Bulls snap skid at Gordon's expense

Bulls snap skid at Gordon's expense

Gordon entered the game with 6:24 left in the first quarter to a mixed greeting that was mostly boos. And when he went to the line less than 2 minutes later, the boos grew louder before turning to cheers when he missed the free throw. The boos continued most of the night.

Gordon, who missed the Pistons' previous two games with a sprained left ankle, finished the half with five points and three fouls.

"I wasn't 100 percent, but I figured I'd go out there and make a sacrifice for the team and try to get us a win. ... We had a lot of guys out," Gordon said.

"When he has the ball and shoots, you always think it's going in," Chicago coach Vinny Del Negro said. "You could tell he was hobbling a little with the ankle. ... He's moved on and we moved on. Ben did a lot of good things here."

The Pistons clipped a 10-point halftime deficit to three in the third quarter before the Bulls took off. Rose drove through the lane for a hoop, Joakim Noah hit a short jumper, Salmons connected on a 3-pointer before taking a nice pass from Rose for a layup and Brad Miller followed in a shot during the 11-0 run that put the Bulls up 63-49. They led by 17 after three quarters.

Detroit scrapped in the final quarter and whittled the lead to five with 16 seconds left on Gordon's two free throws before Miller hit a pair from the line to ice it.

The Bulls jumped out to a 23-6 lead against the cold-shooting Pistons and led 24-10 at the end of the first quarter. Detroit, missing injured stars Richard Hamilton (ankle), Tayshaun Prince (back) and Charlie Villanueva (broken nose), shot 5 of 20 in the opening period.

Chicago led 48-38 at the half behind 13 points from Salmons and 50 percent shooting.

NOTES: Noah had 14 rebounds. Miller chipped in 16 points ... The Pistons have lost eight of nine. ... Chicago's Kirk Hinrich sat out his third straight game with a sprained thumb.
