Chicago Bulls vs. Milwaukee Bucks 1/30/13: Video Highlights and Recap

Tim KeeneyContributor IJanuary 31, 2013

No Carlos Boozer, no problem.

The Chicago Bulls were without their star power forward (sore right hamstring) against the secretly-above-.500 Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night, but they still rolled to a 104-88 road win.

In just his second start of the season, Taj Gibson tallied 14 points, nine rebounds, two assists and two blocks while four others scored in double figures for the Bulls, who improved to 28-17 with the victory. 

Samuel Dalembert had 14 points, 13 rebounds and four blocks for the Bucks, who were without Larry Sanders (illness), but it wasn't enough as they dropped to 24-20 on the season.

Player of the Game: Nate Robinson

Gibson stepped up huge in place of Boozer, and Joakim Noah had 12 points, 12 rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block, but Nate Robinson's amazingly efficient night off the bench deserves recognition. 

The stick-of-dynamite point guard played just 26 minutes, but somehow found time to rack up 24 points (on a ridiculous 9-of-11 shooting) to go with four assists and three steals. 

Add in a plus/minus of plus-20, and it was a near-perfect night for Nate Rob. 


Up Next for Chicago

The Bulls, winners of five of their last six, head to Brooklyn to face the Nets on Friday night. 


Up Next for Milwaukee

Milwaukee also heads to the state of New York, as it will take on the Knicks on the same night.
