The Milwaukee Bucks rallied from 27 points down to beat the Bulls in Chicago Monday night 93-92. The Bulls steadily pulled in front as Richard Hamilton poured in a season high 30. Kirk Heinrich added 17 points and 6 assists and it looked like Chicago would easily sweep the home and home set with the Bucks. The Bulls won at the Bradley Center 93-86 on Saturday night. But down 17 to start the fourth quarter, the Bucks stormed back thanks to their bench. Ersan Ilyasova scored 12 of his team high 18 points in the period. Beno Udrih and Epke Udoh, both reserves, were also on the floor for the entire quarter, finishing with 11 points each. Chicago had one last chance at a victory but Hamilton's shot at the buzzer missed. Milwaukee snapped a three game losing streak and denied Chicago a chance to overtake the lead in the Central Division. The Bucks (7-5) lead the division by a game and a half and they return to the Bradley Center Wednesday night to host the New York Knicks.
