Victor Oladipo started postgame interview with 10 push-ups after leading Pacers to win

Indiana Pacers guard Victor Oladipo (4) shoots over Chicago Bulls forward Bobby Portis (5) during the second half of an NBA basketball game in Indianapolis, Wednesday, Dec. 6, 2017.

The Pacers trailed the Bulls by as much as 17 points on Monday, and a loss to a 3-19 Chicago team would have been disappointing for IN, a team IN the thick of the Eastern Conference playoff chase.

IN trailed by as many as 17 points on Wednesday and by 15 points in the fourth quarter before mounting a major rally.

But the Bulls answered once again, closing the frame with an 8-2 run to take an 83-69 lead into the fourth quarter. Myles Turner had 11 points and blocked four shots, and Thaddeus Young finished with 10 points and nine rebounds. "Victor made some big shots in that fourth quarter and that transition three to put us ahead, it just shows the confidence that he's playing with". Meanwhile, the Pacers chipped away, getting seven points from Bojan Bogdanovic in the decisive run - including a thunderous dunk to draw in to within 94-92 - to set the stage for Oladipo's clutch play. "I thought tonight we had high energy on the defensive end of the floor". But, he missed one of his two free throws with 12 seconds left.

Bojan Bogdanovic had 17 points for IN (14-11), and Darren Collison finished with 14.

Lauri Markkanen missed a potential game-winning 3-pointer in the final seconds of Chicago's 10th straight loss.

Dunn led the Bulls with 18 points, six boards, and six assists. The Bulls are getting solid play from second-year point guard Kris Dunn, who led the team with 15 points on Monday and scored in double figures in 13 of the last 18 contests. The Bulls went 7 for 15 from beyond the arc on their way to a 55-39 halftime lead. Instead, Indiana just got going late.

The Bulls (3-20) came in averaging a league-low 95 points per game and shooting a league-worst 41 percent from the field.

Up next is their toughest opponent on the six-game slate, a Friday showdown with the red-hot Cleveland Cavaliers, who are now on a 13-game winning streak.
