Bulls lose lead, hit a rare skid

CHICAGO — Goran Dragic scored 21, Luis Scola added 18 points and 12 rebounds, and the Rockets rallied from 15 down to beat the Bulls 99-93 Monday night, giving Chicago back-to-back losses for the first time this season.

The Bulls had gone 86 regular-season games without dropping two in a row, second only to Utah's 95-game run in the late 1990s.

Chicago's Derrick Rose (groin) missed his 11th straight game. The team is considering putting Rose through contact today.

game highlights: O.J. Mayo scored 22 and the visiting Grizzlies beat the Thunder 94-88. … Randy Foye had 28 points, hitting eight 3-pointers and the visiting Clippers won their sixth consecutive game, 94-75 over the Mavericks for their longest winning streak since March 1992.

lottery beats the clubs: Wizards rookie Chris Singleton said it was worth it to buy $10,000 worth of tickets for last week's Mega Millions lottery, adding it was "either that or blowing it in the clubs." The former FSU standout didn't win a share of the top prize of $640 million, but said he won something.

around the league: Cablevision and Madison Square Garden denied a Daily News story that news of Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin's knee injury was withheld until after a ticket-buying deadline had passed. … Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving sat out contact drills as he continues to recover from a sprained right shoulder.

  1. Rays let early lead get away again in loss to Angels (w/video)

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — As pleased as the Rays were to win consecutive series against the contending Red Sox, Indians and Yankees and to get briefly back over .500, there was a lot of talk in the clubhouse before Monday's game against the Angels that it was time to do better.

    Tampa Bay Rays third base coach Charlie Montoyo (25) high fives designated hitter Corey Dickerson (10) as he rounds third on his lead off home run in the first inning of the game between the Tampa Bay Rays and the Los Angeles Angels at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla. on Monday, May 22, 2017.

    OF/DH Corey Dickerson missed out on a good birthday gift when AL player of the week honors went instead to Detroit's J.D. Martinez. Dickerson hit .385 with five homers, nine RBIs and nine runs; Martinez went .389-4-9-7 and got the nod.

  3. Rays journal: Alex Cobb learning to work with what he has

    Sports

    ST. PETERSBURG

    If this were 2012 or 2013, even 2014, RHP Alex Cobb would have problems. He would find himself working with only two of his three pitches, with the missing pitch being his trusty changeup.

    Alex Cobb, working mainly with his fastball and curveball, is 3-1 with a 2.78 ERA over his past five starts. The Rays right-hander tries to continue his strong stretch tonight against the Angels.
