NBA Game Summary - Milwaukee at Chicago



(Friday, April 4th)

Final Score: Chicago 102, Milwaukee 90

Chicago, IL (SportsNetwork.com) - Kirk Hinrich and Jimmy Butler scored 17 points apiece to lead the Chicago Bulls to a 102-90 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday.

Carlos Boozer and D.J. Augustin tallied 14 points apiece, with Boozer adding 11 rebounds for the Bulls, who have won four straight. Joakim Noah contributed 11 points and 13 boards, while Taj Gibson and Mike Dunleavy added 13 and 12 points, respectively.

Brandon Knight had a game-high 22 points and Jeff Adrien posted a career- high 21 points and had nine rebounds for the Bucks, who have tied a franchise record with 62 losses on the season. Ramon Sessions and Zaza Pachulia scored 14 and 13 points, respectively, with Pachulia adding nine rebounds in defeat.

The Bulls led 27-15 at the end of the first quarter on the strength of shooting 50 percent (12-for-24) from the floor, while the Bucks made 40 percent (6-for-15) of their field goals in the period.

Chicago expanded its lead to 37-21 with a 10-2 run two minutes into the second frame. The Bucks had no answer and trailed by 19, 48-29, with 3 1/2 minutes left in the first half.

Milwaukee trailed 51-35 to start the third period. After trading scores through the first 4 1/2 minutes of the second half, the Bucks used a 9-4 run to pull within 10 points. Chicago, however, stretched the margin to 82-62 heading into the fourth.

"We started to move the basketball. We started looking for the cutters," said Bucks head coach Larry Drew.

The Bucks, though, did not go away. With 9:19 left they scored 11 straight to pull within eight, the closest they had been since a minute into the second quarter. The teams went back-and-forth over the next three-plus minutes before a 7-2 surge put Chicago back up by 13 with just over two minutes to play.

"They played harder than us for a stretch. But when we needed to score, we got it done," said Gibson.

Milwaukee scored the next four to pull within single-digits with 1 1/2 minutes left, but Butler and Noah each knocked down a pair from the line to help the Bulls seal the deal.
