Salmons, Bucks grind out win over Bulls, clinch playoff bid

CHICAGO (NBA.com exclusive) -- John Salmons made the Chicago Bulls pay for the trading deadline deal that sent him to Milwaukee.

Salmons, who was traded to the Bucks by the Bulls Feb. 18 for Hakim Warrick, scored 26 points to lead visiting Milwaukee to a 79-74 victory over the Bulls at the United Center. The Bucks won the game despite shooting 36 percent from the field, outscoring the host Bulls 16-7 from the free throw line.

The victory lifted them to 43-34 for the season and into a tie with the Miami Heat for the fifth spot in the Eastern Conference playoffs. It also clinched a playoff spot for the team.

Opportunity knocked for the Bulls but they were incapable of answering. When the Toronto Raptors lost to Cleveland 113-101 earlier Tuesday, the Bulls had a chance to pull into a tie with the Raptors for the eighth playoff spot in the East. Instead they fell to 37-40, one game behind. The Bulls have the added burden of having lost the season series with Toronto, although the two teams meet again Sunday in Toronto.

Milwaukee got 37 points from its bench led by Ersan Ilyasova's 17 points. Luke Ridnour had 13 points making up for the 1-for-8, four-point showing for starting rookie point guard Brandon Jennings.

Luol Deng led the Bulls with 16 points but he was 6-for-17 from the field. Kirk Hinrich was 4-for-16 as the Bulls shot 43 percent and committed 16 turnovers.

Bulls coach Vinny Del Negro depended heavily on his starting lineup. Reserves Flip Murray and Brad Miller played 18 and 17 minutes, respectively, but Warrick played only four minutes, Jannero Pargo played six and James Johnson, a game-time decision because of plantar fasciitis issues, played only four.

Displaying the strength of their roster, the Milwaukee Bucks survived the loss of injured center Andrew Bogut for one game, dominating the host Bulls after a lackluster first quarter. Veteran Kurt Thomas started in Bogut's place and grabbed a game-high 14 rebounds in 32 minutes.

"Without Andrew, we just don't have an inside presence,'' Thomas said. "We really miss his defense, blocked shots and scoring. But it was nice to hear Scott [Skiles] say, 'great job' as I left the floor tonight."

The Bulls clearly did not take advantage of Bogut's absence.

"We only got to the line 11 times so we were not attacking the basket,'' Del Negro said. "We held them to 36 percent shooting but you are not going to beat many teams scoring 74 points. It was not a solid 48 minutes for us."

The Bulls ran out to a 27-14 lead in the first quarter fresh off the knowledge the Cavaliers were dominating the Raptors. The Bulls went 11 for 16 from the field in the first quarter and held the Bucks to 6-for-21 shooting. Joakim Noah had five rebounds in the game's first six minutes to lead the Bulls to a 14-5 rebounding edge.

But the Bulls played horrible offense through the second and third quarters, taking wild and ill-advised shots time and again. The Bucks, meanwhile, were being carried by their bench, which helped them through a 20-2 run in the second quarter on the way to a 42-36 halftime lead.

The Bulls went 3 for 17 from the field in the second quarter.

"In the second quarter we picked it up and created turnovers that helped us finish the first half,''' Milwaukee coach Scott Skiles said. "We were able to take a lead and get the momentum on our side. We played really hard even though it was not a pretty game."

The third quarter was more of the same. Salmons hit one of his three 3-pointers on a feed from Jennings to give Milwaukee a 47-38 lead, and his drive and feed to Ilyasova gave the Bucks a 60-51 lead heading into the fourth quarter.

The Bulls found life in the final period, playing more actively offensively and playing the same defense they featured in the first quarter. The Bulls started the fourth quarter on a 12-3 run, tying the game on a drive by Derrick Rose that was followed by a Hinrich jumper for a 65-63 Bulls lead.

The Bucks regained the lead and then dominated the final four minutes. Thomas scored one of his two baskets on a short jumper to push the Bucks ahead 74-70, then after a missed 3-pointer by Miller, Thomas rebounded a Carlos Delfino 3-point miss and got the ball out to Salmons for a drive past Deng and a 76-70 lead.

The Bulls made some poor offensive decisions thereafter, losing the ball on a Miller drive to the basket at 77-74 when they needed a 3-pointer.

"We weren't making shots,'' said Rose, who had 12 points, 11 assists and six turnovers. "We weren't passing the ball enough. Everyone just couldn't get in a groove today. We haven't played this way in a while."
