|Bulls Bury Detroit; Pistons Losing Streak Grows to 13
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Luol Deng scored 27 points on 13-of-18 shooting and the Chicago Bulls handed the Detroit Pistons their 13th consecutive loss, 120-87 Monday night.
Detroit matched its longest skid since losing 13 straight to end the 1993-94 season.
After three consecutive losses, Chicago rebounded with a lopsided win against Minnesota on Saturday, and then took advantage of a depleted Pistons team playing again without Tayshaun Prince.
Derrick Rose finished with 22 points on 11-of-13 shooting for the Bulls, who shot 57.1 percent overall, including 70.6 percent in the third quarter.
Rookie Jonas Jerebko had 15 points and nine rebounds and Richard Hamilton added 17 points for the Pistons, who last won on Dec. 12, against Golden State.
