(Newser) – The Chicago Bulls put together a 12-0 run in the final four minutes to beat the Washington Wizards 95-84. Caron Butler recorded a triple-double for Washington, which came into the game riding a four-game win streak. Ben Gordon led the way for Chicago with 22 points. Ben Wallace sat out the game with a sore left foot, reports the AP. Elsewhere in the Association:

  • Gerald Wallace scored 26 points and led the Bobcats to a 98-92 victory over the Jazz. Charlotte came back from a 12-point deficit late in the fourth quarter to earn the victory.
  • The Knicks used hustle and heady play to blow out the Cavaliers 108-90. The win may not completely silence the “Fire Isiah” chants, but it quieted them for the moment.
