Bulls 120, Bucks 66

Mike Dunleavy scored 20 points and Chicago came close to an NBA playoff record, finally putting away host Milwaukee in Game 6 to clinch the first-round series Thursday night.

The Bulls, who move on to face the Cavaliers in the second round Monday, finished four points away from the NBA playoff record for largest margin of victory. Minnesota beat St. Louis 133-75 on March 19, 1956.

Dunleavy was in the middle of much of the action. He drew a foul that led to the ejection of Milwaukee’s Giannis Antetokounmpo for a flagrant-2 foul just before halftime.

Pau Gasol scored 19 points and Jimmy Butler added 16 for the Bulls.

LATE WEDNESDAY:?Grizzlies 99, Trail Blazers 93

Marc Gasol had 26 points and 14 rebounds as host Memphis advanced to the Western Conference semifinals by beating Portland on Wednesday night.

The Grizzlies will play Game 1 on Sunday at Golden State.

Courtney Lee added 20 points for Memphis, Zach Randolph had 16 and Jeff Green added 10 off the bench.

CJ McCollum led Portland with a career-high 33 points. Damian Lillard had 22 points and LaMarcus Aldridge had 14.

NOTEBOOK:?Andrew Wiggins honored

Dressed in a blue tuxedo with shiny black lapels, Andrew Wiggins certainly looked the part while collecting his NBA rookie of the year award Thursday. He looked even better on the court in his first season in the league.

Wiggins became the first Minnesota Timberwolves player to win the rookie of the year, and he did it in a landslide. He received 110 of 130 first-place votes and had 604 points in the voting. Chicago’s Nikola Mirotic finished second with 14 first-place votes and 335 points and Philadelphia’s Nerlens Noel was third.

“It means a lot to me. I know it means a lot to the organization and there’s a whole lot of history,” Wiggins said. “It should bring a lot of hope for the future of the Minnesota Timberwolves.”

The Cavaliers drafted Wiggins No. 1 overall last summer, but traded him to the Timberwolves in a deal that sent Kevin Love to Cleveland. Wiggins averaged 16.9 points and 4.6 rebounds while playing all 82 games in his first season.

Coach hired for Thunder

The Oklahoma City Thunder hired Florida’s Billy Donovan as their new coach.

Donovan, 49, led Florida to two national championships, four Final Fours, seven Elite Eights and 14 NCAA Tournament berths in 19 years. He signed a one-year contract extension with the Gators in December that would have paid him an average salary of $4 million through 2020.

Donovan inherits a team with 2013-14 MVP Kevin Durant and 2014-15 scoring champion Russell Westbrook.

He replaces Scott Brooks, who was fired last week.

Kelly Olynyk defended

Boston Celtics General Manager Danny Ainge came to the defense of forward Kelly Olynyk for the play that injured Cavaliers forward Kevin Love.

Ainge said Love was “a little over the top” in his complaint that Olynyk tried to hurt him on purpose. Ainge said he sympathizes with Love, who had waited his whole career to make the playoffs. Love will miss four to six months after having surgery for a dislocated shoulder.

Ainge said he thought it was “just a foul — two guys going for a loose ball.”

Magic GM wins extension

The Orlando Magic extended General Manager Rob Hennigan’s contract through the 2017-18 season. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Hennigan just completed his third season as the Magic’s leader of basketball operations, and was entering the final year of his contract.

Magic CEO Alex Martin said Hennigan’s leadership is putting the team in position “to contend in a long-term, sustainable fashion.” Hennigan is leading the search for a coach after the dismissal of Jacque Vaughn in February.
