Game Story

CHICAGO (Ticker) -- Rookie Ben Gordon and the Chicago Bulls have come a long way in a month. Gordon continued his scoring surge with a season-high 31 points as the Bulls rolled to their fifth straight win, a 110-78 trouncing of the Philadelphia 76ers. On December 10, the Bulls suffered a 93-88 home loss to the 76ers to drop to 3-14. In that game, Gordon scored just four points on 1-of-5 shooting. The following night, Gordon scored 31 points in a victory over Minnesota, sparking Chicago (15-18) on a run that has seen them win 12 of 16 games and climb into playoff contention in the Eastern Conference. "It's more mental than physical," Gordon said. "You just have to have a strong will and bring the same game out with you every night. I am still learning that." The third overall pick in the draft, Gordon has led the Bulls in scoring six times during that stretch, averaging 16.5 points. "It's a matter of conditioning and maturity," Gordon said. "I needed to show (Bulls coach) Scott Skiles that I could compete on both ends of the court. If you don't play defense, you won't play for coach Skiles." Coming off the bench, Gordon made 10-of-16 shots and did most of his damage late. He scored 19 points in the fourth quarter, including three 3-pointers in a 15-2 run that opened the period and gave Chicago an 89-63 lead. "They did just what a team should do when they realize the other team has no energy or they sense that the other team is not ready to play or to win a basketball game - you blow them out and do not let them back in a game," said 76ers guard Allen Iverson, who had 21 points and eight assists. Eddy Curry scored 24 points and Kirk Hinrich added 16 and nine assists for the Bulls, who have held their last 20 foes under 100 points. They did not register their 15th win last season until February 12. "We did some nice things out there against a very good team," Skiles said. "I thought our zones that we used four different times helped frustrate them a bit." "They have become the No. 1 defensive field-goal team in the league. That shows you are working your butt off in practice and you are well-coached," 76ers coach Jim O'Brien said. "They defend you and they now have a lot of inside and outside weapons." Curry scored 16 points in the first half, when Chicago took the lead for good. The Bulls used a 15-3 run to build a 41-29 lead before settling for a 45-38 halftime edge. "Lately, we pride ourselves in playing defense," Curry said. "That is our main objective out there, to really shut teams down. When we do it right, we can be tough to beat." Consecutive three-point plays by Curry pushed the advantage to 57-44 early in the third quarter. Chicago held a 74-61 lead entering the final period and blew out Philadelphia in the second half, when it scored a staggering 65 points. "They have been playing better," Iverson admitted. "When you win four in a row, you add confidence and swagger. They have that." Marc Jackson scored 17 points and Corliss Williamson added 14 for the 76ers, who have lost three in a row and come full circle since their last visit here. That win ended a season-high six-game slide and triggered a 9-4 surge that included a highly successful West Coast road trip.
