Rookies lead Bulls to playoff win
CHICAGO — Rookie Ben Gordon scored 12 of his 30 points in the fourth quarter Sunday, lifting the shorthanded Bulls to a 103-94 victory over the Washington Wizards and giving Chicago its first playoff victory since the dynasty days.
Fellow rookie Andres Nocioni also had a huge game, scoring 25 points and grabbing 18 rebounds while playing all 48 minutes.
Gordon scored 10 points as the Bulls opened the fourth quarter with a 13-4 run, then hit a 3 to put Chicago ahead for good, 87-84, with 8:18 to play.
Gilbert Arenas scored nine points — 16 below his average — on 3-of-19 shooting, and Jamison had 14 points.
Heat 116, Nets 98
MIAMI — Both of Miami’s starting guards put up playoff careerhighs in scoring, Dwyane Wade getting 32 points and Damon Jones 30 on 10-for-12 shooting.
Shaquille O’Neal, who suffered a deep right thigh bruise a week ago and has been hampered since, finished with 17 points and 11 rebounds in 32 minutes. He was well off his 27.1-point career playoff scoring average, but with the way Miami’s backcourt performed, the Heat didn’t need as much from their center.
Carter had 27 points and 10 rebounds for New Jersey.
