KEY STAT: 50 percent: The Bulls shot 36-of-72 from the field, their best shooting percentage of the season.
Not as close as the box score would appear. The Bulls led by double digits until the end of the fourth quarter, when the Bucks went on a run during scrub time to cut the margin to five. After enduring a mini-slump, Derrick Rose has now been red-hot two games in a row--scoring a game high 31 points on 9-for-19 shooting and dishing out eight assists. Former Bull Drew Gooden racked up 17 points and 12 rebounds for the Bucks.
Bulls record: 10-4
