Miami, FL (SportsNetwork. Arturo Vidal Bayern Munich Jersey .com) - Mike Dunleavy scored 19 of his 22 points in the third quarter and the Chicago Bulls beat the Miami Heat 93-75 on Sunday. Jimmy Butler added 17 points and Taj Gibson scored 15 with nine rebounds for the Central Division-leading Bulls, who have won three in a row and six of their last eight games. Derrick Rose had 14 points two days after pouring in a season-high 31 in a win over Portland, the first time the oft-injured former MVP topped 30 since March 12, 2012. Former Bull Luol Deng led Miami with 17 points and 10 rebounds and Dwyane Wade also scored 17. After holding the Heat under 30 percent shooting for a seven-point lead at halftime, the Bulls pulled away with a big third quarter. Dunleavys 19 points came on eight shots, including a trio of 3s. He missed just once from the field and made both of his free throws. Every night it can be someone different, said Rose. Butler had eight points in the quarter and Gibson scored the other six. One of Dunleavys 3s stretched Chicagos lead to 26 points near the end of the quarter and it was never closer than 15 the rest of the way. It was a tough second half, said Heat coach Erik Spoelstra. We came out flat. That was pretty clear. Heat center Chris Bosh (calf) missed a game for the first time this season and the Bulls took advantage early on, scoring mostly in the paint. Consecutive dunks by Gibson to open the game sparked a 10-2 run for the Bulls, who then scored just four points over the next nine-plus minutes as the Heat built a 20-14 lead early in the second quarter. But back-to-back 3s and eight straight points by Aaron Brooks started a 14-2 Bulls flurry that gave the visitors a 28-22 lead and they remained in front for the rest of the game.

Patrick Weihrauch Bayern Munich Jersey .com) - Ben Lovejoy tallied a goal and an assist as the Anaheim Ducks cruised into the All-Star break with a 6-3 victory against the Calgary Flames.METAIRIE, La. -- Roland "Champ" Bailey, who turns 36 next month, figures theres no use trying to fool anyone -- least of all himself -- about his age. As of now, hes the oldest every-down player on New Orleans roster; place kicker Shayne Graham is his only elder teammate. "If you put me on any team, Im always going to be the old guy," Bailey said. "Its just something Ive got to get used to." Preferring to avoid comparisons to the player he was several years ago, Baily is focusing on what he can do in 2014. Thats when the Saints relatively young and partly overhauled secondary will need his leadership, veteran savvy, and still formidable play-making skills. "One thing I dont want to do is look back or look too far ahead. Im taking care of whats in front of me. Thats getting in shape and getting to know my guys," Bailey said. "My first thing is to lead by example, show how hard I can work and try to lead that way. And all these guys -- I know I have a lot of experience and Im not going to shy away from telling them things I think they need to hear and making sure Im there for them when they have questions." Now entering his 16th NFL season, Bailey has been named to 12 Pro Bowls. His 52 career interceptions are the most among active players. He was among the more high-profile free-agent additions New Orleans made this off-season, along with safety Jairus Byrd. Unlike Bailey, Byrd is in the prime of his career, entering his sixth season with three Pro Bowls and 22 interceptions and 11 forced fumbles already to his name. Also unlike Bailey, Byrd was not available to participate in voluntary off-season practices this week because of back surgery. Coach Sean Payton said Byrds procedure to address a nagging problem with a disc should not sideline the safety beyond the start of training camp. "Its something that didnt need to be done, but both he and ourselves felt like it would be something that would prevent any issues in the fall," Payton said. "Our guess would be that well be real cautious ... and then hell start up training camp with no problem." Bailey, who last season missed 11 games with a left foot injjury, said he feels good now, and backed it up with his performance on the field. Patrick Weihrauch Jersey. During 11-on-11 drills, Bailey made a leaping breakup of Luke McCowns pass intended for Andy Tanner along the sideline. Later, Bailey tipped McCowns slant pass intended for Kenny Stills, resulting in an interception by linebacker Kyle Knox. "He looks fantastic," defensive co-ordinator Rob Ryan said. "You look out there and you think hes one of those young guys running around. But hes bringing excitement to our defence and knowledge and its awesome to add a great player like him." Quarterback Drew Brees recalled throwing an interception that Bailey returned for a 25-yard touchdown in 2005, when Brees was with San Diego and Bailey with Denver. The Broncos came back to win that game in large part because of Baileys play, and Brees said Baileys play-making was why game plans included "no-throw zones," whenever Denver was the opponent. "Certain routes, certain areas of the field, you just knew: Dont even think about it. Its not worth it," Brees recalled. The Saints hope Bailey will still come up with such plays while mentoring younger cornerbacks including 2010 first-round pick Patrick Robinson, who missed most of last season with a knee injury; rookie Stanley Jean-Baptiste, a second round pick; and third-year cornerback Corey White. Even Keenan Lewis, the Saints top cornerback, could benefit from Baileys presence. "Theres so much value in having a guy like that," Brees said. "Not only what he can teach our young guys, but just hes still and extremely productive player. ... He wouldnt have chosen the New Orleans Saints if he didnt think we had a legitimate shot here -- and that he could help us." Notes: In addition to Byrd, those missing practice included DT John Jenkins, DE Tyrunn Walker, WR Joseph Morgan and WR Brandin Cooks. Cooks was excused to finish the school year at Oregon State. Payton declined to address the conditions of Jenkins, Walker or Morgan, though Morgan wore a sleeve his left knee, which he injured last training camp, putting him out for the season.
