(Newser) – It was a night billed in Oakland as the return of Chris. The only problem for the Warriors was the wrong Chris shined last night in a 114-108 loss to the Chicago Bulls, reports the San Francisco Chronicle. Chris Webber was making his return to the team that drafted him in 1994, but Chicago's Chris Duhon spoiled the party with 34 points.

Webber, on the other hand, exposed some rust with just four points and one rebound in 12:38. The Warriors were coming off a five-day layoff and it showed as the second-highest scoring team in the NBA hit just 38 percent of its shots. The Bulls didn't play like a team on the second night of a back-to-back, missing starters Luol Deng and Ben Gordon.
