Up 27, Bulls blow it
CHICAGO – The Milwaukee Bucks had everything working against them late in the third quarter – a 27-point deficit, a nine-game skid against Chicago and a flurry of 3-pointers by the Bulls, the league's worst deep-shooting team.
So Milwaukee coach Scott Skiles cleared the bench and watched his reserves tear off a 31-4 run, leading the Bucks to a stunning 93-92 comeback win over the Bulls on Monday night that snapped a three-game losing streak.
Ersan Ilyasova scored 14 of his 18 points in the second half to lead the comeback, including 12 in the fourth quarter when Milwaukee outscored the Bulls 30-12 to prevent them from taking over first place in the Central Division. The first-place Bucks lead the Bulls by 1½ games.
