Sam Smith:
Bulls have trouble with Big D – Dirk

After a disappointing end to their longest winning streak in two months, a matchup with the sputtering Detroit Pistons should help
the Chicago Bulls bounce back.

Chicago (39-32) matched a season high with its third straight win when it ended Miami’s 27-game run Wednesday, and appeared to be on its way to another victory Saturday with a 12-point lead in Dallas with 3:33 to go.

Instead, the Bulls were denied their fourth straight win as the Mavericks closed the contest on a 15-1 run and Dirk Nowitzki hit a 3-pointer with 2.9 seconds left to give Dallas a 100-98 victory.

“This was definitely a tough loss,” guard Kirk Hinrich said. “We just didn’t finish it out.”

Chicago’s streak – its longest since Jan. 21-25 – had come at an unlikely time, considering the team continues to be without a number of key players. Derrick Rose (knee) and Richard Hamilton (lower back) aren’t expected to return Sunday, while Joakim Noah (right foot) and Marco Belinelli (abdominal strain) will be game-time decisions.

Noah’s return could be big for the Bulls since he’s averaged 19.8 points and 17.5 rebounds in his last four games against the Pistons.

Nate Robinson, who hit all seven of his 3-point attempts on the way to 25 points Saturday, scored nine of his 11 points early in the fourth to lead the Bulls back from 17 down for their 17th straight victory over Detroit in an 85-82 home win on Jan. 23. That’s the league’s second-longest active streak against one opponent.

The Bulls haven’t lost to the Pistons since Dec. 23, 2008, and have reeled off 13 consecutive regular-season victories at the United Center over Detroit since Feb. 24, 2006.

Carlos Boozer heads into this contest averaging 20.8 points on 58.7 percent shooting and 12.5 boards over his last four games.

Luol Deng has totaled 53 points and has hit 8 of 15 from 3-point range in his last two contests, but has averaged just 8.8 on 32.1 percent shooting in his last five in this series.

The Bulls have scored 101.0 per game – 8.0 above their season average – and made 30 of 69 (43.5 percent) from beyond the arc in their last three. They should be able to keep it going against the Pistons, who have allowed 107.3 points and 42.8 percent shooting from 3-point range in their last nine games.

After trailing Toronto by one point at the half Friday, Detroit (24-49) was outscored 36-15 in the third quarter on the way to a 99-82 home loss.

Jonas Jerebko had 20 points on 9-of-14 shooting to lead the Pistons, who have lost 12 of 13 this month.

“It just doesn’t add up when you’re competitive for a half,” coach Lawrence Frank said. “It just snowballed on us. This is embarrassing.”

Rookie Andre Drummond could give the team a lift after scoring 17 on 8-of-10 shooting in 19 minutes in his first action since missing 22 games because of a stress fracture in his lower back.

The Pistons, 9-26 on the road, are averaging 85.4 points over their last five games overall, and 80.9 in their last seven in Chicago.

Sam Smith: Sometimes the other guy is just too good and he gets you as Dirk Nowitzki did to the Bulls Saturday with a phenomenal shooting performance, 14 of 17 mostly tough shots for 35 points in an unlikely 100-98 Dallas Mavericks comeback win.

“Contested, off balance, off one leg,” muttered a dejected Jimmy Butler. “He’s a really hard person to guard. You’ve got to challenge every one and make it as difficult as possible.”

The Bulls did, though it ended stunningly with 15 Nowitzki fourth quarter points, including the three-point winner with 2.9 seconds left to finish a 15-1 Dallas run to end the game.

“Dirk was able to free up and took us out,” said Kirk Hinrich. “He’s made a career out of doing that. This was definitely a tough loss. I thought we played with high intensity most of the game. We just didn’t finish it out.”
