CHICAGO(AP) Andres Nocioni scored nine of his 26 points in overtime, and Kirk Hinrich had 25 points to help the Chicago Bulls beat the Milwaukee Bulls 112-104 on Friday night in the exhibition finale for both teams.

The game was Bucks coach Scott Skiles first visit to the United Center since he was fired by the Bulls last season. The teams will meet again in Chicago on Tuesday night in the regular-season opener.

Derrick Rose, the former Memphis star drafted first overall by the Bulls, left in the first quarter because of a strained right hip flexor, but is expected to play Tuesday night in the regular-season opener. He was hurt driving for a layup.

"(Rose) wanted to go back in,'' Chicago coach Vinny Del Negro said. "But there's no sense taking a risk there. He'll be fine.''

Chicago's Ben Gordon (jammed left big toe), guard Larry Hughes (dislocated right shoulder) and forward Luol Deng (sore right toe) missed the game. Milwaukee center Andrew Bogut sat out because of a sprained left ankle.

The Bulls (4-4) led 54-35 at halftime and 78-66 entering the final quarter, but the Bucks (1-1) used a 20-4 run to take an 86-82 lead.

Chicago tied it at 95 tie on Joakim Noah's rebound tip-in.

Thabo Sefolosha added 18 points for the Bulls.

Richard Jefferson led Milwaukee with 21 points.
