After Ben Gordon scored a career-high 48 points yesterday, he was being compared to some pretty impressive company in the Chicago Bulls' locker room.
"If he was 6-[feet]-6[inches], 6-7, man, he would be like Michael Jordan. He's that scary," Bulls guard Adrian Griffin said of the 6-3 Gordon. "He never ceases to impress me. If you look at a guy his size, to do the things he does, it's quite incredible."
Gordon was incredible in leading the Bulls to a 126-121 come-from-behind overtime win over the Bucks in Milwaukee. He made 18 of 32 shots, including six 3-pointers. He took over the game in the second quarter with 15 points to keep the Bulls close and then added 20 points in the fourth quarter, mostly on outside shots.
The Bulls needed every one of his points as they had to overcome 52 points from Michael Redd and an 18-point fourth-quarter deficit.
"I don't hear anything," said Gordon, whose previous career high was 41 points Jan. 2 against Phoenix. "I just block everything out. I don't get tired. I feel like I can run for days. It's a good feeling. It motivates me, makes me want to work harder."
Redd also made 18 of 32 shots, including 8 of 13 3-pointers.
Luol Deng had 27 points, and Kirk Hinrich added 23 points for the Bulls.
Wizards 107, Warriors 106 -- Gilbert Arenas made three free throws with one-10th of a second remaining to lift host Washington past Golden State.
With Washington trailing, 106-104, with 2.9 seconds to go, Arenas caught an inbounds pass near the top of the key and drove to the basket. The horn sounded before Arenas released a shot, but the officials ruled that Golden State's Mickael Pietrus fouled Arenas with time left on the clock.
Warriors coach Don Nelson was issued a technical foul for arguing the call, and Arenas was awarded a total of three free throws. With the crowd on its feet, Arenas nailed all three free throws.
76ers 99, Nets 86 -- Andre Iguodala scored 21 points and host Philadelphia extended its winning streak to a season-high four games.
Willie Green and Kyle Korver each scored 20 points for the Sixers, who rallied from a 17-point deficit in the first quarter for their biggest comeback victory of the season.
Jason Kidd posted his 85th career triple double with 11 points, 14 assists, and 14 rebounds for the Nets. Vince Carter missed his final 14 shots and finished with 9 points.
Suns 99, Lakers 94 -- Steve Nash scored 18 of his 23 points in the second half -- including two free throws with 5.4 seconds to play -- and host Phoenix held on to beat shorthanded Los Angeles.
Leandro Barbosa added 20 points and Amare Stoudemire 17 points and 11 rebounds, but the Suns barely held off a Lakers team without Lamar Odom, out indefinitely after tearing his left labrum Friday, as well as Luke Walton and Vladimir Radmanovic.
SuperSonics 96, Bobcats 89 -- Ray Allen's 3-point play with 1:25 left capped a 34-point game, and host Seattle pulled away to beat Charlotte.
Adam Morrison, playing his first game back in the state where he was a college star at Gonzaga, scored 17 points for the Bobcats.
Jazz 108, Hornets 94 -- Mehmet Okur scored 28 points and Deron Williams added 20, leading Utah past New Orleans in Oklahoma City, the fourth straight road win for the Jazz.
