BULLS (22-12) 101 CELTICS (19-17) 92
6 In Double Figures As Bulls Win 6th In A Row
Winning silences a lot! Jimmy Butler had 19 points and a career high tying 10 assists as he led 6 Bulls players in double figures in a 101-92 win over the Boston Celtics. The win was the sixth in a row and their fifth straight at home. Derrick Rose (18 pts 7 rbs) Pau Gasol (17 pts 18 rebs) Niko Mirotic (11 pts 8 rebs) Taj Gibson (10 pts 5 rebs) and Tony Snell (10 pts) all had solid contributions.
“Derrick has got his rhythm back. It’s good to see him sharing the ball with Butler and they play off each other and it makes us much better. As long as we keep the ball moving, that has given us a lot of success as of late,” says coach Hoiberg. “Pau has an unbelievable IQ. I believe he is one of the smartest players in the league. He is always giving suggestions in the huddle. I believe he is very underrated at the rim and with his ability to change shots.”
The Bulls will fly to Atlanta to face the Hawks Saturday at 4pm on WGN.
*One of these days (or maybe not) the referees will blow their whistle for Rose. They show no respect at all…
