Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- The last time the Milwaukee Bucks defeated the Chicago Bulls, Michael Jordan was a month removed from baseball.

Armen Gilliam led surges in the second and fourth quarters and scored 16 points as the Bucks defeated the woeful Bulls, 91-83. Milwaukee snapped a 12-game losing streak to Chicago dating to the 1994-95 season finale, just 17 games after Jordan's return from his first retirement and his failed try at baseball.

Terrell Brandon scored 17 points for Milwaukee, which blew a 17-point second-quarter lead before putting away the game with a 15-2 run in the final period and improving to 5-1.

"I'm trying to manage their mentality and professionalism," said George Karl, who is in his first year as Bucks coach. "It's easy to give in. We have a lot of excuses to grab onto. This team needs to conquer past ghosts. That's the challenge I'm making to them."

The loss was the fifth straight for Chicago and also harkened back to the last time it was without the league's biggest star. The Bulls had not lost five in a row since February 26-March 6, 1994, four months after Jordan's first retirement.

"There is definite room for improvement," Bulls coach Tim Floyd said.

Toni Kukoc scored 20 points for the Bulls, who used a trapping defense to climb back into the game in the second half.

Dickey Simpkins scored seven of his eight points in the third quarter, when Chicago began a 24-8 surge. A 3-pointer by rookie Charles Jones completed the comeback and gave the Bulls a 70-69 lead with 8:34 to play.

The Bucks responded with 10 straight points. Gilliam, who was 7-of-9 from the field, made a 12-footer to give Milwaukee the lead for good and Glenn Robinson followed a miss by Gilliam to get the Bradley Center crowd of 14,682 back into it.

A hook by Gilliam provided a 75-70 lead and Brandon buried two straight jumpers for a nine-point lead with 5:27 remaining.

A basket by rookie Kornel David with 4:06 left ended Chicago's scoreless drought of nearly 4 1/2 minutes. Tyrone Hill dunked and Robinson hit a jumper before a free throw by Brandon made it 84-72 with 2:51 to go.

"This game should have been a blowout, but we didn't handle the trap well enough," Gilliam said. "We were scrambling out there. As a player, you have to be ready to go in the game and make the right adjustments."

Ray Allen scored 15 points, Dell Curry added 13 and Robinson 12 for the Bucks, who had six players in double figures and held a 50-28 rebounding edge. Hill had 10 points and 12 boards.

"Offensively, we just tried to stay aggressive," Brandon said. "You just have to keep shooting to try to get in the flow."

David and Rusty LaRue scored 10 points each for the Bulls, who shot 40.5 percent (30-of-74) from the field and grabbed just three offensive rebounds. Milwaukee's frontcourt starters each grabbed at least four offensive boards.

The Bulls were without starting guard Ron Harper, who was out with a hamstring injury and joined injured guard Randy Brown and center Bill Wennington on the sidelines. They got off to a slow start as nine points from Allen provided the Bucks with a 24-18 lead after one quarter.

"We got off to a shaky start but our bench played hard," Floyd said. "I got some good minutes out of Kornel David and Dickey Simpkins. We had a little bit of a unique situation, with three guys unable to play."

A 10-footer by Vinny Del Negro capped a 12-4 spurt and gave the Bucks their largest lead at 46-29 with 2:33 remaining in the second quarter. Gilliam scored eight points in the period, which ended with Milwaukee holding a 48-36 lead.
