(Sports Network) – The Chicago Bulls continued to struggle and on Friday
found themselves on the losing end of a 106-93 decision against the Dallas
Mavericks at the United Center.

Kirk Hinrich had a career-high 23 points and 11 boards for the Bulls, who have
dropped six straight and eight of their last nine overall. Jamal Crawford
scored 15 points and handed out seven assists in the losing cause.

Chicago has now lost to Dallas 12 straight times with its last win over the

points in the final stanza.

while Kendall Gill scored 14 and Antonio Davis grabbed a game-high 12 boards
in the loss.

Chicago returns to action on Sunday against the Toronto Raptors.
