Chicago Bulls Getting Inside 2009-12-03

Chicago Bulls Getting Inside 2009-12-03The Bulls were no doubt glad to be home again. Playing at the United Center for the first time since Nov. 14, they snapped a five-game losing streak by beating Detroit on Wednesday.

There are a few good signs as the Bulls sit with a 7-9 record:

--Since vowing not to cut his hair until he started playing more aggressively, guard Derrick Rose has averaged 19.8 points, and 4.8 assists, while shooting 51.5 percent in the last six games.

--Guard John Salmons, off to a miserable start with his outside shot this season, has scored at least 20 points in three of the last four games. During that time, he's shooting 49.1 percent.

--The Bulls are coming up on a stretch where they play 14 of 19 games at home.

First, though, the Bulls make their second trip of the season to Cleveland on Friday. They pulled out an 86-85 victory at Quicken Loans Arena on Nov. 5. The Bulls got balanced scoring in that game, with five players in double-figures, and won it with a defensive stop. LeBron James went to the basket and lost the ball out of bounds when he ran into center Joakim Noah just before time ran out.

James had two 41-point games last season against the Bulls and scored a more reasonable 25 in the Nov. 5 contest. Guard Derrick Rose collected a season-high 11 assists for the Bulls that night.

BULLS 92, PISTONS 85: The return of ex-Bulls shooting guard Ben Gordon was not an artistic success, but the Bulls started quickly and ended a five-game losing streak by beating Detroit 92-85 on Wednesday at the United Center. Gordon's participation was in doubt until just before tip-off because he'd missed the two previous games with a sprained left ankle. He ended up coming off the bench and led the Pistons with 18 points. The Bulls jumped to a 24-10 lead at the end of the first quarter and when Detroit closed within three points early in the third, the home team responded with an 11-0 run. Guard John Salmons led the Bulls with 22 points, while guard Derrick Rose added 19.
