What Derrick Rose did Friday night to the Atlanta Hawks is illegal in 14 states.
He showed why he was named MVP. He showed why the Hawks were always going to be in a lot of trouble in this series, because they had nobody who could stop Rose. (Well, that and the Hawks were going to struggle to score against the lock down Bulls defense.)
Rose put on a clinic Friday night and the Bulls took charge of the series. He he plays like this again Sunday and this series will be all but over.
- Rumor: Kevin Love out minimum of two weeks, will likely miss most or all of series vs. Bulls 27
- Monta Ellis, J.J. Barea pairing ignites Mavericks offense, gets Dallas Game 4 win over Houston 4
- Wizards blow out Raptors to complete first-round sweep 17
- Chris Paul scores 34 points, Clippers win Game 4 to even series with Spurs 6
- Cavaliers advance to second round – but but maybe lose Kevin Love and moral high ground in process 60
- Mike Conley out for Game 4 with “serious” facial injury, no timetable for return 6
- Grizzlies start fast, hang on to beat Portland, take 3-0 series lead 2
- Bucks outwork Bulls, stay alive on Jerryd Bayless game-winner 6
