Former Gator Joakim Noah had 14 points and a season-high 15 rebounds, and the Chicago Bulls beat the Indiana Pacers 108-95 on Wednesday night even though their two best players were injured.

At one point, Kirk Hinrich delivered a behind-the-back pass in transition to Noah for a dunk that drew a roar from the crowd.

‘‘We got a good win today, but at the same time, we can’t get too happy,’’ said Noah, who played the entire fourth quarter. ‘‘Right now, we’re a team that’s trying to get into the playoffs. We want to be there. And in order to do that, we have to be consistent.’’
