Joakim Noah, appearing on Chicago’s Comcast SportsNet after the game, was asked how he keeps managing double digits in scoring and rebounding every game, and responded, “I know that’s my role on this team, and that’s what is expected of me.” He also went on to add, “Its good to be able to win these close games.”

Chicago’s Derrick Rose didn’t have his usual spectacular night of scoring, but he did come up big in this game when it counted. Rose ended up scoring a team high total of 18 points in the game for Chicago, but 8 of those points came at a crucial time in the 4th quarter. Joakim Noah had warm words of praise for Rose after the game, compliments of ESPN. “Derrick Rose is our leader.” Noah went on to say, “His shot wasn’t falling tonight, but down the stretch, he put the game on his shoulders. That’s why he’s such a special player.”



The Bulls had five players score in double digits on the night. Besides Rose’s 18 and Noah’s 13, Loul Deng scored 17 points in the game, Taj Gibson pitched in with 16 points, and Keith Bogans rounded the double digit scoring for Chicago with 10 points.

Chicago improved its record at home to 3-1 on the season, and their next game is home at the United Center in Chicago, against the 5-2 Golden State Warriors on Thursday night.
