Game Story

CHICAGO (Ticker) -- Ron Artest scored 22 points and Brad Miller added 15 and 11 rebounds as the Chicago Bulls rallied in the fourth quareter to upset the Milwaukee Bucks for the second time this season, 96-92.

The Bucks led, 79-68, late in the third quarter before Eddie Curry dunked at the buzzer to get the Bulls within single digits entering the fourth period.

After Ray Allen hit a pair of free throws to make it 81-73 with 9:27 to go, the Bulls went on a 17-2 run that was capped by a baseline jumper by Miller with 3:16 left for a 90-83 advantage.

Milwaukee, which shot 16 percent (3-of-16) in the fourth quarter, got no closer than four points thereafter.

"I thought we played great most of the game," Bucks coach George Karl said. "We had a good game up until the fourth quarter. I don't know whether their defense or our lack of offense caused that. We just played well for three quarters and then stubbed our toe."

The Bucks shot 43 percent (32-of-74) overall, while the Bulls sank 44 percent (36-of-82). Milwaukee had converted 53 percent (29-of-55) entering the fourth quarter.

Chicago, the league's worst team at 12-36, has defeated the Central Division-leading Bucks (28-19) in two of their three meetings this season, including a 90-83 triumph here on December 31. The Bulls have won two games in a row and three of four.

Allen had 32 points to pace Milwaukee. Sam Cassell added 22 and Glenn Robinson 17 and nine rebounds for the Bucks, who are 2-6 in their last eight games.

"They always play us tough," Robinson said. "I don't know what it is, but they do it both here and in Milwaukee. They're a professional team and so they can beat anyone, whether it's us or LA."

Chicago entered the All-Star break with a shocking 97-89 win over the Los Angeles Lakers at the Staples Center last Wednesday. The Bulls have swept the two-time defending champions this season.

Milwaukee trailed by as many as eight points in the second quarter but rallied to take a 46-45 lead at halftime on Cassell's free throws with six seconds left.

Allen hit a 3-pointer with 10:13 left in the third quarter to give the Bucks a 52-50 lead and hit a nine-foot jumper with 47 seconds left to stake Milwaukee to its biggest edge, 77-66. He had 17 points in the third quarter.

"We seem to play good in the first two quarters, then miserable in the third, then get down nine or 12 points in the fourth quarter and still be able to come back and get the win," Miller said. "We believe we can come out and win these games. We don't give up and that (is) the thing that has gotten us some big wins."

The Bucks played without sixth man Tim Thomas, who was tending to his pregnant wife back in Milwaukee. Chicago's six reserves outscored Milwaukee's three-deep bench, 36-10.

"In the fourth quarter, I think by their effort, they wanted it more," Bucks forward Anthony Mason said. "We didn't execute like we had been when we got the lead. They gave us nothing down the stretch. If we were a less talented team, I'd have nothing to say. I think we're the best team in the East, though. We just have to be better in those areas of hustle to win."

Had the Bucks held onto their double-digit lead, they would have climbed within 2 1/2 games of the Eastern Conference-leading New Jersey Nets, who lost to Atlanta earlier in the evening.

"I am proud of the guys for fighting and hanging in," Bulls coach Bill Cartwright said. "I feel pretty good if we can do something at the end and make teams feel uncomfortable. We want to be known as a team you do not want to play because we are going to get after you and play hard. We hope to get back to that."

"Tonight we stayed with the plan and played Chicago Bulls defense," Artest said. "We never give up. We practice real hard and everybody is playing hard and that is how we play the game. Our confidence is high right now and the players think we can win every game. The thing is to stay focused."
