It was quite a memorable night on Wednesday in Chicago as the Central Division leading Bulls beat the Milwaukee Bucks 110-91. The fans were treated to a historic event as well as Joakim Noah, with his 13 points, 13 rebounds, and 10 assists, became the first Bulls center to record a triple-double since Artis Gilmore did it 35 years ago on December 20, 1977 against the Atlanta Hawks!
Carlos Boozer poured in 20 points while Luol Deng and Derrick Rose added 16 apiece. Ronnie Brewer (15), reserves Kyle Korver (11) and Taj Gibson (10) all contributed scoring in double digits. But the night definitely belonged to J-No who fired up the crowd several times with his dunks, ( he had a gem against Beno Udrih), jumpers, and his stellar defense, all of which led to the Bulls easily garnering their seventh straight win over the Bucks.
“We got the W! It’s my birthday in a couple of days; there’s going to be a team function tonight with all the Bulls players, so it’s going to be fun.”
