Bulls squeak by Cavs 86-85

LUOL Deng scored 15 points and helped stop LeBron James on a drive in the final seconds as the Chicago Bulls ended Cleveland's three-game winning streak with an 86-85 win over the Cavaliers yesterday.

Derrick Rose had 14 points and 11 assists and John Salmons added 14 points for the Bulls, who handed the Cavs their second loss at home. Cleveland, which lost to Boston in its opener, only lost two regular-season games and went 45-3 at Quicken Loans Arena last season.

James, who led the Cavaliers with 25 points, lost the ball out of bounds with 3.2 seconds to go after powering his way to the hoop. Shaquille O'Neal had 14 points and 10 rebounds for Cleveland.

Jazz 113, Spurs 99

At Salt Lake City, Utah, Carlos Boozer ended his slump with 27 points and 14 rebounds as Utah beat San Antonio to snap a two-game losing skid.

Deron Williams also scored 27 and had nine assists in Utah's first win over San Antonio since April 2008. Andrei Kirilenko added 12 points and six assists and rookie Wesley Matthews scored a career-high 12 points for Utah, which improved to 2-3.

Tim Duncan had 15 points and 13 rebounds and Tony Parker had 21 points, but scored just four in the second half as the Spurs couldn't overcome the Jazz's shooting.

Boozer finished 12 for 20 from the field and the Jazz went 44 for 83.
