SAN ANTONIO (Ticker) - Two in a row in San Antonio for the
Chicago Bulls is not totally out of the question.
The Bulls go for just their second win here since 1998 against
the Spurs on Friday.
Chicago ended a six-game losing streak in San Antonio that dated
to March 14, 1998 with a 106-99 triumph here last season. The
Bulls also snapped a nine-game slide overall against the Spurs.
Even though Chicago has dropped four straight road contests this
campaign, San Antonio has been vulnerable at the AT&T Center in
the early part of the season. The Spurs had their 16-game home
winning streak against the Cleveland Cavaliers ended before
falling to the Charlotte Bobcats here Wednesday.
However, the Bulls fell to 0-2 on their seven-game road trip
following a 101-100 shortcoming to the Houston Rockets on
Thursday. Ben Gordon scored 37 points off the bench and Luol
Deng added 15 for Chicago, which nearly erased a 21-point
San Antonio suffered a 95-92 overtime loss Wednesday. Tony
Parker scored 25 points and Tim Duncan collected 24 and 13
rebounds for the Spurs, who went just 2-of-17 from 3-point
