Recap

Bulls end losing streak with win over Timberwolves

CHICAGO (NBA.com exclusive) -- The Minnesota Timberwolves showed up on the schedule at just the right time for the Chicago Bulls.

Joakim Noah and Kirk Hinrich each scored 20 points, and the Bulls set a season high for points in a runaway 110-96 win over the visiting Timberwolves. The decision ended the Bulls' three-game losing streak, while the Timberwolves lost for the sixth time in the last seven games.

After shooting 56 percent in the first quarter, the Timberwolves, fresh off a big win over Indiana Friday, just ran out of gas the final three quarters and the Bulls took advantage.

Led by Noah's nine-for-13 performance, the Bulls shot 52 percent for the game, made seven of 14 3-pointers, and cruised to their fifth win in the last eight games.

"It just feels good to win,'' Noah said. "We've been going through a tough little stretch as a team and it's good to play well and to play with good energy tonight. If we can play with some level of consistency, that's what would really help us."

There are signs the Bulls are improving on offense. In the first 18 games of the season, most of them with reserve forward Tyrus Thomas out with a broken arm, the Bulls reached the century mark just once. But the Bulls have scored at least 100 points in four of their last seven games, and they are 5-2 when scoring that many points.

"We feel like when we come to play, we can compete with most teams,'' Hinrich said. "When we don't, we are going to get beat."

John Salmons had 14 points, Taj Gibson had 13 points and Brad Miller had 12 as the Bulls bench contributed 39 points to the effort.

It was the first time in the last seven games that Derrick Rose was not the Bulls' leading scorer. Rose had only eight points on three-for-eight shooting, but he had seven assists.

"Everyone contributed in their own way,'' Bulls coach Vinny Del Negro said. "That is what it is about as a team."

Ryan Gomes led the Timberwolves with 15 points off the bench. Jonny Flynn had 14 points but had six of them in the first quarter. Al Jefferson had just 12 points and Kevin Love was three for eight for eight points.

"Both Kevin and Al had a tough night,'' Minnesota coach Kurt Rambis said. "It was evident as the game went on that they looked more and more tired. Their bigs did a good job on them. With our offense not there we lost our focus as the game went on."

The Timberwolves (8-30) held the lead for most of the first quarter, going up by as many as 10 points, 14-4, with four of the five Minnesota starters scoring early. The Bulls (15-20) stayed close, thanks to a pair of 3-pointers by Hinrich, but the Wolves led 32-28 at the end of the quarter.

The Wolves played a far more active style through the first 12 minutes, picking up five steals to go with 56 percent shooting.

The Bulls took their first lead of the game 35-34 on a long jumper by Tyrus Thomas. At that point, the Bulls had received 13 points from bench players, led by five points from Salmons.

Gibson, who played one of his better games in recent memory, scored the last four Bulls points of the first half, and the home team had a 52-46 lead at the break. The Bulls shot 50 percent from the field (21 for 42) in the first half, including a 4-for-8 showing from 3-point range. Hinrich had 11 points at the break, and Noah had 10 points for the Bulls. The Timberwolves scored just 14 points in the second quarter, and they were just 1-for-7 from long range. They stopped attacking the basket on a regular basis but could not hit enough outside shots to stay on top.

"We came out with a lot of energy in that first quarter, but then they stepped on the gas and we went the other direction,'' Gomes said. "They kept pushing and pushing and their bench played well for them and gave them a spark. The starters came back at the start of the third quarter and put the lead in double digits and we just couldn't get back in."

After building a 62-48 lead in the third quarter, the Bulls tried to let the visitors back into the ballgame with three quick passing errors, two by Noah. But the Wolves could not get closer than 10 points until Brian Cardinal made a 3-pointer with 2:30 left in the period to close the gap to nine points, 71-62.

The Bulls came back to attack the basket consistently, and when Salmons made a running twisting layup, the Bulls led 79-64 just before the end of the quarter.

It was Gibson again who hit a short flip shot to give the Bulls their first 20-point lead, 90-70, with just under nine minutes left in the game.

The Wolves scored seven straight points in hopes of getting back into it, but James Johnson hit a surprise 3-pointer to end the run and give the Bulls a 93-77 lead with 7:30 left.
