D. Rose and Pau speak after a 99-90 win over the Denver Nuggets. Rose finished the game with 12 pts and 9 ast (3-17 fg) and Gasol had 26 pts 19 rebs and 4 blks. Jimmy Buckets contributed 19 pts and 6 rebs and Joakim Noah chipped in 9 pts and 11 rebs. Doug McBuckets was once again a spark off the bench with 11 pts.
The Bulls are 11-5 overall and 7-1 at home. They’ve played a few ugly games so far and the offense has been stagnant at times but I think they’re in a good place. Still feeling each other out on the offensive end and getting the defensive philosophy down will take some time but the talent is there. Hopefully at the end of the road, we can blame the last 5 seasons on Thibs!
Next game – Sat 12/5 v Charlotte Hornets at the UC 7pm
