Rip Hamilton gets banged up but seems OK
Richard Hamilton wasn't sure he was healthy enough to return to the game.
It didn't matter, he was going back on the floor for the Chicago Bulls.
Hamilton left the game in the third quarter with a left ankle injury, then returned to hit three of four free throws in the final 20 seconds to clinch a 93-88 win over the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday night.
Luol Deng scored a game-high 25 points. He also had a season-high seven assists and has led the team in scoring in consecutive games. He scored 22 in a 101-78 win over the Dallas Mavericks.
Hamilton finished with 15 points for the Bulls, who played the 76ers for the first time since last season's first-round playoff series.
