Bulls run over Bucks

CHICAGO -- The NBA all-star break couldn't come soon enough for the beaten and battered Milwaukee Bucks.  They lost for the third time in as many games this season to the Bulls, 110-91.

The undermanned Bucks went into the United Center, where they own an abysmal 8-30 record, and couldn't compete with one of the league's elite teams.  Scott Skiles' squad didn't have Andrew Bogut, Drew Gooden, Tobias Harris or Stephen Jackson (the latter stayed home to nurse a hamstring injury).

John Leuer was a bight spot. The former Wisconsin Badgers star scored 14 points. Brandon Jennings had a team-high 20.  Derrick Rose scored 11 of his 16 points in the first half for the host.

The thorn in Milwaukee's side was Joakim Noah, who posted his first career triple double (13 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists). The Bucks limped into the All Star break with a 13-20 record, including six losses in their last seven games.
