Game Story

HOUSTON (Ticker) -- In the end, the Houston Rockets just could not stop Jalen Rose.

Rose scored a career-high 44 points -- including the game-winning jumper at the buzzer -- as the Chicago Bulls ended an eight-game losing streak with a 114-112 double-overtime triumph over the Rockets.

Kenny Thomas scored the first four points of the second extra period to give the Rockets a 110-106 lead with 3:35 left.

Travis Best hit a jumper and Rose hit a bank shot and a jumper while falling backward to give the Bulls a 112-110 lead with 48 seconds to go before Cuttino Mobley tied the game with a fadeaway in the paint with 23 seconds left.

After the Rockets used a spare foul on Rose to force an inbounds play with 2.5 seconds to go, Rose received the ball near midcourt, spun to his left and swished a jumper from the left elbow. Replays indicated Rose did not release the ball in time, but it also appeared as though the Rockets got away with a foul on him.

"I was more worried that my arm got grabbed and that a foul wasnít going to be called (than about the clock)," Rose said. "But that shot went in and we got the win. Thatís all you need."

"If theyíre shooting after the buzzer goes off, Iíd say thatís pretty good defense," said the Rockets' Walt Williams. "I think thatís enough to stop Ďem."

Rose was 18-of-34 from the field and had a season-high 11 rebounds and Marcus Fizer added 20 points for the Bulls, who snapped a seven-game road losing streak.

"It really felt good to hit that shot, but it felt really good to beat a team that was shooting that well," Rose said. "It was like an old-school shotoout tonight."

Both teams shot 46 percent overall, although the Bulls sank 55 percent (6-of-11) from the arc, while the Rockets converted just 22 percent (4-of-18).

Mobley scored 37 points, Thomas added 24 and Moochie Norris 10 and a career-high 17 assists for the Rockets, who played without All-Star guard Steve Francis, who did not dress because of persistent headaches.

"We played hard," Mobley said. "I ainít got nothiní else to say."

Rose and Mobley dueled through the fourth quarter. Rose scored 19 points in the period, including a pair of free throws to give the Bulls a 97-96 lead with 55 seconds left. Mobley, who had 16 in the period, made a basket with 32 seconds to go to give the Rockets a one-point lead.

Fizer made only 1-of-2 free throws to tie the game at 98 with eight seconds left. Norris missed a jumper just before the buzzer and the teams went to overtime.

Norris hit a 3-pointer with 12 seconds left in the first extra session to give Houston a 105-104 lead. Thomas hit 1-of-2 free throws with two seconds left after Rose missed a jumper in the paint.

But Best dribbled once to his right to create space from Norris and hit a jumper at the buzzer to extend the game another five minutes.

"I thought we really hustled tonight," Bulls coach Bill Cartwright said. "We lost Tyson (Chandler) at halftime to the flu, so we knew we were going to be a little shorthanded. But we all contributed and stepped up when we had to. Travis really played well down the stretch and really came up big with that three. And obviously, Jalen was Jalen."

The Bulls led at halftime, 52-51, but the Rockets limited them to 8-of-22 shooting in the third quarter and took a 77-72 lead into the fourth period.

Neither team held a double-digit lead in the contest, which featured 13 lead changes and 14 ties.

"It was a real exciting game, what can you say?" Rockets coach Rudy Tomjanovich said. "Lots of big plays from both teams. Too bad it had to end the way it did."
