For the second game in a row, a late Milwaukee rally fizzled as the Chicago Bulls pulled out a 100-90 win over the Bucks at the United Center in Chicago.
The Bucks played from behind most of the night and trailed by four with 2 1/2 minutes left when former Buck Mike Dunleavy hit a three-pointer that helped seal the deal for Chicago. Dunleavy scored a season-high 18 points and his teammate Pau Gasol had a triple-double with 12 points, 17 rebounds and 13 assists.
The Bucks shot just under 40-percent for the second straight game. Jerryd Bayless led the way with 20 points.
Milwaukee has lost two straight and five of its last seven, while the Bulls ended 16 straight games of giving up 100 points or more.
