CHICAGO – Luol Deng scored 18 points and Nazr Mohammed added 13 points and 12 rebounds to help the Bulls beat the Memphis Grizzlies, 92-88, in a preseason game Tuesday night.

Trailing 52-49 at half, the Bulls scored the first 14 points in the third quarter to pull away. Richard Hamilton made a jumper to give the Bulls a 63-52 lead and Nate Robinson made a 3 from the corner to extend the Bulls’ lead to 81-65 late in the third quarter. Hamilton scored eight points in the third quarter and finished with 13.
