Bulls Heating Up
The Bulls won their third straight game last night - and their fifth in six games - beating the Minnesota Timberwolves 100-94. It was a close game throughout with the Bulls trailing by three at the half. But the team broke it open with an 11-2 run to start the fourth quarter to pull ahead for good. Kirk Hinrich led the team with 20 points and Derrick Rose followed with 19. Luol Deng also contributed with 18. Now 2 games over .500 at 28-26, the Bulls remain in second place in the division and sixth place overall in the Eastern Conference. If the playoffs started today, they'd find themselves in a first-round playoff rematch with the Boston Celtics. They hope to keep the winning streak rolling when they play host to the Philadelphia 76ers tonight (7 p.m., WGN).
