NBA Game Summary - Milwaukee at Chicago



(Tuesday, November 3rd)

Final Score: Chicago 83, Milwaukee 81

Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - Derrick Rose's dunk in the fourth quarter sparked a game-changing 9-0 Chicago run that led to the Bulls' 83-81 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks at United Center.

Rose finished with 16 points and Luol Deng donated 24 points and a career-high 20 rebounds for the Bulls, who snapped a two-game slide. Brad Miller had 13 points with seven rebounds, while Jannero Pargo scored 10 in the win.

Brandon Jennings had 25 points and Andrew Bogut 16 with 13 boards for the Bucks, who fell to 1-2. Hakim Warrick and Charlie Bell had 10 points each with Warrick adding 10 rebounds.

On the injury front, Milwaukee was without its top scorer, guard Michael Redd, who will miss at least two weeks after experiencing soreness in his surgically-repaired left knee. Redd underwent surgery last March to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament, and he left Saturday night's game against Detroit during the third quarter with discomfort in the knee.

Trailing by six points early in the fourth, Deng had a three-point play and Miller drained a three-pointer to tie it up.

Bogut countered with a hook shot but Rose had a dunk, Pargo nailed a three and Rose poured in four points to give the home team its first lead of the game, 75-68, with 4:46 left in the final frame.

Bell's three cut it to 78-75 later in the fourth, but Chicago answered with a dunk each from Joakim Noah and Rose.

Bogut, though, hit a jumper and Jennings offered two buckets to make it 82-81 with 22.6 ticks left.

Miller was fouled on the ensuing Chicago touch and went 1-for-2, which made it a two-point game. Following a timeout, Jennings took the inbounds pass at the top of the key and dribbled around up top before driving the lane. His shot though was blocked by Rose, and Noah grabbed the board and was fouled with 21 seconds left.

Noah missed both shots and Carlos Delfino grabbed the rebound and called timeout with 13.7 ticks showing. The club worked the ball in and eventually Ersan Ilyasova air-balled a three-point attempt from the right elbow to all but seal the deal.

"In the NBA there's 40 minutes," said Bogut. "They came back...and put in a hell of an effort. They deserved to win just because they fought hard."

The Bucks were up 25-13 after the first quarter and increased that to 43-29 at the break.

Trailing by 18 midway through the third, Pargo hit a three-pointer to spark a 12-0 Bulls run. Pargo's jumper and John Salmons' three closed out the run, which closed it to 56-50.

Deng's three at the end of the third period made it 60-56.

"I felt like I had a lot of energy, even before the game," said Deng. "At halftime we were down and I felt like we needed energy."

Game Notes

The Bucks shot 39.6 percent from the field, while Chicago hit at a 39.2 percent clip...The Bulls won the battle of the boards, 53-44...Chicago took three of its four contests versus the Bucks last season and has won 11 of its last 13 overall against Milwaukee.
