Video: Derrick Rose jumper sends Bulls into OT vs. Pistons

Apr 15, 2012, 11:54 PM EDT

You can argue if you want the Bulls should not have had to work this hard to put the Pistons away, but there are just days like that in the NBA. Plus, the Pistons will put up a fight at home, have a few quality players and are really the best bad team in the NBA.

But they don’t have Derrick Rose, and it is his three with less than 7 seconds left in the game — over the long arms of Greg Monroe — that sends the Bulls into overtime with the Pistons. The Bulls went on to get the win. They will go into the playoffs with the best record in the league, and more importantly Rose seems to be finding his footing again. They are contenders, in part because of plays like this.

    The Bulls didn’t play great, but the Pistons undisciplined, chaotic style of play seemed to make them worse. Once Derrick tied the game and sent them to overtime it was much like the Heat game–game over. The most noteworthy thing about this game was that except for Korver, the bench was almost completely ineffective.
