Derrick Rose scored 30 points and helped the Chicago Bulls take a major step closer to clinching the top seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs. Rose was a highlight reel once again including an incredible cross-over on Rajon Rondo with a circus layup to finish off the play (video below). Luol Deng scored 23 points, and Carlos Boozer added 14 points and 12 rebounds for the Bulls.
Rose said following the game:
“I always said that we could compete with some of the best teams in the NBA, at training camp and in the beginning of the year, I thought my team’s ready to fight. I just saw what we were going through in training camp. Guys were keyed in and focused, making sure that they came in very, very hungry, wanting to win.”
