The Bulls also clinched home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs with Brooklyn falling to Atlanta.

Chicago outscored Detroit 32-24 in the third quarter to pull within 10 and went on a 15-0 run in the fourth to turn an eight-point deficit into a 90-83 edge. The Bulls then hung on in the closing minutes for their 35th win since Jan. 1 — tops in the Eastern Conference. They pulled this one out even though they got dominated by Drummond, who scored 26 and tied a career-high with 26 rebounds. Rodney Stuckey scored 22 points and Brandon Jennings added 17 but the Pistons lost for the 18th time in 20 road games. Detroit was leading 83-75 with just over 10 minutes left in the game when Gibson, who scored 11 in the fourth quarter, hit two free throws to start the decisive rally. Augustin then nailed back-to-back jumpers to make it a two-point game, and after committing a charge, he tied it at 83 when he hit two free throws with 8:10 left. Jimmy Butler then put the Bulls ahead with a layup after Jonas Jerebko missed a 3 for Detroit, and Chicago continued to add to it. A three-point play by Gibson, who landed near the photographers along the baseline, and two more free throws by Augustin put the Bulls up 90-83 with 6:14 remaining. Peyton Siva answered with a 3 for Detroit, but the Bulls stayed in control after that. Chicagos Joakim Noah had six points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists, giving him 408 on the season and putting him in some elite company.

TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie tweeted Monday morning that Callahan - who is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer, is now open to a six-year contract at less than $7 million per season.GLENEAGLES, Scotland - As if players dont already face enough pressure in the Ryder Cup, the walk into golfs most boisterous arena goes through a tunnel of time.One side of the short tunnel is painted American red and celebrates past victories, with images of Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer, Paul Azinger and Ben Hogan. The other side is European blue with a roll call of winners that feature Tony Jacklin and Nick Faldo, Colin Montgomerie and Bernhard Langer.Emerging from the tunnel, players immediately see blue bunting on a three-story hospitality suite with the words, Where Legends are Forged.Take a breath.They make their way to the first tee, where a U-shaped grandstand has 1,892 seats filled with fans who are chanting, singing and stomping.This is no ordinary golf tournament.Its like walking into a football stadium, said Stephen Gallacher, who grew up near Gleneagles and has never seen the course looking like this. Not with fans 10-deep on both sides of the fairway, draped in flags of the European Union, the nine European countries represented, and yes, even the Stars & Stripes.That tunnel has got some iconic images through it, and youll hear the crowd, youll hear the noise, Justin Rose said. You really begin to sense that even on the practice range. The atmosphere really amps up. ... I can only imagine that by the time you walk to the tee, youre fully ready to go. Theres absolutely no doubt.And there was one more touch to add inspiration to the home team.From the first tee, players cant help but notice a message written across the back of the 50-foot grandstand behind the 18th green to the left. Its a quote from Seve Ballesteros, forever the face of European golf in the Ryder Cup.As a player and captain, there are unforgettable moments when you are competing for the people of your continent.Four long days of speculation and anticipation give way to the most frenetic three days in golf, starting with a tee shot unlike any other.Its definitely the most impressive first hole we play throughout our careers, Sergio Garcia said. That tee shot on the first is always different, the way they build it up and all the songs you hear and everything.It all unfolds onFriday morning when Bubba Watson and Webb Simpson go for a third straight victory in fourballs against Rose and Henrik Stenson.CConsidering the last two Ryder Cups — both European victories — were decided by one point, every match matters. Dorance Armstrong Jr. Jersey. Europe has won seven of the last nine times, and it has not lost on home soil since 1993 when Tom Watson was the American captain. Going back in time to change its fortunes, the U.S. team brought back Watson to lead the way. At 65, he is the oldest captain in Ryder Cup history.Watson stuck with what has worked, and he threw in a few wrinkles. Bubba Watson and Simpson won both their fourballs matches at Medinah, wrapping up both of them on the 14th hole. Keegan Bradley and Phil Mickelson went 3-0 at Medinah, and they are the anchor match against Rory McIlroy and Garcia, Europes most powerful tandem.Were looking to hand them their first defeat tomorrow morning, McIlroy said.The new wrinkle? Old Tom Watson created the youngest pairing in Ryder Cup history with 21-year-old Jordan Spieth and 24-year-old Patrick Reed going against Europe stalwart Ian Poulter and Gallacher, another rookie and the lone Scot in a Ryder Cup that has not been held in the home of golf since 1973.I would imagine for the rookies, its going to be a bit of a shock, Lee Westwood said of the first tee. Its a bit of an intimidating atmosphere, but nothing they cant handle.Watson has been preaching redemption from the Americans meltdown at Medinah, where they lost the largest lead ever by a home team. Europe captain Paul McGinley is talking about a template of success, even though his four teams on Friday morning are entirely new.The fun is only starting now, McGinley said. We relish the challenge.Adding to the fun are the final two matches.Poulter is like a peacock, strutting around Gleneagles, eager as ever to show off his Ryder Cup feathers. He was singled out even ahead of McIlroy — a four-time major champion and golfs No. 1 player — as the one guy Americans would love to knock off. Watson is sending out a pair of rookies against him who have nothing to lose.I told them today, Im going to throw you in the ocean without a life preserver. Youre on your own. You get out there and you get it done, Watson said.As for the anchor match involving Mickelson and McIlroy? Watson compared that match with the main event in the first round.Now see what happens in the next 72 hours, he said.
