. Whether it was out of the high post or along the perimeter, he consistently found teammates in position for open looks.
The play of the game, however, came as Boozer hit the ball out of Vucevic's hands to force a turnover with less than a minute remaining.
