Game Story

CHICAGO (Ticker) -- With help from their "other" rookie guard, this time the Bulls put away the Bucks. Chris Duhon scored nine of his 13 points in the first half, had a season-high 10 assists and knocked down two free throws in the final 5.2 seconds to help the Chicago Bulls snap a three-game losing streak with a 90-85 victory against the Milwaukee Bucks. "I'm playing with a lot of confidence right now," Duhon said. "I'm not thinking out there. It starts on the defensive end. When I'm aggressive on defense it flows into the offensive end. I tried to let the game come to me. I'm not a guy who plays for the stats, I just want to win." In Saturday's contest against the Bucks in Milwaukee, the Bulls couldn't hold a five-point lead with four minutes to play and dropped a 95-87 decision, their 14th straight defeat at the Bradley Center. With star rookie sharpshooter Ben Gordon struggling, Duhon, who recorded his first double-double, knocked down three 3-pointers and handed out five assists as the Bulls took a 45-39 advantage at the half. During a 10-1 run over the final five minutes of the third period, Duhon had three assists, two resulting in layups for Othello Harrington, as Chicago closed the third quarter with a 65-57 lead it did not relinquish. "If anyone stood out there tonight, it was Chris Duhon, who played well defensively, he ran the team and he did what he has been doing all year," Chicago coach Scott Skiles said. "He was tough out there and had a good head about himself." "I just tried to play my game," Duhon said. "And when I got the ball to my teammates, they finished the shot." Chicago held an 87-85 lead when Bulls rookie Andres Nocioni was fouled with 11.2 seconds left. He missed both free throws, but Tyson Chandler tipped the rebound back to Duhon, who was fouled with 5.2 seconds left. Bucks coach Terry Porter showed his displeasure by throwing his gum onto the court, earning a technical foul. Kirk Hinrich sank the ensuing technical free throw for a three-point lead, and Duhon iced it with a pair from the line. "They missed those free throws and Tyson Chandler made his jump at the ball and got it," said Milwaukee swingman Desmond Mason, who scored eight of his 13 points in the first quarter. "He came off quick and hard, and obviously there were a couple of calls we thought were questionable." The victory was the 30th of the season for Chicago, tying the win total for the 2002-03 team - the most in a season since the 1997-98 championship campaign, Michael Jordan's last with the Bulls. Hinrich scored 12 of his 17 points in the fourth quarter and added eight assists for the Bulls, who have won seven of the last eight against the Bucks in the United Center. "I got more pick-and-roll opportunities and that's the game I like to play," Hinrich said. "We talk about it's important to withstand the ups and downs of the games." Eddy Curry scored 16 points, Nocioni 13 and Harrington 11 as Chicago held a 42-28 advantage in points in the paint. "It was pretty physical," Porter said. "We expected their bigs to really take a challenge. They've been talking about how our bigs have been dominating them. We expected a physical game and that's just what it was." Gordon, who was averaging 19.8 points in his last 10 games, scored just 11 points on 5-of-16 shooting. Bucks guard Michael Redd continued his torrid scoring with 26 points on 10-of-20 shooting - one point higher than his average over his previous five games. "We played extremely well tonight, especially in the second half," Redd said. "We came back and played very hard. We had our chances to win the ballgame. A couple of calls didn't go our way. We missed some big rebounds and it just didn't go our way tonight." Redd pulled Milwaukee within 85-83 on a pair of free throws with 62 seconds remaining, but Hinrich hit a leaner from 10 feet 19 seconds later. Redd hit a turnaround jumper on the Bucks' next possession with 26 seconds left, but they fouled Nocioni with 11.2 seconds left to avoid getting the ball back with just two seconds remaining. Erick Strickland added 13 points in 17 minutes off the bench for Milwaukee, which split four games with Chicago this season, with the home team winning each time.
