Bulls blow lead, edge Bucks in OT

Oct 25, 2008 - 3:59 AM CHICAGO (Ticker) -- Andres Nocioni scored 26 points as the Chicago Bulls surrendered a 23-point lead before emerging with a 112-104 overtime victory against the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday.

Kirk Hinrich added 25 points and eight assists in place of Derrick Rose, who left the game midway through the first quarter with a strained right hip flexor.

The injury to the No. 1 overall pick did not appear to be serious as Rose returned to the bench later in the game. First-year coach Vinny Del Negro held Rose out as a precaution prior to the season opener Tuesday against Milwaukee.

After Joakim Noah's tip-in tied the game, 95-95, with 42 seconds in regulation, Nocioni gave the Bulls the lead for good with a 3-pointer to open the overtime session.

Chicago, which knocked down 12-of-27 from beyond the arc, converted 3-of-4 attempts in overtime to capture the win in the preseason finale for both teams.

Richard Jefferson scored 21 points to lead the Bucks, who also got 16 points and seven assists from Luke Ridnour.

The Bucks fell to 1-7 while the Bulls improved to 4-4.
