The Bucks pulled to 94-91 after a 14-4 run capped by Beno Udrih's two free throws with 3:02 left.

Robinson responded with a jumper, and Hamilton and Carlos Boozer each hit two free throws to put the game away.

Milwaukee pulled within six in the third quarter, but the Bulls answered with a 13-3 run for a 79-63 lead.
