CHICAGO (AP) — Michael Porter Jr. scored a season-high 31 points to lead the Denver Nuggets to a 126-103 victory over the Chicago Bulls.

Bulls leading scorer DeMar DeRozan didn't take his first shot until midway through the second quarter but finished with 16 points. Zach LaVine led the Bulls with 21 points.

The Bulls trailed 43-39 before the Nuggets embarked on a 19-8 run to close out the first half.

Andre Drummond became the 52nd center in NBA history and the eighth Bulls center to reach the 10,000-point mark.
