Game 21 Recap: Bull 88, Lakers 84

Going into last night’s game against the Lakers, I was mad. In case you missed it, there was a post about Derrick Rose on TrueHoop yesterday. It highlighted a recent post on HoopSpeak in which bloggers Beckley Mason and Ethan Sherwood Strauss took pot shots at everything from Rose’s personality (or, in their view, his […]

Game 20 Recap: Bulls 88, Cavaliers 83

It almost happened. The Bulls were this close to falling into the trap. The Cavaliers entered last night’s game having lost five in a row by an average of 22.2 points per defeat. In each of those five losses, the Cavs had given up more than 100 points. Finally, Cleveland coach Byron Scott pulled out the defibrillator […]

Game 19 Recap: Bulls 99, Thunder 90

This is why the Bulls brought in Carlos Boozer. On a night when Derrick Rose (3-for-13) and Joakim Noah (3-for-8) apparently lost motor control in their shooting hands, Boozer picked up the slack and then some, scoring 29 points on 13-for-21 from the field to go along with 12 rebounds, an assist and a steal. […]

Game 18 Recap: Bulls 119, Rockets 116

Here are some quick thoughts about the Bulls’ win over the Rockets. Thinks I liked: It was nice to see the team bounce back with a spirited effort after two straight lopsided defeats. The Bulls shot 50 percent as a team, won the rebounding battle 49-37 (including 15-8 on the offensive glass), ran out for […]

Circus Trip: Bulls 95, Rockets 92

Derrick Rose. Wow. When Rose got benched because of his fourth foul with 5:31 left in the third quarter, the Bulls were leading 60-58. By the time coach Tom Thibodeu subbed him back in to start the fourth, Chicago had fallen behind 71-63 and the Rockets seemed to have all the momentum on their side. […]

Derrick Rose has turf toe

According to ESPNChicago.com’s Nick Friedell: “Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose revealed after practice Tuesday that he has been dealing with turf toe in his left big toe since last season. Rose believes the injury happened some time during last season’s playoff series against the Cleveland Cavaliers.” Derrick isn’t expected to miss any time. Thankfully. Said Rose: […]

Derrick Rose’s monster slam

There weren’t many highlights for the Bulls in last night’s depressing loss to the Knicks. It was mostly lowlights involving New York players raining threes. But this bone-rattling slam dunk by Rose was awesome enough to earn its own post: And now again, only in HD and with replays: Sadly, this dunk would have been […]

Derrick Rose: Looking for contact

I’m a D-Rose fan, but one of my consistent (some might say constant) complaints has been about how rarely he gets to the line. To wit: 3.1 FTAs during his rookie season and 4.3 FTAs last year. Superstars need to earn freebies. For further reading, refer to the collected box scores of Dwyane Wade, LeBron […]
