Game Story

CHICAGO (Ticker) -- What started out like a typical road trip for the Los Angeles Clippers turned into what could be a turning point for the youngest team in the Western Conference.

After dropping the first four games of their seven-game road trip, the Clippers have run off three straight wins, concluding the trip with a 93-80 victory over the Chicago Bulls.

Los Angeles had five players in double figures and shot 49 percent (35-of-72) from the field, breaking open the game in the fourth quarter and cruising to its first three-game road winning streak since April 1997.

Guard Eric Piatkowski is the only current Clipper who was on the team duing its last three-game road winning streak.

Lamar Odom had 14 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists for Los Angeles. Jeff McInnis had 17 points and six assists and Sean Rooks scored 12 points on 6-of-8 shooting off the bench for the Clippers.

Piatkowski and rookie Darius Miles scored 14 points apiece and combined to make 10-of-15 shots from the floor for Los Angeles, which captured its second win in its last 20 trips to Chicago and is showing some team unity.

"We all need to help each other and on the court and point out something any of us might be doing wrong," Miles said. "We spend a lot of time together off the court and we are very close. We play together and have fun and it's great when we win games like this."

Chicago had 42-41 lead at halftime, but Los Angeles took control for good midway through the third quarter. Piatkowski drained a 3-pointer from the left sideline to give the Clippers the lead for good, 50-49, with 6:31 to go.

Los Angeles procceded to close the quarter with a 12-5 run, giving them a 64-56 lead heading into the fourth period. McInnis capped the burst when he sank a 12 footer with 23 seconds left in the third quarter.

Chicago never got closer than five the rest of the way and led by as many as 18 when Quentin Richardson made two free throws to put the Clippers ahead, 89-71, with 2:11 to play.

The Clippers shot 64 percent (21-of-33) in the second half and outscored the Bulls, 52-38, after halftime.

"We came out there looser and ready to play," Richardson said. "In the second half we did a lot of smiling out there. We picked it up defensively and now we realize we play our best ball when we do that."

The Bulls' offense faltered, shooting just 30 percent (25-of-82) overall and 31 percent (5-of-16) from the arc.

"We had a real struggle in the second half, offensively and defensively," Chicago coach Tim Floyd said. "We had 18 missed shots from six or seven feet."

Fred Hoiberg led Chicago with a career-high 22 points and nailed 4-of-6 from 3-point range. Elton Brand had 17 points and 16 rebounds but made just 7-of-21 shots for the Bulls, who have lost three straight since a two-game winning streak snapped a franchise-record 17-game skid.

Chicago played without injured guard Ron Mercer and forward Ron Artest, who is serving a one-game suspension for his involvement in altercation with Milwaukee forward Glenn Robinson.

"Our two best perimeter scorers and two best perimeter defenders were out tonight," Hoiberg said. "There was nothing we could do."

"They lose Artest, who I think is one of the best defenders in the league at his position and the scoring of Ron Mercer, it's a lot to overcome," Gentry said. "We just came out in the second half and made our shots."

The 19-year-old Miles actually had some advise for the league-worst Bulls.

"We've learned more than they have," Miles said. "The Bulls need to talk to each other more. The roles on our team and what we each have to do is undertsood. It's not new to us as what we have to do to be a team."
