Game Story

CLEVELAND (Ticker) -- The worst road team in the NBA prevailed over the worst home team. Jalen Rose scored 19 of his 28 points in the second half and Tyson Chandler and rookie Jay Williams added 20 apiece to lead the Chicago Bulls to just their third road win of the season, a 107-101 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers. After opening the season with a win at Boston, the Bulls lost 27 of 28 road games, including eight straight, before Tuesday's contest at the half-empty Gund Arena. "The reality of it is, obviously, we're not a very good road team," Rose said. "Record-wise, we're a better team than Cleveland, so personally I felt like this was a game we should win. Fortunately, we were able to step it up and get it done." High school phenom LeBron James was one of those in attendance at courtside to watch two teams headed to the draft lottery. The Bulls looked like anything but a lottery team in the first quarter, converting 16-of-24 shots for a season-high 39 points and building a 12-point advantage "I was happy with the way we came out," Bulls coach Bill Cartwright said. "We came out hard and established themselves and then we played with poise down the stretch." Chicago increased the lead to as many as 17 points on two occasions in the third quarter. But rookie Carlos Boozer highlighted a 12-2 run with a dunk and three-point play to pull the Cavs within 76-69 with 3:27 left. Boozer finished with 23 points on 11-of-15 shooting and 12 rebounds. His season high of 26 points came against Chicago in a 111-101 win on December 4. "He always plays good against us," said Williams, a teammate of Boozer's at Duke. "I have to talk to him about that. The thing about Carlos is that he works hard all the time." A three-point play by Eddy Curry gave Chicago a 91-80 lead with 9:56 remaining, but the Bulls missed their next seven shots and the Cavs closed to 94-92 on two free throws by Zydrunas Ilgauskas with 4:42 to go. But Rose, Williams and Chandler made all the big plays down the stretch. Rose drove past Darius Miles for a layup with 4:27 left and Williams hit 1-of-2 free throws after drawing a foul on Ilgauskas with 3:33 remaining to give the Bulls a 97-92 lead. After Cleveland's Ricky Davis made 1-of-2 free throws, Chandler dunked off a pass from Williams with 3:07 to play, increasing the advantage to 99-93. "Jason Williams did an incredible job of pushing the basketball," said Cavs coach Keith Smart, who is 2-10 since replacing John Lucas. A 3-pointer by Jumaine Jones pulled Cleveland within 103-101 with 54 seconds left. But Chandler had a follow dunk and Williams converted a pair of free throws with 27 seconds remaining. Wagner misfired on a 3-pointer and the Bulls dribbled out the clock. The fifth overall pick in the draft, Wagner finished with 18 points on 5-of-17 shooting. The league-worst Cavs (10-44) slipped to 7-19 at home with the loss. "I thought we played really well," Boozer said. "We fought them all the way to the end. We just came up a couple plays short of a victory." Afterwards, Smart took solace in the performance of Boozer, who left Duke after his junior year but was not picked until the second round. "You have to understand that he is going to be looking at a 13-year career like Tyrone Hill," Smart said. "He does it because of his energy. He doesn't need plays called for him. His effort put him into position to play tonight." Chandler's play has the Bulls excited. He was one of the runners-up for the Eastern Conference Player of the Week award after averaging 17.3 points, 15.3 rebounds and 5.3 rebounds in his previous three games. On Tuesday, the second overall pick in the 2001 draft had 20 points, nine rebounds and two blocked shots. "I want to make the All-Star team in the future," Chandler said. "I definitely feel I can make it in a couple of years. Playing against Ilgauskas is a good test." Ilgauskas, who was selected to the All-Star team, had 11 points and eight rebounds.
