=== Chicago Bulls Team Report – January 25 ===

(Sports Network) – The Chicago Bulls seek their fourth consecutive win
tonight when they welcome the Denver Nuggets to the United Center.

The surging Bulls have won 10 of their last 11 games overall, and have drawn
within 3 1/2 games of the first-place Cleveland Cavaliers in the Central
Division standings.

On Monday, Eddy Curry scored 19 points to lead six Bulls in double figures, as
Chicago routed the Atlanta Hawks, 107-82, at Philips Arena.

Othello Harrington had 18 and Ben Gordon added 15 for the Bulls, who are over
.500 for the first time since opening the 2002-03 campaign with back-to-back
wins. Chris Duhon, who hit four three-pointers in the first half, finished
with 14 points, Luol Deng chipped in with 13 and Kirk Hinrich ended with 11
for the red-hot Bulls.

The Bulls, who have won six straight at home, will begin a three-game stand
tonight. After this set they will head out on a five-game road swing beginning
February 1.

The Nuggets defeated the Bulls, 99-91, in Denver on November 19 and have won
three straight games in the series.

Along with the tonight’s contest against the Nuggets, Chicago will host
Charlotte (Thursday) and Boston (Saturday) this week. The Bulls currently
reside in a tie for third place in the Central with Indiana, 3 1/2 games
behind Cleveland.
