Game Story

CHICAGO (Ticker) -- The Chicago Bulls got a real good look at their future. Unfortunately, it presently is comprised of rookies.

First-year players Elton Brand, Ron Artest and Dedric Willoughby led a fourth-quarter charge but all three missed shots on the final possession as the Milwaukee Bucks escaped with a 92-91 victory. The Bulls have lost nine straight games.

Milwaukee's Glenn Robinson scored 19 points, including a short jumper with 13 seconds to play that gave the Bucks just their third win in the last seven games. Robinson sat out Thursday's loss to the New York Knicks with a sore calf but bounced back tonight.

Sam Cassell had 23 points and 15 assists for the Bucks, who led by 17 points midway through the second quarter and by 12 with 7:12 to play before the Bulls rallied behind their young trio.

Artest scored a season-high 21 points, Brand contributed 19 and a season-high 17 rebounds and Willoughby scored 12 points for Chicago, which fell to a league-worst 1-14.

"We were in a position to win at the end because of our young guys," Bulls coach Tim Floyd said. "Dedric Willoughby was good off the bench."

"I think some of the new guys did get a lot of good late-game experience from this," Brand said. "We just have to keep working hard. It was a tough loss, but I thought we had it. You have to build on it as a positive."

Two free throws by Ray Allen, who also scored 19 points, gave Milwaukee an 86-74 advantage with 7:12 remaining. Willoughby, filling in at point guard for the injured Randy Brown, made a 3-pointer to trigger a 17-4 run.

Artest scored eight points in the surge, including a 3-pointer that cut the deficit to 90-89 with 51 seconds left. Brand scored four, including a turnaround jumper that gave Chicago its first lead at 91-90 with 29 seconds to go.

"Chicago got on a heck of a run the last five minutes," Cassell said. "They got back into that game and almost won it. We have got to change our mentality and approach."

Robinson nearly traveled and appeared to be fouled but made a tough rainbow 13-footer to give Milwaukee a one-point lead.

"The play was designed to get a post-up shot," Robinson said. "No one had a real open shot. I just made a tough shot at the end."

"There was a rookie mistake that cost us," Floyd said. "We had a foul to give on their last possession and we wanted to take it if they got in a scoring position. Ron Artest gained some experience and I don't think he will make that mistake next time."

On Chicago's final possession, Artest drove but missed a layup and the ball went out of bounds off the Bucks with eight seconds left. Willoughby had an open 3-pointer but missed. Brand got the rebound and tried a fallaway jumper that also missed as the horn sounded.

"We just came down hard at the end," Brand said. "We had three good looks at the basket. But it is tough to lose games like that."

Danny Manning scored 15 points off the bench for the Bucks, who shot 54 percent (38-of-70) from the field and beat the Bulls for the fourth time in the last five meetings.

"This game shows what happens to us," Allen said. "We mess around too much. It can be just two plays or anything like that in a game and it sets us back. It's typical of how we're playing."

Hersey Hawkins scored 11 points for the Bulls, who shot just 38 percent (30-of-79) but held a 44-34 rebounding advantage. Brown left in the third quarter with an ankle injury.

"It was a great team effort, which is something we have been trying to stress all year long," said Hawkins, an 11-year veteran. "I think our young guys deserve a lot of credit."

Robinson scored seven points in the first quarter as Milwaukee bolted to a 28-17 lead. Two free throws by Cassell capped a 10-2 surge that widened the advantage to 44-27 with 5:11 to play in the second quarter.

Chicago closed to 53-41 at halftime and Brand and Artest scored nine points each in the third period, which ended with Milwaukee holding a 78-71 advantage.
