LOS ANGELES- On Thursday night the Bulls began their 7-game road trip by opening a can of whoop ass in Los Angeles vs the Lakers, 114-91. Being a team that is in search of an identity like the Bulls are, wins like the one they were able to score over the Lakers are hard to trust, but still a very welcomed sight. Up next are the Clippers who are also coming off a win against the Lakers. The Bulls are looking to continue the stampede through Los Angeles Sunday at 12 vs the Clippers.
Saturday afternoon after Bulls practice #TheBIGS caught up with point guard Derrick Rose. Game was chopped about how he felt after the W over the Lakers where he notched 16pts 7 boards & 5ast; how the team plans to attack Chris Paul and the Clippers, and what to expect from the Bulls in the 6 remaining games on this West Coast road trip. Check out the video up top for the full interview.
