Game Story

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- Although it has not been said often over the last decade, it is now fair to say the Los Angeles Clippers are improving.

Michael Olowokandi scored a season-high 21 points to lead seven Clippers in double-figures as Los Angeles eclipsed its win total from all of last season with a 102-82 rout of the reeling Chicago Bulls.

"Offensively, on any given night, somebody is going to step up and have a big game and we're going to go to them," said Olowokandi, who had just six points in Los Angeles' win Saturday. "It can be any guy on any night and that's a luxury that we enjoy on this basketball team."

Rookies Keyon Dooling and Quentin Richardson had 13 apiece and Lamar Odom contributed 12, 10 rebounds, and seven assists for the Clippers, who notched their 16th victory of the season and their first three-game winning streak since December 22-26, 1999.

"Tonight, we had seven guys in double-figures and that leads me to believe we're playing as a team," Clippers coach Alvin Gentry said. "I thought we did a good job of moving the basketball. I was pleased with the way the guys played off the bench."

In addition, the Clippers snapped a 10-game home losing streak to Chicago, claiming its first victory over the Bulls in Los Angeles since November 16, 1989.

"We really needed a win like this," Richardson said. "This is our third straight good win for us and gives us a chance to go 4-0 into the All-Star break with a win at Golden State (on Wednesday)."

Elton Brand had 18 points and 15 rebounds and Ron Mercer chipped in 15 points for Chicago, which extended its franchise-record losing streak to 15 games. The Bulls have not won since a victory on January 4, and are winless on the road since December 13 -- a span of 13 games.

"Mentally and physically it's tough," said Brand of the losing streak. "We are just playing hard and trying to get a win before the All-Star break."

Chicago coach Tim Floyd and his assistant Phil Johnson were not around to see his team's 41st loss. Floyd was ejected while arguing a call in the second quarter and Johnson was tossed for a dispute with 8:04 remaining in the game.

"I thought our guy got fouled on his drive to the basket and I was arguing my point," Floyd said. "I know why I got the first technical but I thought I received the second one too quickly."

Eric Piatkowski's jumper gave the Clippers a 70-59 advantage with 2:19 left in the third quarter but the Bulls went on a 11-4 spurt to close within 74-70 with 9:38 remaining.

Los Angeles responded with a 21-4 run to push its lead to 95-74 following Richardson's free throw with 2:24 to go. The Clippers shot 60 percent (21-for-35) from the field in the second half and 56 percent (41-for-73) for the game.

Piatkowski and Corey Maggette each contributed 11 points and rookie Darius Miles had 10 and seven rebounds for Los Angeles, which outscored Chicago in the paint, 58-32, and held a 44-40 edge in rebounding.

"The three-game winning streak -- we're excited about that," Piatkowski said. "That was the most important thing. I was really worried before the game because in the post we'd win a big game and then the next night give it away to a team we should beat. Granted, there's not a lot of teams that come in here that we say we should flat out win, but this was one of them. I was hoping we wouldn't put too much pressure on ourselves."

Ron Artest and rookie Marcus Fizer had nine points apiece for the Bulls, who shot 34 percent (29-for-86) and yielded 20 points off 13 turnovers.
