Bulls stop Bucks, 95-86
Gibson, Gasol lead Chicago to win
MILWAUKEE — Derrick Rose returned from his latest injury and helped the Chicago Bulls continue to make themselves at home in Milwaukee with a 95-86 win over the Bucks on Wednesday night.
Taj Gibson scored 23 points, Pau Gasol added 22 and Rose had 13 points and seven assists in 32 minutes for the Bulls, who have beaten the Bucks nine straight times in Milwaukee.
Giannis Antetokounmpo had 13 points and eight rebounds for the Bucks.
With Chicago leading by one, Gasol hit a jumper and Butler made an acrobatic layup.
That started a clinching 9-2 run that was capped by Kirk Hinrich’s 3-pointer with 2:16 remaining.
Rose, who missed most of the past two seasons because of serious knee injuries, sat out the Bulls’ previous two games with sprains in both ankles.
