Game Story

CHICAGO (Ticker) -- No matter what they did, the Chicago Bulls still couldn't prevent Jason Terry from making big plays on their home court.

Terry shook off some poor shooting to score 22 points, including a running jumper that dashed any hopes of a rally by the Bulls, as the Atlanta Hawks surpassed last season's win total with an 102-96 victory.

Atlanta led by double digits for most of the fourth quarter before Chicago cut it to 96-91 with 1:26 left on a pair of foul shots by Marcus Fizer.

But Chicago could get no closer thereafter. Following a timeout, Terry dribbled around three defenders and made his toughest shot of the night with 1:15 remaining to seal Atlanta's 26th win.

"That's what Jason does," said Hawks forward Shareef Abdur-Rahim, who scored 25 points. "He makes things happen. Both of us want the ball, but I and the rest of the team have confidence in him."

It was the second time this season that Terry came up with a big play at the United Center. On December 15, Terry was left wide-open for a game-winning dunk in Atlanta's 80-79 triumph.

Chicago began to make its move with 5:02 left following a 3-pointer by Fred Hoiberg and a dunk by teenage rookie Tyson Chandler, who converted the subsequent free throw and cut the deficit to 88-79.

The Hawks continued to have difficulties closing out the Bulls. Abdur-Rahim threw the ball away and Jalen Rose converted an easy layup to make it 88-81 with 4:37 left.

"It was a good for win us," said Atlanta coach Lon Kruger. "Anytime you win on the road, it's great. We played with that margin all night long. We got ahead but we could never really get comfortable.

"Chicago made it very tough for us down the stretch. I would prefer that we not lose a lead, but we also need to learn how to play with a lead and do a better job of holding it."

But with a chance to reduce the deficit even further, Fizer and Rose missed 20-foot jump shots on consecutive possessions and the Bulls were down, 90-83, with 2:50 to go.

On the one-month anniversary of the seven-player trade that brought Rose to Chicago from Indiana, he finished with 26 points on 10-of-13 shooting.

Rose led the Bulls in scoring for the 11th time. But since winning four of six games following the trade, Chicago is 1-9.

"We did not do a good job of taking pride in our effort," Rose said. "We got to take pride in our effort, not necessarily on defense, but the effort overall. Competing is more than just who wins the game."

"I was hoping that as a team we were past this point, especially at this point in the season where we could come out and play smart defensively and be solid offensively," added Chicago coach Bill Cartwright. "We did not do that. You can attribute it to whatever you want to. We just did not come out the same way we did against Houston."
