MILWAUKEE -- There would be no comeback this time. After surrendering double-digits leads in their last two losses against Milwaukee, the Chicago Bulls put a halt to every attempt at a surge Wednesday, holding on to beat the Bucks 104-88 at the BMO Harris Bradley Center. Nate Robinson scored 16 of his game-high 24 points in the second quarter, and five other Bulls players scored in double digits. Chicago's Jimmy Butler, who played in Milwaukee while at Marquette, scored 18 points and had six rebounds. Taj Gibson finished with 14 points, and Luol Deng and Joakim Noah each scored 12 for Chicago (28-17). Deng grabbed 13 rebounds, and Noah pulled down 12. Chicago's defense was also clicking, holding Milwaukee to just 41.5 percent from the field and forcing 19 turnovers, which the Bulls converted into 24 points. "I liked our toughness," Chicago coach Tom Thibodeau said. "I thought we showed some mental toughness and some fight and got back to make some hu...

AROUND THE WEB
The Chicago Bulls entered this season with a dark cloud hanging over their heads. Derrick Rose was unavailable until further notice. Crucial role players, including C.J. Watson, John Lucas III, Ronnie Brewer, and Omer Asik had all left to pursue more money, and more playing time, elsewhere. The year had already been a dry one in Chicago. The Cubs finished with fewer than 70 wins...
Former Celtic and NBA Dunk Contest champ Nate Robinson had a pretty sweet dunk during last night's Bulls-Bucks game. Stacey King (who played 5 games for the C's), was doing commentary on the game and goes nuts after Nate's dunk, mentioning that he has been waiting for little Nate Robinson to dunk this year.
I would love to see Nate Robinson in the dunk contest this year...
Nate Robinson explodes to the rim for a one handed dunk off a back door cut during the Bulls victory over the Bucks on Wednesday evening. It was the 5’9” 3x dunk champion’s first dunk since the 2010-2011 season as he is heard yelling after the throw down “I want my money” to Rip Hamilton who he made a bet with that he would have one this year:
Robinson was a late Bulls addition this season and said he wasn’t concerned before Thibodeau contacted him as he thought he’d play in the NFL this season if he didn’t land with and NBA.
It’s Nate’s world.
”I was going to (try for a) tryout (with the Seahawks) and play football,” said Robinson. “If no team wanted me for basketball I was going to play football.”
Nate Robinson scored 16 of his 24 points in the second quarter, leading the Chicago Bulls to a 104-88 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night.
Jimmy Butler, a second-year pro from Marquette, had 18 points and five rebounds in a return to the arena where he played college basketball.
Samuel Dalembert had 14 points and a season-high 13 rebounds for the Bucks. Ersan Ilyasova...
With a couple of exceptional one-handed jams thrown down by Harrison Barnes and Carlos Boozer, there was yet another tough call to be made today. I decided to put this one to a vote, and my friends from the InsideHoops forums chose Boozer by an 8-2 tally. I’m pretty surprised that the polling didn’t turn up a tighter race, but I don’t necessarily disagree with the result...
MILWAUKEE The door that had opened for Brandon Jennings to make the All-Star Game has been slammed shut.
NBA commissioner David Stern has picked Brooklyn center Brook Lopez to replace injured Boston point guard Rajon Rondo on the Eastern Conference All-Star team. Jennings was not chosen initially when the reserves were announced last Thursday but seemed to be one of the favorites...
The 1993-1994 Milwaukee Bucks were historic. They were the worst team with only 20 wins in the last 20 years of this mediocre (at best) franchise. That’s 62 losses folks.
It was at the epicenter of my fandom of all things sports. Still living in the dorms with plenty of free time. I remember these Bucks very well.
Mike Dunleavy was the coach and trying to bring life to...
Chicago Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said Wednesday that Derrick Rose is now taking “full contact” and the only thing left in his return from ACL surgery is putting in more time and then getting acclimated to a game situation.
“He’s full contact, yeah,” Thibodeau said before Wednesday’s morning shoot-around as the Bulls prepared to face the Milwaukee Bucks.
The Milwaukee Bucks have enjoyed plenty of success against the Atlantic Division this season, but like many teams, they had none when they faced New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony in November.
The Bucks seek to even the season series with the Knicks, and they have played well at Madison Square Garden in recent seasons heading into Friday night's matchup.
Ersan Ilyasova is now tied for fifth in the NBA in three-point shooting at 43.7 percent.

The Celtics continued to build some momentum before the All Star break with a 103-99 victory in Chicago over Jerry Sloan’s Bulls.
The win was anything but easy. A 23-minue delay in the third quarter due to a broken clock allowed Bill Fitch some extra time to devise a plan to pick apart the Bulls’ defense...
