Game Story

SEATTLE (Ticker) -- More and more, the fourth quarter is becoming rookie Ben Gordon's time. Gordon scored 14 of his 22 points in the final period as the Chicago Bulls held on for a 100-97 victory over the Seattle SuperSonics, who have lost three in a row for the first time this season. The third overall pick in June's draft, Gordon recorded his league-leading 18th double-digit output in the fourth quarter. "I'm just starring in the fourth," Gordon said. "I think it's pretty simple. I don't really credit it too much more than my teammates looking for me and me just knocking down shots. If you look at the number of points I am scoring in the fourth you can see that I definitely like (the pressure). I look at it as fun, not pressure." In this one, Gordon gave the Bulls a 96-93 advantage with a running hook shot with 2:13 remaining. Seattle's Nick Collison responded with a pair of layups. The second came with 20 seconds to go after the SuperSonics missed their previous three shots on the possession, but the second-year forward was there to give Seattle a 97-96 lead - its first since late in the second quarter. Once again, Gordon drove the lane and connected on a floater that re-established Chicago's lead with 12 seconds left. All-Star Ray Allen, who made just 4-of-16 shots, had his potential go-ahead jumper smothered by Tyson Chandler, and Chris Duhon picked up the loose ball with 4.5 seconds to go. "I was just trying to make it," he said. "Two other times I got in the lane and overshot it, but the next time I got in the lane I was able to convert." "I didn't have any outlet, said Allen, who scored 17 points. "I didn't have anywhere to go. I fault myself because I never should have gotten in that position. I picked up my dribble, which I shouldn't have." Chandler said he knew who the ball would go to Allen. "I knew Ray Allen would try to take the shot to end the game so my whole focus was to not let him get it off," Chandler said. After Duhon split a pair from the line to make it 99-97, Seattle's Rashard Lewis, who scored 27 points, drew a foul with 1.5 seconds left. However, Lewis missed the first free throw, and when he missed the second intentionally, Chandler grabbed the rebound to seal Chicago's third straight win. "You've got to make them (free throws) and it didn't happen," Sonics coach Nate McMillan said. "We had some costly turnovers and we were just careless with the ball." "Anytime we can come out here and beat one of these teams, it's a big win," Bulls coach Scott Skiles said. "I think we did an exceptional job on Ray. Kirk (Hinrich) predominantly did a great job on him." In an unusual twist, there was a scoring snafu in the first half resulting in three points being deducted from the Bulls score at the start of the fourth quarter after it was discovered that Chandler received six points for a three-point play in the second quarter. "My point was, how can we start the game when we don't know the score," Skiles said. "Every decision is based on timing and score. What I was getting is that at some point they were going to correct it. I was a little nervous about when that point was going to be." Nevertheless, Skiles was delighted with the outcome. "Whatever, it was a great win and we are glad to have it," he said.
