Bulls finding stride, send Pistons to ninth straight loss

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (NBA.com exclusive) -- The Chicago Bulls are not worried about saving their head coach's job. If his team keeps playing as it has this week, Vinny Del Negro might not have anything to worry about anyway.

The Bulls nudged their winning streak to three games Thursday afternoon, never trailing in a 98-87 victory over the slump-ridden Detroit Pistons. Del Negro's job status has been a hot topic of conversation but the players haven't let that affect them. They defeated New Orleans and Indiana before their wire-to-wire outing at The Palace.

"We've got to do this all the time," said center Joakim Noah, who had 15 points and a career-high tying 21 rebounds. "We can't control what's going on upstairs and what the GM's [general manager Gar Forman] decision is going to be but right now, we're playing good basketball. We've just got to keep improving and keep getting better."

Chicago snapped an eight-game road losing streak. Its last road win came at Sacramento Nov. 17.

The current upswing has coincided with the return of Tyrus Thomas from a left radius fracture and he was once again a major factor. He had 19 points, including 11 on free throws, and seven rebounds.

Thomas' intensity, coupled with Noah's relentlessness, led to an overwhelming rebounding effort. The Bulls had a 49-33 rebounding advantage.

That, plus a strong defensive performance, helped the Bulls overcome 24 turnovers.

"We just kept attacking," Del Negro said. "That's something we've been trying to stress a lot. Don't play the score or the time, just keep playing the way we want."

Right now, the Pistons just want a win. They have lost nine straight, their longest skid since dropping 13 straight at the end of the 1993-94 season.

"None of it feels good," said Rodney Stuckey, who led the Pistons with 22 points and six assists despite spraining his left ankle in the first half. "I don't know what to say. We should be winning. We had 87 points tonight and the kind of team we have, we shouldn't be scoring 87 points a game."

The offense has particularly stalled over the past six games. The Pistons haven't scored more than 41 points before halftime during that stretch and have not held a second-half lead in any of those games.

Richard Hamilton, Tayshaun Prince and Ben Gordon are still trying to regain their shooting touches after extended absences and only Gordon seems close to his usual level. Hamilton and Prince shot a combined 7-for-29.

"I'm stunned because those are the shots that I usually take," said Hamilton, who is 13-for-54 in three games since returning from a high ankle sprain. "That's probably as many wide-open shots that I've gotten in a long time and I happened to miss them. I kind of expected that with the layoff. [Head coach John Kuester] told me that even before I came back. He said, 'Rip, don't expect to be what you were before you got hurt because it's going to take time.'"

Gordon scored 21 points against his former team, but the Pistons' other top reserve, Charlie Villanueva, continued to flounder. He was 4-for-14 while scoring 10 points. Villanueva is averaging 4.7 points over the last six games.

Without a true low-post presence, the Pistons have to rely on jump shooting and penetration. The jump shots aren't falling and Stuckey is the only player who consistently attacks the basket, especially with Will Bynum sidelined by an ankle sprain.

"We're just not making shots," Kuester said. "Bottom-line, you have to make shots. We had a number of great looks. When you're not making shots, you have to continually attack and you have to get to the foul line."

That didn't happen. The Bulls shot 17 more free throws, along with making 47.8 percent of their field-goal attempts.

"We're building our confidence right now," Noah said. "It feels good to win three in a row."

It's an especially good feeling when there's so much controversy swirling around the franchise.

Asked if he felt he deserved to keep his job before the game, Del Negro remarked, "That's not my decision. It's easy for me to make the decision but it's not my decision to make."

The players then made a statement with their effort.

"I think it's up to the front office to deal with the coaching stuff," said Derrick Rose, who had 22 points. "While he's here, we're going to listen to him and play ball. I'm not even worried about that."
