Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- The Chicago Bulls made an impressive comeback, but former teammate Toni Kukoc ensured it would not stand. The Milwaukee Bucks blew a 25-point second-half lead before Kukoc nailed a momentum-killing 3-pointer as they defeated the Bulls for the ninth straight time at the Bradley Center, 108-101. The Bucks blitzed the Bulls in the second quarter, 42-14, to take a 67-44 lead into halftime. Michael Redd scored 18 of his 24 points during the period, including 5-of-7 3-pointers. "I tried to find the open space on the floor and spot up," Redd said. "The shots just fell for me tonight. I had that feeling where just about anything I threw up was going to go in." But after rookie Dan Gadzuric began the second half with a short jumper, Chicago stormed back, taking a 90-89 lead on a layup by rookie Lonny Baxter. After Tim Thomas briefly reclaimed the lead for Milwaukee with a spinning layup and Chicago rookie Jay Williams tied the game by hitting 1-of-2 free throws, the Bucks took the lead for good at 104-101 with 3:49 remaining on a 3-pointer by Kukoc, who helped the Bulls win three NBA titles from 1996-98. "Toni is a big shot provider," Bulls coach Bill Cartwright said. "You have to think he will make that shot and he did. You know, what can you say, you can't get them all." "We have plenty of guys who can hit the outside shot," said Kukoc, who had only five points on 2-of-11 shooting but had 12 assists. "When we move the ball and rebound, we get good, open looks, and that puts our shooters in position to hit shots." Jalen Rose answered with a jumper 20 seconds later, but Anthony Mason converted a three-point play and Ray Allen added two free throws to extend the lead to 99-93 with 2:54 remaining. The Bulls got no closer than four points thereafter. "It will take time for this team to get where we want it to be," Bucks coach George Karl said. "We'll have our ups and downs but that's basketball. We just need to focus on the things that will make this team successful and we will be all right." "We came out with a lot of energy, but in the second quarter we didn't play like anything we have played like all year," Cartwright said. "In the second half we gathered ourselves, but it was too big of a hole to dig out of. It was too bad - we gave a great effort to come back." Allen scored 19 points and reserve Kevin Ollie added 14 for Milwaukee, which posted its fourth win in five games. Williams scored 20 points, Donyell Marshall added 19 and Baxter 14 for the Bulls, who lost for the fifth time in six contests. "We always fight back, we never quit," Williams said. "We are young and want to be competitive to give us a chance to win. I think we showed that tonight, we just need to finish." Chicago shot just 2-of-12 from the arc, while Milwaukee made 10-of-24. "When you are trying to come back, everything is magnified - every missed shot, every turnover," Rose said. "Toni hit a huge three. It crushed us. I think the comeback was dead after that."
