Rose back, Gasol and Gibson lead Bulls past Bucks

Milwaukee, WI ( – Pau Gasol and Taj Gibson were dominant
against a thin Milwaukee Bucks frontline on Wednesday, combining for 45 points
and 24 rebounds to lead the Chicago Bulls to a 95-86 win.

Gasol and Gibson more than made up for the absence of All-Star center Joakim
Noah, who missed his second straight game with an illness. Gasol had 22 points
and 14 rebounds while Gibson tallied a game-high 23 points with 10 boards.

Derrick Rose returned after missing two games with two sprained ankles and
donated 13 points with seven assists, while Jimmy Butler contributed 12
points, seven helpers and four steals in Chicago’s third straight win.

Giannis Antetokounmpo paced the Bucks with 13 points off the bench, while
Brandon Knight stuffed the stat sheet with 10 points, nine rebounds, seven
assists and five steals but shot just 3-of-15 from the field.
