SEATTLE, Feb. 5 (UPI) -- Joe Smith scored 25 points and the Chicago Bulls pulled away in the final 8:41 Monday to pocket a 118-108 road victory over the Seattle SuperSonics.

Smith also had 10 rebounds as Chicago broke a two-game streak while ending the Sonics' three-game win streak -- their longest this season. Ben Gordon added 20 points for the Bulls.

Seattle got 21 points from Wally Szczerbiak and 20 from Kevin Durant.

Chicago pretty much led from start to finish, going up 27-25 after the first quarter, 56-49 at halftime and 83-73 going into the final period. Seattle hung around and trailed just 91-84 after a Luke Ridnour three-pointer with 8:41 remaining but could pull no closer the rest of the way.
