Nov 24: Bulls 101, Jazz 100Posted by Inside Hoops
The AP reports: Even when he missed, Derrick Rose was on target. The Chicago rookie tied his career high with nine assists and accidentally set up Larry Hughes’ game-winning shot as the Bulls beat the Jazz 101-100 on Monday night, giving Utah its first home loss of the season. With Chicago trailing 100-99, Rose took an 18-foot jumper that bounced high off the rim and right to Hughes, who beat the buzzer and the Jazz from 22 feet away. “We needed that win and we didn’t care how we got it,” said Rose, who scored 10 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter… Mehmet Okur had 26 points and nine rebounds for the Jazz, who outscored the Bulls 30-19 in the third quarter, but didn’t have enough to hold off Chicago down the stretch… Drew Gooden had 18 points and Ben Gordon scored 15 for the Bulls, who improved to 2-3 on a seven-game road trip… Paul Millsap had 21 points and 10 rebounds in his second start for Boozer before fouling out with 1:18 left in the game.
