CHICAGO -- Jimmy Butler and the Chicago Bulls were pushed by the Orlando Magic in the third quarter, and their response delighted coach Fred Hoiberg.Butler scored 20 points, Taj Gibson had 16 points and 11 rebounds, and the Bulls routed the Magic 112-80 on Monday night.Dwyane Wade also scored 16 points and Doug McDermott finished with 11 for Chicago, which had dropped three straight. Wade went 7 for 12 from the field in 25 minutes, bouncing back nicely from a dismal four-point performance in Saturdays 111-94 loss at Indiana.The Bulls held the Magic to 23 percent shooting and 28 points in the second half.Were not going to win too many ballgames if our defense is not doing what it did, Wade said.Orlando had won three straight, but it played listless defense as Chicago pulled away in the third quarter. Aaron Gordon scored 15 points for the Magic, and Evan Fournier added 13 on 6-for-12 shooting.I just think our defense wasnt there, Gordon said. And then offensively, because our defense wasnt there, we didnt execute as well. Our defense bled into our offense.Butler was a perfect 10 for 10 as the Bulls went 25 for 31 at the free-throw line, compared to 5 for 6 for the Magic. The Bulls have made at least 20 free throws in their last four games and five of their first seven.We scored the ball decently well, Butler said. But whenever were guarding we make the game a lot easier for ourselves.Chicago led by as many as 17 points in the first half, but Gordon had a cutting dunk and Fournier made a 3-pointer to help Orlando close to 63-58 in the third.The Bulls then ripped off the next 13 points, and the Magic never threatened again. Gibson, Rajon Rondo and Robin Lopez closed the run with three straight layups, making it 76-58 with 6:05 left.We turned the ball over too much and they made all the hustle plays, Orlando coach Frank Vogel said. If youre going to win on the road, you have to make all the hustle plays and you have to take care of the ball.McDermott and Butler each converted a three-point play to help Chicago to an 88-63 lead heading into the final period. The Magic shot 4 for 21 in the third and committed six turnovers in the quarter.Thats the defensive mindset that we have to have for the entire game, Hoiberg said.TIP-INSMagic: Nikola Vucevic had 11 points and six rebounds. ... The Magic shot 39 percent (33 for 85) from the field. ... Asked about the discrepancy at the line, Vogel responded: I have no comments, we will discuss that through proper channels.Bulls: Isaiah Canaan provided some energy off the bench and finished with 10 points. ... Butler had seven assists and five rebounds. ... The Bulls outrebounded the Magic 56-39.FAST STARTThe Bulls used a 15-0 run to grab a 37-24 lead after one. The first quarter has been key for Chicago so far this season.The Bulls allowed 20 points in the first quarter in each of their first three games, all wins. They allowed at least 31 in each of the previous three games, all losses.Its as simple as that, Hoiberg said. Need to get off to a good start. When we do that we generally play a good game.COMING UPThe Bulls picked up a little momentum heading into a difficult stretch. Eight of Chicagos next nine games are on the road, including Wades return to Miami on Thursday night after he signed with his hometown Bulls in the offseason.UP NEXTMagic: Host Minnesota on Wednesday night. The Magic have won five straight and 13 of 15 against the Timberwolves.Bulls: Visit Atlanta on Wednesday night.

Melbourne are confident Cameron Munster has all the right attributes to make a successful transition from fullback to five-eighth next NRL season.With Billy Slater set to return from injury to reclaim the fullback role, Munster will be given first crack at the No.6 jersey vacated by Blake Green who signed with Manly.While his experience as playmaker is limited to junior football, the grand finalists believe the 22-year-old will be a natural.Hes a very good athlete but hes an out-and-out footballer and thats why were very confident hes going to make the transition, Storm football manager Frank Ponissi said.Hes certainly got all the attributes - hes got terrific game sense, hes very, very tough, resilient and he loves to be in the game which is everything you want about your ball-player at No.6.When he was playing with Melbourne, Souths Test superstar Greg Inglis was converted from centre to a five-eighth during the 2007-08 seasons, although neveer really looked at home.dddddddddddde did however score two tries and win the Clive Churchill medal in the Storms 2007 grand final win over Manly.It wasnt Gregs preferred position but when he needed to turn on one he could but they are a different type of player,, Ponissi said.He believed Munster would have an advantage over Inglis of having a far more experienced Cooper Cronk playing alongside him at halfback, while Slater playing at the back would also assist.Coopers a different player now to what he was back then, Ponissi said.If youre going to make your transition from fullback to No.6 at NRL level I couldnt think of a better halfback to make it with as it will take an enormous amount of pressure off him.Cronk such a dominant person and great communicator it will be like having a coach for Cameron on the field.
