Game Story

NEW YORK (Ticker) -- Ben Gordon's team has all but wrapped up a playoff spot. His hometown team will have to wait at least another year. A native of nearby Mount Vernon, Gordon scored 22 points off the bench as the Chicago Bulls posted a 102-94 victory over the New York Knicks, whose losing streak reached a season-high nine games. Among the top rookies and best reserves in the league, Gordon finished with his 23rd game of at least 20 points. He shot just 5-of-14 from the floor and made only one basket in the fourth quarter but did enough on both ends as the Bulls overcame a slow start for the third time in four games. "We started out slow," Gordon said. "We have to find ways to come out with a little more energy. But we've been doing a good job of just playing through it and staying with it the whole game. Guys were able to make some big plays when we needed them." "It wasn't a pretty game," Bulls coach Scott Skiles added. "I don't feel like either team played well. We were able to get stops when the game was on the line. I thought we were out of gas, but we found a way to rally." It was another solid game in New York for Gordon, who hit the game-winning shot in the first meeting on January 17 and played several games here as a star for Connecticut. "It's like my home away from home," Gordon said. "It was like that in high school, college and you feel comfortable being able to play in front of your friends and family." Kirk Hinrich added 20 points on 9-of-14 shooting for the Bulls (43-32), who connected on 53 percent (36-of-68) en route to their 11th win in 12 games. Chicago (43-34), which has not made the playoffs since 1998, is 6 1/2 games ahead of ninth-place New Jersey in the Eastern Conference with seven games left. The Bulls are two games in front of Washington and Indiana for fourth, which carries home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs. However, the news wasn't all good for the Bulls. Already without center Eddy Curry and rookie forward Luol Deng, Chicago lost reserve big man Tyson Chandler when the 7-footer was poked in the eye by Jerome Williams with 2:22 remaining in the game. Afterwards, Chandler's left eye was taped and his status for Saturday's game vs. Toronto is uncertain. "The other doctor looked at it and she said I have a scratch across the eye," Chandler said. "For the most part, you'd like to have everybody," Hinrich said. "But somehow we're getting the job done. Anytime you can win on the road, you're happy to do it." New York (29-46) - which is on its longest losing streak since ending the 1984-85 season on a franchise-worst 12-game skid - was eliminated from playoff contention earlier Friday when the Philadelphia 76ers beat the Cleveland Cavaliers. But unlike that campaign, the Knicks have little chance of getting the top pick in the draft. New York jumped out to a 21-8 lead barely five minutes into the game but Chicago pulled within 31-25 after the quarter and took a 55-54 edge at the half. The game was tied at 82-82 before guard Jannero Pargo gave Chicago the lead for good with a 3-pointer with 7:07 left. Pargo's basket started a 9-2 run that Hinrich ended with driving layup for a 91-84 advantage with 4:37 remaining. The Knicks fought back and got layups from Malik Rose and Kurt Thomas to cut the deficit to 91-88 with 3:35 to go. But after Hinrich and Williams traded baskets, Gordon nailed a runner in the paint over Thomas with 1:21 left and sank two free throws for a seven-point edge with 61 seconds remaining. "I think Gordon did a good job in terms of keeping pressure on us for 30 minutes," Williams said. "He got it going and he kept up the pressure offensively." Stephon Marbury scored 23 of his 29 points in the first half for New York, which has not won since blowing out Boston at home on March 23. Former Bull Jamal Crawford added 22 points but Chicago's defense limited the backcourt duo to just four points in the final 12 minutes. "I don't know if we shut them down," Hinrich said. "But our defense tightened up." Unlike their previous four losses, the Knicks never trailed by double digits until the final minutes of the game. But down the stretch, their lack of execution was evident when Williams and Trevor Ariza took ill-advised 3-pointers.
