Forward Carlos Boozer was scoring inside and outside, grabbing rebounds and passing to teammates for easy baskets. It was the kind of performance that can make fans begin to forget about his often-ineffective play last postseason.

Boozer earned a measure of redemption after a mediocre exhibition opener by scoring a team-high 24 points to go with seven rebounds and three assists in the Bulls' 93-85 victory Tuesday against the Indiana Pacers at the United Center.
