Bulls advance


Chicago came close to setting an NBA play-off record for margin of victory, as the Bulls routed Milwaukee 120-66 on Thursday to complete a 4-2 series win against the Bucks and move into the final eight of the postseason.

In the day's other play-off game, the Los Angeles Clippers pulled out an impressive road win at San Antonio to avoid elimination and square that Western Conference series at 3-3.

Amid all the Bulls' star power, Mike Dunleavy was the unlikely top scorer with 20 points, and also got under the skin of the young Bucks with some physical play that sparked retaliation.

The Bulls, who move on to face Cleveland in the second round, finished four points from the NBA play-off record for largest margin of victory. Minnesota beat St Louis 133-75 on March 19, 1956.
