Recap


Bulls 104, Bucks 88: Nate Robinson scored 16 of his game-high 24 points in the first half as Chicago continued its road dominance with a one-sided win in Milwaukee.

Jimmy Butler added 18 points in a reserve role and Taj Gibson chipped in with 14 for the Bulls, who improved to a league-best 13-6 away from home. Luol Deng (12 points, 13 rebounds) and Joakim Noah (12 points, 12 rebounds) added double-doubles in the win.

Ersan Ilyasova's 18 points paced the Bucks, who committed 19 turnovers leading to 24 Chicago points. Brandon Jennings had 15 points and Samuel Dalembert added 14 points and 13 rebounds.

Robinson's big first half propelled Chicago to a 55-37 lead, but the Bucks responded with a strong third quarter to cut into the deficit. A Jennings 3-pointer with 7:01 remaining made it a 10-point game, and he converted a three-point play later in the period to stem a Chicago surge as Milwaukee went into the fourth trailing 79-68.

Any chance at a comeback was extinguished early in the final period, as Deng converted three short shots in a 2:54 span midway through the quarter to stretch the lead back to 18. Milwaukee closed to within 10 but couldn't get any closer.

GAME NOTEBOOK
: Chicago has allowed fewer than 90 points in each of its last seven games. ... The Bulls were without PF Carlos Boozer, who was a late scratch due to a hamstring injury. ... The road team has won all four meetings in the season series.
