CLEVELAND, Ohio – D.J. Augustin scored 27 points to lead the Chicago Bulls to a 98-87 win over the Cavaliers on Wednesday night.

Augustin started the game in place of Kirk Hinrich and Taj Gibson matched a career high with 26 filling in for Carlos Boozer as the Bulls improved to 7-2 since trading Luol Deng.

Deng went just 2 of 11 from the field in his first game against Chicago. The Bulls dealt the two-time All-Star forward to Cleveland on Jan. 6 for future draft picks.

Augustin and Mike Dunleavy hit 3-pointers down the stretch to pace the Bulls, who at 21-20 moved over .500 for the first time since Nov. 22.

Joakim Noah had 18 rebounds for the Bulls, who appeared to be looking toward the future when they traded Deng after losing superstar Derrick Rose to a season-ending injury.

Kyrie Irving scored 26 to lead Cleveland, which has dropped the first two games of a five-game homestand.
