Recap: Milwaukee vs. Chicago

Milwaukee, WI (Sports Network) - Nate Robinson scored a game-high 24 points and Jimmy Butler added 18 as the Chicago Bulls cruised past the Milwaukee Bucks, 104-88, at Bradley Center.

Luol Deng had 12 points, 13 rebounds and five assists and Joakim Noah chipped in with 12 points and 12 boards for the Bulls, winners in five of their last six.

"We slowed them down, stopped them in transition and contested many of their shots," Butler said. "They started missing and we went down and capitalized."

Ersan Ilyasova scored 18 points and Brandon Jennings scored 15 points and dished out five assists for the Bucks, who had won five of six entering the contest.

"They played their typical game, they're a big and physical team," said Bucks coach Jim Boylan. "They pound you, they play a physical brand of basketball and it took its toll on us tonight."
