(WSCR) – Carlos Boozer got his first start with the Bulls Wednesday against Orlando. Boozer performed like he hadn’t played in a while and the Bulls suffered a 107-78 loss.

CHICAGO (AP) Jameer Nelson scored 24 points and the Orlando Magic dominated the paint and cruised to a 107-78 victory over Chicago on Wednesday night, spoiling the Bulls debut of forward Carlos Boozer.

Boozer played his first game of the season after missing all of Chicago’s preseason games plus the first 15 of the regular season after breaking the fifth metatarsal in his right hand in an accident at his home on Oct. 2.

He looked like a player who hadn’t played in a while. Tentative most of the game, Boozer finished with five points and two rebounds in 22 minutes, shooting 2 for 5 from the floor.

Vince Carter scored 22 points for Orlando, Brandon Bass had 17 off the bench and Nelson added nine assists.
