Game Story

TORONTO (Ticker) -- Rookie Ben Gordon found his groove once the Toronto Raptors ran out of gas. Gordon scored 15 of his 17 points in the fourth quarter and Kirk Hinrich tied a career high with six 3-pointers as the Chicago Bulls posted a 121-115 victory over the Raptors. The Raptors never led but fought back to forge a 90-90 tie with 31 seconds to go in the third period on a jumper by Chris Bosh, who scored 28 points. Hinrich's sixth 3-pointer in the waning seconds put Chicago ahead by three entering the fourth quarter. Gordon, who has scored at least 10 points in the final period 14 times this season, took over thereafter, making his first five shots in the period to give the Bulls a 106-98 edge with just over six minutes remaining. "Ben has had so many fourth quarters like that," Bulls coach Scott Skiles said. "Now you kind of just expect it from him. He hits tough shots and our guys rely on him for that, and he had another big fourth quarter." A basket by rookie Luol Deng built Chicago's lead to 113-100 three minutes later. Toronto made one final push, drawing within eight on Rafer Alston's layup with 2:19 left before Gordon's dagger 3-pointer all but sealed the victory. Hinrich scored 28 points before exiting late in the fourth quarter with a jammed right index finger for the Bulls, who shot 58 percent (44-of-76) from the floor and set season highs for points in the first quarter (37), first half (62) and game. Prior to making 6-of-8 from the arc in this one, Hinrich had made just 3-of-11 3-pointers in his previous three games. "I've been shooting the ball with confidence but without results, and tonight was a breakout game for me," Hinrich said. X-rays after the game on Hinrich's finger were negative, but did reveal a severe sprain, which could affect his participation in the Rookie-Sophomore Challenge during All-Star weekend. "Hopefully I will be able to tape them up and I'll be all right," Hinrich said. "I might not be as effective, but I will still be there. I'm still planning on going unless the trainers tell me otherwise." Jalen Rose scored 25 points and Alston added 21 for the Raptors, who also set a season high for points in a game but dropped their seventh straight matchup with the Bulls - their longest current losing streak against any opponent. "We just didn't stop them," Bosh said. "There wasn't much defense in the game." "To start the game down 10-0, we fight to get back into the game," Rose said. "The same thing happened in the third quarter. It's hard when we have to fight from so far behind." Eddy Curry scored eight of his 25 points as the Bulls opened the game with a 15-4 run and took a 37-34 lead after 12 minutes. "We got off to slow start and that really is becoming our Achilles heel," Rose said. The Raptors rallied behind former Bull Donyell Marshall, who contributed 11 of his 17 points in the first half as Toronto drew within 62-58 at the break. Chicago began the second half the same way it started the first, as rookie Chris Duhon hit two of his four 3-pointers in a 13-4 spurt that gave the Bulls a 75-62 advantage three minutes into the third period. "Every time we made a run they were able to push through it," Marshall said. Duhon had 12 points and eight assists for the Bulls, who have won four of their last five games. "We're heading into the break with a lot of momentum," Skiles said. "The schedule is tough when we get back but this is a resilient group of guys."
