|Bulls Comeback Bid Falls Short in Milwaukee
|MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Andrew Bogut returned with 22 points, 15 rebounds and two big blocks in the closing minutes to rally the Milwaukee Bucks to a 99-97 victory over the Chicago Bulls Monday night after squandering a big lead.
Brad Miller missed a shot at the buzzer that would've tied it after Derrick Rose, who had 17 of his 19 points in the second half, decided to pass up the final opportunity as Chicago lost its fifth straight.
Bogut was supposed to be out up to four weeks with a lower left leg strain, but the former No. 1 pick only missed six games and proved to be the spark Milwaukee badly needed to snap a four-game losing streak.
John Salmons had 23 points for the Bulls.
