Game Story

CHICAGO (Ticker) -- Trying for their first winning streak of the season, the Chicago Bulls wasted no time putting together one of their most embarrassing losses.

The Bulls suffered a 104-70 setback to the Milwaukee Bucks as they were outcored in every quarter and absorbed their worst home loss of the season.

The Bucks (17-13) outscored the Bulls in every quarter on their way to their biggest margin of victory this season.

Glenn Robinson scored 21 points and Tim Thomas scored 20 for the Bucks, who had six players in double figures and raced to their biggest win of the season. Ray Allen added 16 points.

All five Milwaukee starters scored in double figures and Lindsey Hunter added 10 off the bench. Scott Williams, who played with Chicago's championship teams from 1991-93, pulled down 11 rebounds for the Bucks.

Robinson scored 13 points in the first quarter as Milwaukee opened with a 22-4 run and led 38-15 after 12 minutes. The Bulls never recovered and got no closer than 17 points the rest of the way.

"I think if we go back and look at the tape tomorrow the first five minutes will pretty much tell the story," Bulls coach Tim Floyd said. "We missed shots early and did not compete on the other end."

Chicago (5-26) missed its first eight shots and scored just four points in the first seven minutes. Elton Brand scored 17 points and Ron Mercer added 16 for the Bulls, who had no other players in double figures.

Chicago shot just 33 percent (26-of-77) from the floor. Ron Artest was held scoreless, missing all six shots, and Corey Benjamin was just 1-for-10 off the bench.

The Bulls were booed often late in the game by the United Center crowd, who seemed more annoyed with the team's lack of effort.

"I can understand the fans' frustration," Floyd said. "There is no explanation for (the Bulls) coming out and not competing every night."

The win put the Bucks four games over .500 for the first time this season and they are finally looking like the team many predicted would win the Central Division title. The team has only lost four games since November 25 and seems to be heading towards the playoffs.

"Our players understand that we had a good December and if we can have another good month in January we can establish ourselves to win the division," Milwaukee coach George Karl said.

The Bucks improved to 7-8 on the road as it beat Chicago for the seventh time in nine meetings. Chicago fell to 3-12 at home and 1-8 against Central Division rivals.
