VIDEO: Derrick Rose Monster Jam, 'A D-Rose Poster'

Early in the fourth quarter of last night’s 95-82 Bulls win over the Pistons, a turnover started a Bulls fast break, with Ronnie Brewer feeding Derrick Rose for an alley-oop jam. The Bulls were in the process of erasing a halftime deficit to win easily, by 13.

It was called “a D-Rose poster” on the CSN Chicago telecast — and it definitely could be made into one. Here, see for yourself:


Boozer And Deng Also Have Strong Games

Chicago, IL (Sports Network) – Derrick Rose finished with 29 points to go along with seven assists, and the Chicago Bulls used a strong second half to top the Detroit Pistons, 95-82, at United Center.

Carlos Boozer notched a double-double with 27 points and 11 rebounds, while Luol Deng added 17 points and eight rebounds for the Bulls, who have won seven straight at home and 10 straight in this series.

Tayshaun Prince led the Pistons with 15 points and Austin Daye contributed 14 points in a reserve role for Detroit, which has dropped four of five. Rookie Greg Monroe added 10 points and 11 rebounds in the loss.

Prince led the way with 11 points in the first quarter, and the Pistons took a 25-20 lead after the opening 12 minutes. Daye added 14 points in the second, on 6-of-6 from the field, as the Pistons widened their margin to 55-43 at the half.

Chicago opened the third quarter on a 13-2 run, capped by a Boozer reverse layup and a pair of Deng free throws, to cut its deficit to 57-56 just under the seven-minute mark.

Boozer added another bank shot at 4:52 to tie the game at 61. Rodney Stuckey then responded with a long three on the next possession to keep the Pistons up.

However, two Rose free throws and a Deng powering dunk with 1 1/2 remaining put the Bulls up 71-70. The baskets also started a 9-0 run to end the quarter, giving the Bulls a 76-70 lead entering the final stanza.

The Chicago lead expanded to nine, 84-75, on a pair of Rose free throws with 7:34 remaining. After Prince responded with a layup and Monroe made 1-of-2 from the line, Chicago’s advantage was down to six.

However, Boozer connected on a long jumper and sank a long three off a Pistons shot clock violation to push the Bulls margin to 89-78. The Bulls’ lead remained around 11 until Ronnie Brewer made two from the line with 29.6 ticks remaining to account for the final margin.

Chicago has won 15-of-17 in this series…Brewer finished with 11 points and six assists for the victors…Chicago shot 92 percent from the charity stripe…The Pistons held a 43-40 rebounding margin…Stuckey and Chris Wilcox finished with 11 and 13 points, respectively, in the loss.


Chicago Bulls Vs. Detroit Pistons: Keep The Winning Going

Go figure, right? The Bulls lose two winnable games in New Jersey and Philadelphia, and then come home to face the best team in the Eastern Conference, the Celtics -- and beat them handily. This Jekyll-and-Hyde team hasn't shown its real face all year, largely due to injury -- their three best players, Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah and Carlos Boozer, have played only a handful of games together, and it will be another month, probably, until Noah is back. In the meantime, the Bulls have three more games against supposedly "easy" opponents before they face the Heat on Saturday, so they really... do... need... to... win... them. Meanwhile, it's conceivable that the Pistons might be involved in complicated three-way deal which would send Carmelo Anthony to the Nets. But that won't happen in time for them to get any new players tonight. The Pistons are 3-16 on the road, and the three wins are against the Kings, the Clippers and the Raptors -- the Bulls ought to win this one. Tonight's game begins at 7 p.m. CST and will be televised on CSN Chicago.
