BULLS ANALYSIS: Derrick Rose Has Off Night, But Bulls Win Anyway; Andray Blatche Video

In the fourth quarter, the Bulls shot only 4-for-15 from the floor. For the game, Derrick Rose missed all six of his three-point shots, although he did wind up with 25 points on 9-for-21 shooting. Taj Gibson, still suffering the effects of a concussion from last weekend, played only 31 seconds.

Nevertheless, Carlos Boozer’s double-double — he had 30 points and 10 rebounds — led the Bulls to a 87-80 win over the Wizards in Washington last night. This Bulls team has already had to deal with injuries to two key players — Boozer and now Joakim Noah — and yet they appear to be able to deal with adversity quite well. Gibson was quoted as saying that he was fine and could have played more — with a couple of days off, hopefully he’ll be close to 100% against the Knicks on Saturday morning.

Oh, and one more thing. With the departure of Gilbert Arenas, Andray Blatche is now the Wizards’ leading scorer with a 16.8 PPG average. However, if he keeps doing what he did in this video, that average is going to start going down real fast:

I’m pretty sure just about anyone could make a layup like that. Blatche wound up shooting 3-for-14 last night.
