Derrick Rose has an ability to knife through the defense and find a way to get off a shot when none seems to exist that is second to none.

Bulls backup point guard C.J. Watson has been watching that all season and apparently it has rubbed off a little.

Take a look at this shot from the Bulls destruction of the Hawks Tuesday, where Watson twists and hangs and finds a way to get the bucket when there seemed to be no path. Very Rose-like.

    Shorty Watson has been playing surprisingly well of late, but then again so are ALL of the Bulls! Earlier this season Shorty was badly miscast by being put on the floor at the same time with Derrek Rose, but now that Tibedeau has settles into using 2 complete units, Shorty’s really excelled.
