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.
