CLEVELAND (AP) -Ben Gordon made five clutch free throws down the stretch and Larry Hughes scored 19 of his 25 points in the second half against his former team, rallying the Chicago Bulls to a 101-98 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Thursday night.
The Bulls, with nothing to play for in the season's final weeks, came back from 17 points down in the second half to snap a six-game road losing streak.
Hughes, traded by the Cavaliers to Chicago at the Feb. 21 deadline, added nine assists and eight rebounds. Gordon scored 24 points and Luol Deng and Andres Nocioni had 15 each.
LeBron James scored 33 for Cleveland - just one in the fourth quarter on 0-for-5 shooting as his back tightened up.
