|Road Warriors: Clippers Top Bulls for 2nd Straight
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Blake Griffin scored 29 points and Vinny Del Negro made a triumphant return to the United Center as the Los Angeles Clippers beat Chicago 100-99 on Saturday night, stopping the Bulls' seven-game winning streak.
Chicago guard Derrick Rose, fouled with 0.8 seconds remaining as he drove to the basket, hit the first free throw but missed the second with a chance to tie, giving the Clippers their second road win in two nights. Before that, Los Angeles had lost 15 consecutive games away from home, including its first 11 this season.
Rose led the Bulls with 34 points and Carlos Boozer added 25 but Chicago's fourth-quarter rally fell short. Griffin also had 12 rebounds for his 15th straight double-double.
