Bulls 88, Pacers 84: Game 3 Rapid Reaction, Bulls Up 3-0


Hey look at that! A Luol Deng sighting!

The Chicago Bulls finally got a legitimate second scoring option in their 88-84 win over the Indiana Pacers, as Deng contributed 21 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists. Derrick Rose FINALLY got some scoring help.

-He sure didn’t get any offense from Carlos Boozer, who scored a whopping four, on 2-10 shooting.

-We also saw tonight what happens in the playoffs when Rose has a terribly off night shooting; he was only 3-17 before making the game winning drive. The Bulls still won, despite Rose not being Rose. And the MVP-to-be still wanted the ball in crunch time to make the big play.

-Winning a game or two like this at home could be considered “stealing a win,” but all three, including one at their building- this is just the trend. You can’t really call it winning ugly any more. But you can say “breakout the brooms” on Saturday.
