Bulls Vs. Magic Recap: Orlando Woeful On Offense In 85-59 Loss To Chicago

The Chicago Bulls made franchise history on Monday night, holding the Orlando Magic to just 59 points in throttling at the Amway Center. It was the Bulls fourth straight win in Orlando, and they dominated from the jump without the reigning MVP Derrick Rose. The Bulls were absolutely perfect on the defensive end, holding the Magic to just nine assists for the entire 48 minutes. Orlando shot just 35 percent from the floor, and capped three horrendous quarters with an 11-point fourth quarter.

Dwight Howard and Ryan Anderson were the only Magic players in double figures. Howard had 18 points and 10 rebounds in a sub-standard performance for the All-Star. And yet Howard was the only one who did anything on the offensive end for Stan Van Gundy. This gif pretty much sums of the evening for Orlando:
