Game Story

AUBURN HILLS, Michigan (Ticker) -- Rookie reserves Ben Gordon and Andres Nocioni have the Chicago Bulls thinking about the glory days. Gordon and Nocioni combined for 18 points in the fourth quarter as the Chicago Bulls held off the defending champion Detroit Pistons, 89-82, for their fifth straight win. It is the first time the Bulls have won five straight games since the 1997-98 season, Michael Jordan's last in a Chicago uniform. They also ended a nine-game losing streak to Detroit. "It does feel nice for me because I've been here through it all and for us to start winning, I've never had a winning streak like this since I've been in the NBA," Bulls fourth-year forward Tyson Chandler said. "It definitely feels good." After the game, Pistons coach Larry Brown had to be restrained from going after referee Anthony Jordan, whom Brown felt was ignoring him. "The guy wouldn't talk to me during the game," Brown said. "I can't understand that. I wasn't being discourteous. Well, I was at the end and I suppose I'll hear about that." Gordon's 19 points, Nocioni's 18 and Chandler's 13 helped the Bulls' bench outscore their Pistons counterparts, 53-8. "We have been a team that just keeps on battling," Chicago coach Scott Skiles said. "Each night is a little bit different. Our bench has played so well all year. Ben got hot for us right when we needed some hoops, but Noch (Nocioni) came into the game with a lot of pop in his step. We got a great contribution out of our bench." "A lot of guys coming off the bench have started before somewhere else or are good enough to start so I think everybody just comes off (the bench) ready to play," Gordon said. "When they get in the game, they contribute." Chicago did not trail after the second quarter, finishing the period with a 9-1 run to take a 46-38 lead into halftime. Chauncey Billups kept Detroit in the game by scoring 17 of his season-high 32 points in the third period, including four 3-pointers. He continued his strong play in the fourth quarter, cutting the deficit to 71-70 with a jumper at the 7:36 mark. "One of the first things guys we're saying back on the bench was we knew they were going to make a run," Gordon said. "So just keep your head, keep your composure and continue to play the way we were playing." Gordon responded by scoring seven points in a decisive 13-4 spurt, capping it with a three-point play with 2:11 left to seal the victory. "I got some good looks and knocked down some shots," Gordon said. "That's what I had to do. I was fortunate to get them off and they were going in." Richard Hamilton again struggled for Detroit. He followed a 3-of-22 performance against the Trail Blazers on Saturday with a 5-of-15 showing against the Bulls, scoring 12 points. Billups made 9-of-16 shots while the rest of the team was just 22-of-72. "We continue to shoot bad and give people life," Brown said. "They really came out and shot the ball well. We defended them as best we could, but they did a great job of shooting the ball." At 12-12, the Pistons are at .500 for the ninth time this season after being .500 just once (1-1) last season. "If you had told me at the start of the season that we'd be .500 at Christmas, I would have said, 'No way,'" Billups said. "But the way we've been playing, it's not surprising. I don't expect to be playing this way all year."
