Bulls vs. Bucks final score: Bulls blow 27-point lead in crushing loss

Jonathan Daniel

Truth be told, I just deleted the opening paragraphs to what I thought I'd be writing about: a dominating victory securing the Bulls as tops in an incredibly crappy division.

But it got a lot crappier for the Bulls. Up 27 in the 3rd quarter, the Bulls were looking at a full dominating victory, more impressive than their win over the same team on Saturday. Kirk Hinrich even hit a 3-pointer. I saw it, I swear.

But Scott Skiles saw a mini-run at the end of the 3rd behind a lineup of Beno Udrih, Doron Lamb, Mike Dunleavy, Ersan Ilyasova, and Epke Udoh. So he left them in the game. And they wound up winning it, tying the Bulls at 7 minutes remaining behind a 31-4 run, and then getting a 1-point victory after securing several loose balls late. Ilyasova was the main contributor to the run, but the whole lineup gave the Bulls an entirely different look than what their starters were giving. They outscored the Bulls bench 56-10. Though to be fair, only 3 guys play on the bench anymore.

Much more later.
