Video: Pau Gasol Denies Mozgov While Swatting A Career-High Nine Blocks

Pau Gasol, Timofey Mozgov

The Bulls’ big man wasn’t shooting very well to start last night’s Denver-Chicago game. But for every bunny Pau Gasol was missing on the offensive end — he was 3-for-9 in the first quarter — he made up for it with a dominating performance protecting the rim, with a career-high nine blocks on the night, including a rejection of Timofey Mozgov where the ball plunked the much-maligned Nuggets center on the dome.

Butler Hits Go-Ahead 3-Pointer, But Says “I Couldn’t Play A Lick Of Defense”

George Hill, Jimmy Butler

If you want an example why Bulls wing Jimmy Butler is having a transformative year for the Bulls, his comments after Monday night’s 92-90 win in Indiana — Chicago’s seventh straight — works.

Ronnie Price, Derrick Rose

While Derrick Rose‘s line of 20 points (7/14) and six assists might now awe the average fan, after his 29-point game against Kyle Lowry and the Raptors in a Monday win, and his 25 points against John Wall and the Wizards in a Tuesday win — including 10 in the fourth – it’s a sign Rose is finally getting comfortable while finding a new niche on the court.
