Bulls beat Bucks, win fourth straight

CHICAGO — Jimmy Butler and Kirk Hinrich had 17 points apiece to lead seven players in double figures, and the Chicago Bulls, despite some occasional lapses in the fourth quarter, cruised to a 102-90 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday night.

Carlos Boozer and D.J. Augustin scored 14 points apiece. Taj Gibson added 13, Mike Dunleavy 12 and Joakim Noah had 11 points and 13 rebounds.

The Bulls have won four straight and six of seven, and remained tied with the Toronto Raptors for third in the Eastern Conference. The Bulls (44-32) face Washington, a possible first-round opponent, on Saturday.

Brandon Knight had 22 points before fouling out with just over two minutes left for Milwaukee. Jeff Adrien added 21 points for the Bucks, who have dropped four straight overall and 12 straight on the road.
