Game Story

CHICAGO (Ticker) -- Teenage rookie Eddy Curry had season highs of 19 points and 14 rebounds as the Chicago Bulls handed the Washington Wizards their seventh straight defeat, 90-81.

Marcus Fizer, who added 19 points and 10 boards, dunked to give Chicago a 79-69 advantage with 5:08 to play. Washington climbed within 80-79 on a pair of free throws by Richard Hamilton with 2:04 left, but Travis Best hit back-to-back jumpers to give the Bulls a five-point cushion with 80 seconds remaining.

Washington has lost both its games since Michael Jordan -- who led Chicago to six NBA championships in the 1980s -- was placed on the injured list and underwent arthroscopic knee surgery.

The Wizards jumped out to a 12-2 lead on a reverse layup by Hamilton with 7:40 remaining in the opening quarter. But the Bulls stormed back with a 32-8 run into the second quarter, taking the lead for good at 19-16 on a layup and free throw by Fizer with 1:!5 left in the first period.

Although the Bulls shot just 42 percent (33-of-79) from the field, they limited the Wizards to 37 percent (30-of-82).

Hamilton scored 30 points to pace Washington, which lost nine in a row earlier this season.

Curry matched his previous season highs in points (16) and rebounds (12) by halftime.

Fellow rookie 7-footer Tyson Chandler hyperextended his left pinky late in the first quarter, was given three stitches and did not return.
