Game Story

CHICAGO (Ticker) -- Over two weeks after their last appearance in the United Center, the Chicago Bulls showed their fans a new look and gave them several reasons to cheer. In coach Scott Skiles' debut, the Bulls received big efforts from new acquisitions Jerome Williams and Antonio Davis and 30 points from Jamal Crawford in a 97-87 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks. After watching losses in six of the first seven games at the United Center, boos were part of the nightly routine from Chicago fans. The Bulls had suffered four straight blowouts on their home court before coming close in the next three games. Following a rout in the final game of Bill Cartwright's tenure on November 23, management turned to Pete Myers for two games before introducing Skiles as the Bulls' fifth coach since Phil Jackson left the team following the 1997-98 season. "That was a good win," said Skiles, who compiled a 116-79 record in 2 1/2 seasons as coach of the Phoenix Suns. "It may not seem like that, but I am very happy about that." Not only did the Bulls introduce a new high-tempo offense, they also unveiled Williams and Davis, who were acquired in a six-player deal with Toronto. "They (the coaches) did a good job of showing us what to do," Davis said. "We just wanted to bring some energy. We were just as happy to see them as they were to see us." In Chicago's first home game since an eight-point loss to Seattle on November 15, both players were on the court during a 27-6 run that turned a 69-64 third-quarter deficit into a 91-75 lead with 3:48 remaining. Milwaukee countered with a 12-0 run that cut the deficit to 91-87 with 58 seconds to play. But Williams hustled for an offensive rebound and found Eddy Curry for a two-handed dunk. Nicknamed "Junkyard Dog" for his energy and hustle, Williams brought just that, finishing with 13 points and 10 rebounds. "I played and coached against him over the years," Skiles said. "He came into the game and he does what he does. He is all over the map and guards multiple positions." Davis, who makes his offseason home in Chicago, added 11 points as the Bulls snapped a seven-game losing streak. They also received a standing ovation from their fans, who have had little to cheer about since 1998. "It's unreal," said Curry, who scored 22 points. "That is what we needed around here without Tyson (Chandler) being around. Jerome is just unreal. He is almost scary. "It was like we were reborn, rejuvenated. We could not wait to get out to the game. I felt things were changing in practice. We saw it in the different attitudes. We just wanted to get here and play." Chandler, the team's leading rebounder, was placed on the injured list before the game with a sore lower back. Williams and Davis did not start and did not practice with their new team. But they had little trouble energizing a club that had lost by an average 13.6 points on a five-game road trip. Williams, whose hustle helped Chicago to 22 fast-break points and 46 in the paint, highlighted his debut by stripping Milwaukee's Michael Redd and diving to the court before finding Crawford for a breakaway dunk that made it 72-69 just 90 seconds into the fourth. Two more dunks by Williams and a 3-pointer by Crawford highlighted the charge before Milwaukee tried to battle back. The Bucks were within 91-87 following a 3-pointer by Redd but didn't score again. "We knew that him and Antonio were going to be fired up tonight," said Redd, who scored 26 points. "They did a great job of showing energy tonight with coach Skiles."
