MILWAUKEE (AP) — Carlos Boozer and Richard Hamilton scored 22 points apiece to lead the Chicago Bulls to a 93-86 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday night, breaking a four-game losing streak.

The win by the Bulls was the ninth straight over the Bucks and the fifth straight at the Bradley Center. The last time Milwaukee beat Chicago was on April 10, 2010, in Chicago.

Boozer also grabbed 19 rebounds for the Bulls, who outrebounded the Bucks 54-40.

Brandon Jennings led the Bucks with 23 points and Monta Ellis added 17 points.

Down six midway through the fourth quarter, the Bucks fought back and Ellis hit 16-foot jumper with 5:22 remaining to tie it at 81.

Nate Robinson and Boozer scored to give the Bulls a 85-81 lead with 4:07 remaining in the fourth quarter. Larry Sanders dunked to cut the lead to two with 3:46 remaining.

Luol Deng tipped in a missed shot, but Mike Dunleavy scored on a layup to cut the score to 87-85 with 1:56 remaining.

Ellis missed an 11-foot jumper with 52 seconds remaining. But Boozer grabbed a missed layup by Joakim Noah and dunked the ball to give the Bulls an 89-85 lead with 29 seconds remaining.

Jennings then lost the ball as he drove to the basket and it was grabbed by Noah. Jennings hurt his ankle on the play and did not return to the game. The Bulls hit four free throws down the stretch to close out the game.

The Bucks have lost three straight after opening the season by winning six of their first eight games.
