Game 36: Bulls 99, Hornets 95

29 Feb 2012

Three Stars (leaderboard)
1. Derrick Rose: 32 points (.555 TS%), 2 rebounds, 9 assists, 3 steals, 2 blocks
2. Joakim Noah: 15 points (.563 TS%), 16 rebounds (6 off.), 5 ast, 2 stl, 2 blk
3. Taj Gibson: 5 points (.512 TS%), 7 rebounds, 2 steals, 5 blocks

MVP checklist:

– Score 13 of your 32 points in the fourth quarter.

– Tie game, 19.4 seconds left, escape the ball-denial efforts of a 6-foot-8 wing man and hit a step-back jumper, fading into the corner away from a 7-foot help defender.

– Protect the lead by staying with the opposing point guard on his drive to the hoop, body him up and force him to miss a tough shot.

– Clinch the win with a pair of free throws for a four-point lead with 10.6 seconds left.

I think we can say Derrick Rose was feeling good last night.

Box Score

Record: 28-8, second in the Eastern Conference
Next: Wednesday 2/29 at San Antonio, 8:00 CT
