Hinrich stars for Bulls but injuries mar win

Bulls guard Kirk Hinrich scored a season-high 30 and tied a career high with 13 rebounds Tuesday night in a costly 111-100 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves in which forward Malik Allen was taken to a hospital with an apparent head injury.

Chicago, which snapped a two-game losing streak, also lost guard Chris Duhon to a bruised jaw after he took a shot in the second quarter.

Allen was injured in the second when he rotated to guard a driving Rashad McCants and fell backward into teammate Darius Songaila's knee.

Kevin Garnett's 27 points and 12 rebounds led the Timberwolves, who lost for the 10th time in 13 games.
