|Hot Shooting Bulls Stop Spurs for Third Straight Win
|SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- Derrick Rose shook off flulike symptoms to score 27 points and the Chicago Bulls won their third straight, 98-93 victory over the San Antonio Spurs Monday night.
Kirk Hinrich added 18 points for the Bulls, who again impressively beat a Western Conference team with a winning record on their seven-game road swing after surprising Houston and Phoenix last week.
Put it another way: the Bulls have won just one fewer road game in the last four days than they have in the first three months of the season. The Bulls are now 7-15 on the road.
Tony Parker scored 20 points for the Spurs, who have lost five of six. Manu Ginobili scored 14 but was denied twice while barreling to the rim in the final 33 seconds.
