We'll probably win, but if we lose it's going to be because Derrick Rose torched us.

S---, he'll probably torch us either way. He doesn't shy away from superstars, he'll try to outdo Kobe. I expect an amazing game from both of them.

Scouting Report



This team relies on its energy and motion to be effective. They want to play fast and with rookie Derrick Rose they have the point guard to do it. We must be ready to restrict their movement – both with and without the ball. After stopping their transition game we must finish our defensive possessions with strong rebounding as this team is 5th in the NBA in offensive rebounds (13.4 per game). Containing the guards is the key to beating this team. The combination of Rose and Ben Gordon creating opportunities in a wide variety of screen and roll situations provides the Bulls with the majority of their offense. This is a perimeter oriented team and although Gooden and Deng will get some post-ups the majority of the offense generated by Chicago’s bigs will come from tracking down loose balls and offensive rebounds. Nocioni is a wild card for this team. His effort and intensity help give the Bulls their identity. He loves to sprint to the three point line in transition as well as in their pick and roll sets.

Defensively, the Bulls are excellent at taking charges. We need to be patient and execute our offense against this team. Rose, Deng, and Hughes all like to gamble and jump into passing lanes. The old basketball adage of ‘fake a pass to make a pass’ will apply tonight. If we throw lazy passes they will quickly turn into dunks and threes for the Bulls. Another way the Bulls get some easy buckets is by running hard to contest the perimeter shot then leaking out for the long pass from their rebounder. On the playground we used to call this ‘cherry-picking’. For a team that can struggle at times to create offense in the half-court, this is an effective way to get some points. An area that we can look to exploit is the transition game. Because the Bulls’ guards like to penetrate they sometimes have poor defensive balance and do not have the right numbers getting back on defense. We need to take advantage of this and get some easy buckets of our own. Finally, Chicago has played some zone usually in the form of a 3-2.

We must bring the correct energy and intensity to get back on track tonight. We will have a size advantage so we must capitalize on it. This is our first look at Rose but with the plethora of great point guards in the west we should be ready for his speed. Controlling the boards and helping the helper defensively will determine whether we win or lose tonight.

No, Rose is going up against Fisher and Farmar.

Kobe is guarding Gordon, Thabo, and Hughes.

Ill probaly flip back and forth, usually watch it during commercials
