=== Chicago Bulls Team Report – November 23 ===

(Sports Network) – The Chicago Bulls remained winless on the season on
Monday, as they dropped a 100-82 decision against the Phoenix Suns at America
West Arena.

Ben Gordon — who hit 7-of-16 shots from the field — scored a career-high 20
points off the bench for the Bulls, who tied the franchise record by losing
nine games to start a season. They also accomplished the feat to open the
1967-68 campaign.

Eddy Curry added 17 points for Chicago, which has dropped seven straight in

Chicago got within 71-61 on a short jumper by Gordon with less than three
minutes to go in the third, but trailed 77-64 at the end of the quarter.
However, Amare Stoudemire’s dunk less than four minutes into the fourth
quarter capped a eight-point flurry that put the Suns ahead 85-64.

The Bulls pulled within 85-68 on a basket by Curry less than a minute later,
but no closer.

Tyson Chandler finished with 10 points and nine boards for the Bulls, who fell
to 0-6 on the road this season.

The Bulls will continue their season-long seven-game road trip on Wednesday
against the Utah Jazz.
