Watch out for the Chicago Bulls. Right now they’re playing some of the best ball in the league.
After rolling over the Charlotte Bobcats last night, 106-94, the Bulls (37-16) have won eight out of their last 10 and are only two games back in the playoff push for the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference.
Bulls point guard and MVP candidate Derrick Rose (18 points and 13 dimes) led the show Tuesday night at the United Center in Chicago. The Bobcats, who were just coming off a big win Monday night against the Los Angeles Lakers, were paced by Stephen Jackson’s 20 points and six assists.
